Meanwhile, Long Blockchain (LTEA), an iced-tea company that just changed its name from Long Island Iced Tea Corp., skidded 12%, its third straight sizable loss since its 183% Thursday spike.

Long Island Iced Tea on Tuesday said it had entered into a $ 2 million convertible debt facility to support its move toward investing in blockchain technology.
