  • Temporary Shutdown of Mining Computing Power: Canaan disclosed that it had decided to temporarily shut down about 2.0 Exahash/s of its mining computing power in Kazakhstan since July 2023. This action was taken to ensure compliance with legal requirements.
  • Significant Impact: The shutdown accounted for approximately 50% of Canaan's total installed computing power in Central Asia and North America. This total was 4.0 Exahash/s by the end of the first quarter of 2023. The move was expected to considerably impact the company's operational mining computing power starting in the third quarter of 2023.
  • Arbitration Proceeding: Canaan US, the company's subsidiary, announced its intention to file an arbitration demand due to the inability to reach a settlement through mediation with a business partner. The company intended to proceed with arbitration to resolve the dispute between the parties.

The press release concluded by stating that these challenges were anticipated to have a significant effect on Canaan's operational mining computing power starting from the third quarter of 2023.
