info_outline What is OmiseGO



OmiseGO Short Description

OmiseGO is building a decentralized exchange, liquidity provider mechanism, clearinghouse messaging network, and asset-backed blockchain gateway. OmiseGO is not owned by any single one party. Instead, it is an open distributed network of validators which enforce behavior of all participants.

It uses the mechanism of a protocol token to create a proof-of-stake blockchain to enable enforcement of market activity amongst participants. This high-performant distributed network enforces exchange across asset classes, from . at-backed issuers to fully decentralized blockchain tokens (ERC-20 style and native cryptocurrencies). Unlike nearly all other decentralized exchange platforms, this allows for the decentralized exchange of other blockchains and between multiple blockchains directly without a trusted gateway token.

Markets may be able to signi. cantly reduce spreads and encourage market assurance via decentralizing custody and increased transparency of market activity. This is achieved using smart contracts, protocol tokens enforcing correct market behavior of order book matching, a new construction of Ethereum bonded external enforcement of clearinghouse activity and commitments to historical exchange data for use with Ethereum smart contracts..

Update: Ropsten still isn't 'stable' but due to our resilience algorithm blocks 16,000 and 17,000 are mined. We're confident that the child chain will recover as Ropsten does. We'll monitor the situation and give you an update tomorrow. #omgnetwork #ropsten 52 favorite
Update: Currently, on the OMG Network V1 Testnet, blocks 16,000 and 17,000 have been submitted, but not mined on Ropsten. The child chain will try to resubmit those blocks, once the Ropsten returns to normal block production. #omgnetwork #ropsten 42 favorite

Product description


Storming the market to compete with the other altcoins, OmiseGO comes with the aim of becoming an exchange, asset-backed blockchain and most importantly a decentralized bank that could be used to make payments to anyone anywhere around the world. The network gives you the freedom to work with both cryptocurrencies and fiat (USD, EUR …) currencies as well. The marketing strategy of OmiseGo targets people who are not already using banks for transaction, and their focus areas include, India, Japan, and China.
OmiseGo defines its goal as trying to become a ‘’preeminent high-value exchange and a settlement platform’’. The purpose behind its advent was to build a user-friendly platform that could connect different methods of payment, be it in the form of some cryptocurrency or any fiat currency. Now, this vision is not something new and has been expressed by many crypto-technologies before. OmiseGo takes the lead with its new technology called Minimal Viable Plasma, which is built upon the Ethereum Network. This technology aims to multiply the available throughput of transactions per second (Poon, 2017).



The actual product of the OmiseGo blockchain is aimed at achieving the execution of the Minimal Viable Plasma network that will render it to generate high throughput rates. However, the technology is not developed fully and there are still some major hurdles to overcome for its smooth integration and execution. The initial deployment and testing phase of OmiseGo commenced in February 2019 (Crypto Index, 2018).



OmiseGo is a blockchain-based product of the Omise Company. The CEO of Omise is Jun Hasegawa. Jun founded the project with Donnie Harinsut when they both worked for the Ethereum blockchain. In fact, Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin has been one of the prominent advisors for the OmiseGo blockchain cryptocurrency.


How things stand


OmiseGo has remained an unpopular coin for a long time largely because of its not-so-impressive marketing strategy. It has not been around much in the news and no major scandal has hit the coin, whether good or bad. The main setback that the project is facing is that the Plasma Network has not yet been developed. Timely development and execution of the plasma network will likely be a future project. Lately, rumours have been circulating in the market that OmiseGo has appointed a new CEO because the former CEO couldn’t meet up with deadlines and delivery of the important projects. The new CEO has been identified as Vansa, but there is no information available to the public concerning her.
The technology has been developed under the advisory supervision of Vitalik, the founder of Ethereum. People are hopeful about the technology partly due to his involvement in its development (Pandorasbox, 2017).



Despite the fact that OmiseGO is a project being developed under a very competent team, the mainnet (official live version) of the blockchain has still not being delivered even after two years. The GitHub repository shows a very slow development history. There is not much code commits each day, a large number of which are also simple minimal changes which should not be considered as upgrades of considerable importance.



Security OmiseGo is an ERC-20 token and is security-wise strong because of the Ethereum blockchain.
Transaction cost The transaction costs are similar to that of the Ethereum network.
Enery consumption OmiseGo is based on the Ethereum network, therefore, its energy requirements are low as compared to other major cryptocurrencies.
Decentralization OmiseGo is a decentralized ERC-20 Token.
Exchange availability The coin is available on the major trusted exchanges.
Adoption The acceptance rate is low as no official partnership has been announced.
Transactions per second The plasma technology aims to maximize the throughput which will allow many more transactions to be processed every second. The Plasma technology isn't developed yet.
Transaction speed Bound to the Ethereum network or the Plasma technology, that’s not developed yet
Product availability The prototype is not yet available, and there seems not to be too much progress lately.
Privacy Transactions with OmiseGo are pseudonymous and can be tracked.

The prediction for OmiseGo is very straightforward. Its success depends greatly on whether the team successfully completes the development of the Plasma technology in time. If for some reason they lag behind, there is the possibility that it will die down as other several altcoins. By the recent progress of the team, it doesn’t look like the development will take place in time.



The main project that hyped up the arrival of OmiseGO was the minimum viable plasma technology. It will allow the Ethereum-based blockchain network to generate maximum data through adding rates to enable fast cross-payments.
Another project that the Omise team has announced is that they are trying to establish a cryptocurrency exchange of their own. The exchange will be known as GO.Exchange.



The potential is huge and the time is short. Many altcoins are working on a technology that could connect banks and online transfers to their blockchain network. Whoever builds the technology first will be successful in capturing the market and will lead the race on global dominance.




The vision to become a decentralized bank has been shared by many other altcoins. As it stands, OmiseGo’s biggest competitions are Ripple and Stellar Lumens. OmiseGo is focusing on people who do not have easy access to banks and is providing them with a platform to send and receive funds using its network.



OmiseGo has not entered into any major partnerships, mainly because the team has not completed its work on the development of the mainnet. The blockchain’s connections with the Omise Company will prove to be substantial for its widespread acceptance and what it intends to achieve in the near future.



OmiseGo has managed to maintain a huge and somewhat reliable community. OmiseGo was launched and marketed as OMG in September 2017.



OmiseGo team is headed by Jun Hasewaga and Donnie Harinsut. Another major contributor to the Minimal Viable Plasma technology is Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum.
