What’s new? Chinese manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining rigs Canaan intends to open its own mining farm in the United States. According to Canaan senior vice president Edward Lu, joint ventures for cryptocurrency mining will also be launched in the States. The recent increase in taxes for miners in Kazakhstan has forced Canaan to look for new jurisdictions to diversify its business. The US is seen as a more stable country in that regard, Forkast reported.

“Today the real output, or revenue, coming from self-mining or joint-mining, are coming from Kazakhstan at the moment, and soon you’ll see other markets as well. Mining in Kazakhstan is doing well and moving faster, and we expect big growth as well.”

What is known about Canaan? The company was founded in 2013 by Nangeng Zhang, headquartered in China. It specializes in blockchain servers and ASIC microprocessor solutions for bitcoin mining.
