    Abstract

    The mining work concentration problem, whereby machine power is monopolized when supporting its operation, is becoming a serious problem in virtual currency using the blockchain technology that has drawn significant attention in recent years. The paper presents a new solution to solve the problem by using a simple virtual currency service that allows a user to operate the service by giving the user a new incentive based on gamification, not traditional economic incentives. We conducted experiments that show the feasibility of adopting the alternative incentive.
