The largest manufacturer of mining equipment Bitmain will submit a listing application to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in September. The company plans to raise $ 3 billion during the IPO, according to Bloomberg, citing informed sources.

It is noteworthy that Cihan Wu intends to expand the range of the company's activities and bring it to the market of artificial intelligence. It should be noted that many representatives of the crypto-currency community refer to these plans with a share of skepticism.

CoinDesk argue that Bitmain intends to raise $ 18 billion, surpassing the IPO of the Facebook. In this case, the capitalization of the mining giant can range from $ 40 billion to $ 50 billion.

It also became known that the company received serious position on Bitcoin Cash, probably due to the sale of bitcoins. A number of industry experts believe that in the second quarter of 2018 Bitmain suffered huge losses.

It is worth noting that competitors of the giant Canaan Creative and Ebang can also enter the IPO in Hong Kong.
