GMO claims its crypto businesses, including mining equipment production and its crypto exchange, have gained 2.6 billion yen ($22.8 million) in revenue over the third quarter “in just a year since the launch.”
GMO Coin, an exchange platform launched by the company, has reportedly seen up to 208,000 users trading about 89 billion yen ($781 million) in October. GMO also reports that the profits are up 34.4 percent quarter on quarter (QoQ).
In the meantime, the revenues for GMO’s mining segment are also up QoQ, but profit has been down in the second and third quarters. The company yet again links the decrease to the “worsening external environment” and “increasing depreciation cost.” According to the statistics provided by GMO, in October their mining hashrate equaled 674 petahash per second (PH/s), but the company is planning to reach 800 PH/S within the year.
