To celebrate upcoming year, we prepared the summary of bitFlyer Group achievements in 2020 and important crypto events. We must admit it was quite a year! Let's hope 2021 will bring us even more things to celebrate.
Launched in Dec 2013, Monacoin is “Japan’s first cryptocurrency” and the outcome of a Litecoin hard fork. MONA was initially created as the native asset for a hash-finding game but has become increasingly popular, to the extent of being used for day-to-day payments & transactions.
We are proud to announce that bitFlyer Europe has launched the “Quick ID verification”. It allows new users to verify their account and start trading without limits in less than 5 minutes.
Second only to Bitcoin in terms of market capitalisation, Ethereum is an open-source, blockchain-powered, distributed computing platform. It also enables Smart Contracts and Decentralised Applications (DApps) that are effectively censorship-resistant, tamper-proof, and have minimal downtime.
Bitcoin’s popularity sky-rocketed in the next few years, driven primarily by the unprecedented possibilities that it enabled within the finance sector. However, in 2017, the community failed to reach a consensus regarding the network’s state, resulting in a hard fork that formed Bitcoin Cash.
