The company filed an application six months ago, for which it provided financial statements to the HKEx committee. However, during this period, the hearing on the application did not take place.

To re-register an application to HKEx, the company will need to disclose financial statements for the third quarter of 2018.

Today, 26.03.19, Bitmain published a blog post, in which it reported in new CEO Haichao Wang appointment and share some plans.

Bitmain’s listing application to HKex in September 2018 has reached its 6-month expiration date. We do recognize that despite the huge potential of the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry, it remains a relatively young industry which is proving its value. We hope regulatory authorities, media, and the general public can be more inclusive to this young industry. We will restart the listing application work at an appropriate time in the future.
