Have Taoping's shares ever split?

Taoping's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 30 July 2020. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Taoping shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Taoping shares which in turn could have impacted Taoping's share price.

Taoping share price volatility
