Canaan Creative, a leading bitcoin mining equipment manufacturer, listed its shares on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “CAN,” priced at $9, on November 22.

The Block reported that the firm raised a total of $90 million in its initial public offering (IPO) by offering 10 million American depositary shares (ADS). The first hour of trading saw Canaan’s shares trading as high as $11.23, before plummeting to below $9 within 30 minutes.

As reported previously, the firm was seeking to raise $100 million in the IPO, having put a placeholder amount of $400 million in late October. According to the details on Crunchbase, Canaan’s valuation at IPO is $1.4 billion.

According to an online post by BlockTrain, Canaan’s offering was managed by Citigroup Global Markets Inc., China Renaissance Securities (Hong Kong) Ltd., and CMB International Capital Ltd. With its IPO, the firm intends to expand the development of AI-applications for ASICs.

Founded in 2013, Canaan is the manufacturer of high-performance integrated circuits and is the company behind the Avalon bitcoin mining machines. The company previously sought listings in China and Hong Kong in August 2017 and May 2018, both of which were subsequently suspended.

I know about stolen Bitcoins a little too much and this is because I have been tricked into investing in a Bitcoin company that turned out to be a scam, so I had my bitcoins stolen.

The digital and virtual nature of the cryptocurrency makes it hard to trace hence it is a nightmare when you get swindled of your coins. Losing my 9 BTC to fraudsters last year was agonizing and tortuous as I did not know where to turn. I gave up hope, beat myself up for being dumb but about the evil nature of the criminal fraudsters. I was licking my figurative wounds with a lot of “what ifs”, wishing to turn back the hands of time when I stumbled upon ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM

To be fair, I did not take them seriously at first but I decided to give it a shot as I literally had nothing to lose at the point. Recovering lost cryptocurrency is near impossible but by reporting the situation to ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM , you give yourself a fighting chance at recovering what was lost. They have the technology to do the near impossible. You can simply send an email or WhatsApp on +1 206 745-0108
