The successful listing of Canaan on Nasdaq will make the company the first Chinese player to enter the US market.
Canaan has already tried three times to IPO on othersstock exchanges in Hong Kong and mainland China. Canaan plans to raise $ 400 million during the IPO, although it is unclear in what price range the company will place its shares. According to company representatives, they want to use these funds to finance research in the field of artificial intelligence and blockchain, as well as to pay off debts. Last year's drop in MTC prices brought Canaan losses of $ 16.7 million.
