GMO Internet has been moving on a lot of changes and new service launches throughout the year. The board of the company has also changed its financial year from April-March to January-December in order to standardize operations with different group companies, maintaining uniformity.
GMO is focusing on building its digital currency portfolio and has recently expanded into the cryptocurrency business with Bitcoin mining.
GMO Click is one of the biggest FX retail brokers by trading volume in the world, and it has been recording a steep decline in monthly trading volume for most of the year, with trading volumes slashed to half in August 2017 compared to the peak of $1.2 trillion in January 2017.
