Canaan posts $31 million loss for 2019
Ending September this year, a revenue of $132 million over the nine month period would give the company a net loss of $31.2 million. Canaan recorded a $45.8 million net loss by the middle of 2019. In an attempt to go public, Canaan officially filed its IPO in China and Hong Kong but saw the same attempt collapse due to regulatory misgivings. One of Canaan’s largest competitors Bitmain, has also tried to complete an IPO but all attempts have failed.
This year the company has seen its demands sky rocket to the point of outstripping its own supply and this is attributed to Bitcoin’s price jump since earlier this year. As reported by Cointelegraph, Bitcoin mining participants remain optimistic about the industry’s future perspectives.

In their latest IPO filing, Canaan stated that it sold a total computing power of 7.59 exhashes per second for first three-quarters of 2019. This translates to about 8% of bitcoin’s current network hash rate.
