GMO Internet, Inc. announced on Thursday the launch of a bitcoin mining business, “utilizing the next-generation 7nm semiconductor chip.” The company wrote:

We will use cutting-edge 7nm process technology for chips to be used in the mining process, and jointly work on its research and development and manufacturing with our alliance partner having semiconductor design technology.
