Ebang representatives emphasized that the potential deal is subject to the “negotiation of a definitive agreement among the relevant parties” while the acquisition is not yet finalized.
The firm stated:
“There is no assurance that a definitive agreement will be entered into or that the proposed transaction will be consummated in time, or at all.”
Dong Hu, the CEO of Ebang, said:
“Leveraging our longstanding expertise in the blockchain technology and our recent expansions to Singapore, Canada and New Zealand, we have taken a giant stride toward our goal to build a fully-licensed, Internet-based trading platform that provides professional, convenient and innovative trading services.”
Likewise, Ebang went public on Nasdaq in June 2020.
Thus, the firm wants to set up a wide array of crypto-related services, including crypto mining farms, pools, digital asset financial service platforms, and others.
