Five comparison points that show the security of GMO coins

What is two-factor authentication?One of the security for logging in to the exchangeis. In addition to ID and password,Temporarily created disposable codeIf you do not enter, you can not log in.

This means that if your ID and password are stolen in the event of a hack, two-step verification will prevent you from logging in!


With GMO Coin, when you log in to My Page,You will be contacted at the registered email addressIt is like that.Even if a bad person gains unauthorized access, it is immediately found outSo you are more likely to protect your assets!


With GMO Coin, as a security measure,Monitors 24 hours a day for server intrusion and virus contaminationdoing. You can immediately detect any movement and take action to protect your assets!


Vulnerabilities are program defects or defects.

Vulnerabilities are more likely to be targeted by hackers,Regular security vulnerability assessments by security expertsWe are also focusing on collecting information on system vulnerabilities in cooperation with group companies!


It is very important whether a company manages the assets for operating the exchange and the assets it keeps with customers separately.

If you manage together,In the unlikely event that a company goes bankrupt, customer assets will be exhaustedThere is a possibility. If you are properly managed and separated like GMO coins, there is no such worry.

Why safety is important for exchanges

Cryptocurrencies, exchanges, comparisons

When choosing an exchange, we take "safety" very seriously.

I would like to talk a bit about why safety is important, what an insecure exchange is, and what risks it poses.

Where to deposit your assets

The virtual currency exchange may have a strong image of a "place to trade" in terms of an "exchange".

Of course, there is no difference that it is a place to do business, but ratherWhere to deposit your assetsDon't forget that.

If the management is not solid,Customer assets are lost or stolenIt is possible.

In order not toSeparate management of corporate and customer assetsAndSecurity measures by expertsThe important point is whether you are doing.

May be targeted by hackers

Cryptocurrency exchange is where huge assets gatherSo,Possibility of being targeted by bad hackersthere is.Highly secure exchanges such as GMO coins are safeHowever, exchanges where security measures are not enough will be a good prey for hackers.

In September of the same year,Zaif of a major exchange suffered hacking damage, BTC and BCH of about 60 billion yen leaked.

At this time, whether the countermeasures were strengthened or the damage amount was smaller than at the time of the coin check case, but stillMeasures such as partial outflow of customer assets and suspension of deposits and withdrawals every few months caused significant damage to customersHas been affected.
