mijin ‘2.0 Catapult’ to Integrate NEM protocol for Unparalleled Enterprise Performance

Tech Bureau’s mijin Opens Applications for Powerful New Enterprise Blockchain


TOKYO — NOVEMBER 6, 2017 — Fintech and cryptocurrency solutions company Tech Bureau today opened applications for mijin’s 2.0 Catapult, a powerful new blockchain integrating the NEM protocol to provide unparalleled performance for the enterprise. Companies are invited to apply for the β customer validation program through mid-November to be the first to use 2.0 Catapult. After participants are selected, the 2.0 Catapult address and access keys will be issued, and the blockchain will be launched when the validation program ends.

At present around the world, over 300 companies are leveraging mijin’s blockchain technology with both live and Proof of Concept (POC) systems running, as in September of 2015, tech Bureau set the stage for the technology’s wider use with its release of a private blockchain, mijin, that meets enterprise usage needs.

While the current version of mijin is being augmented to include enterprise cloud service as BaaS (Blockchain as a Service), the next generation blockchain technology “2.0 Catapult” mijin blockchain will be launched soon as an open source software after the launch of its β customer validation program today.


What is mijin?

Developed by Tech Bureau, mijin is designed to meet versatile enterprise needs with its enhanced private blockchain utilizing the NEM protocol that easily creates blockchain platforms on peer-to-peer networks. The blockchains can be used internally or in collaboration with partner companies in a cloud or other shared data environments.

mijin blockchain creates a secure data-sharing environment with high performance, zero downtime, and unfalsifiable data, while reducing the cost of conventional infrastructure. mijin has been tested extensively as a high-throughput ledger engine in financial institutions, electronic money systems, user authentication, land and property registration, logistics tracking, and food traceability.


What is 2.0 Catapult?

While the current mijin blockchain (1.0) was programmed in JAVA language, 2.0 Catapult was designed in C++ from scratch with the following main features.


  • Complete separation between API and blockchain network servers
  • NoSQL database on API server
  • High-speed transaction blockchain network capable of several thousand transactions simultaneously at reasonable cloud computing costs via a single node NoSQL API server
  • Implementation of a three-layered multi-signature function on the blockchain itself utilizing multi-level approval.
  • Aggregate transactions, a key feature that allows for multiple transactions to be processed simultaneously using the multi-signature function, realizing a secure escrow service without a third party.
  • Dual licensing, open source and enterprise, available after completion of validation testing of 2.0 Catapult mijin blokchain
  • The NEM public blockchain will be integrated with 2.0 Catapult in 2018.
  • Other features and improvements will be announced.
