Mt. Gox recently announced that it has partnered with Akamai to provide greater connectivity around the world to its customers and swift operations. The largest Bitcoin exchange in the world, Mt. Gox admits that with the partnership it will benefit a lot and deliver better as Akamai has thousands of servers all around the world.
An official release from Mt. Gox claims that partnering Akamai, it will be able to connect with its customers at their local level around the world. The company also assures the customers that with the partnership it will be able to deliver higher protection and efficient transaction process which has been condemned recently.
Mt. Gox with Akamai has transformed the performance and speed of transaction process which received flak from the customers. The performance has been greatly improved thanks to its decision to move from being a hosted service to being entirely self-hosted. Now, it has more flexibility in what it wants to do and has full control of its data center.
Akamai has globally located network of servers which rents to clients who want their websites to work faster by distributing content from locations close to the user. Thus, with the partnership with Akamai, Mt. Gox will be able to deliver services to its clients located around the world in real quick time irrespective of their locations.

Now, it has a new trading engine which will soon be operative. The company release says that code-named ‘Midas,’ the trading engine will be deployed after a couple of hardware updates. According to the company source this will be able to do over 500,000 trades per second which will be an amazing feature.
