A More Flexible Global Economy :
Contributing to the development of cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin)
Internet has eliminated the boundary related to information and changed the way the world is. Similarly, cryptocurrency is likely to eliminate the boundary related to money and further change the global economy.
Bitcoin is currently the most widespread cryptocurrency out of more than 1,000 types of cryptocurrencies. Its market capital has exceeded USD 110 billion (approximately JPY 12 trillion as of November 2, 2017), which accounts for over 60% of cryptocurrency's total market capital.
GMO Internet Group will support mining infrastructure of Bitcoin by leveraging our technological strength and accumulated know-how on Internet infrastructure and financial services, which have No. 1 FX trading volume worldwide, contributing to development of cryptocurrencies that make the global economy more flexible.
The process to verify and add transaction data to blockchain supports mining infrastructure of Bitcoin
Bitcon is built on blockchain technology that regularly adds all transaction records to blockchain, which is a chain of blocks saved on the network.
If transaction data of Bitcoin, which is exchanged all over the world, is transmitted to the network, miners worldwide will compete to generate a block of transaction data of a given time period.
The exact block needs to be generated while recording to the blockchain and ensuring the integrity of the new transaction data.
The work involves intensive computation. If a given miner succeeds in generating the block first, and the block is approved and added to blockchain, Bitcoin is issued as a reward to the miner.
Data fraud is prevented and Bitcoin is kept integrated and safe through the above process ("mining").
