The role of GO-NET Japan is to establish a business, in which we provide a next-generation network infrastructure anticipating the rise of a cashless and IoT society.
As we all foresee the progress of DX in all contexts in our everyday life, it is my belief that the key elements of payment and business process management are being Internet Native, being Secure, being capable of achieving overwhelming Scalability, at the same time providing the technology to handle large volumes of transactions, with the highest anti-tampering environment, and last but never the least important, to provide these service at low-cost. "GO-NET" is an innovative blockchain platform that has the capability to provide an answer to all these requirements.
GO-NET was developed in collaboration with Akamai Technologies,Inc., and its core functions are built on the Akamai platform. This allows GO-NET to take full advantage of Akamai’s decentralized computing technology which they have developed for more than 20 years, and the benefits of Edge servers deployed in hundreds of countries worldwide, ensuring high-speed, secure, and stable communications.
In addition, because GO-NET is equipped with our proprietary blockchain technology, it provides high levels of security measures and the capability of handling mass volume of transactions which were difficult to achieve with existing technologies. We believe that our capacity to process more than 100 thousand transactions per second will enable us to handle large number of small amount payments in a sufficient manner.
More to say, GO-NET can expand its processing capability to more than 1 million or 10 million per second by means of scale-up and scale-out. While starting to provide services that cannot be actualized with the existing infrastructure today, GO-NET had originally been developed with the scope of functioning as an infrastructure that can meet the high-level specifications required for the next 10 years.
The passion embodied in the corporate name GO-NET Japan, represents creating an innovative network that can be used by a wide range of businesses as a global and open platform.
Looking ahead, we plan to provide GO-NET in a wide range of payment areas, including Credit Cards, E-money, Digital Currencies, Loyalty Points, and Prepaid Cards. Additionally, we will consider further possibilities of expanding our services in order to actualize transactions in various scenes of the IoT era.
With the goal of " Breaking the Limitations of conventional Payment transactions through Innovative Networks" and " Creating and supporting a world of Lean and Smart Economic transactions and activities," we will work with our customers to pave the way for a new landscape through digital transformation.
I am looking forward to working with you, whom we can share our visions and goals to each other, in the coming years ahead.
