Greeting from CEO Mr.Kumagai about releasing the cryptocurrency mining machine.
Bitcoin is the largest invention after the internet came out, but there are two big issues.
1.Chinese mining machines are in most of mining.
It is coming to difficult to say the decentralized society as Satoshi Nakamoto has originally mentioned.
2.Japan doesn’t participate in this field at all despite we have been good at making things.
Today’s purpose is to show the answers for these two questions.
GMO group has been striving for the following until today.
Internet → Eliminate boundary of information
From now GMO are going to work for the following.
Cryptocurrency → Eliminate boundary of money.
We can see that cryptocurrency is gold or currency in only our future, but can’t doubt that it has already the value as gold.

GMO sells the machine by lottery to show support for decentralization of Bitcoin if the number of orders exceed the number of supplies.
It means even individual has chance to acquire this world best performance mining machine at this moment.
GMO is certainly challenging to solve these two issues as Mr.Kumagai has mentioned.(Top part of the article)
This is the first ambitious and specific effort to aim the NO.1 in the world with Japanese technology in mining which essential for cryptocurrency.
Also, since GMO has long term experiences as a rental server company, the skill is utilized for managing mining farm.
This latest technology development should have never been easy. In this days, Japan has not getting any attraction in crypto field.
But, this announcement has showed the existence of Japan clearly. I will keep supporting GMO’s bold challenge!
