      About Omisego

      OmiseGo (OMG) is an ERC 20 token on the Ethereum network. It was designed as a scaling finance solution to accompany Ethereum, allowing transparent, peer-to-peer transactions in real-time. Its leading motto is “Unbank the Banked” as stated on their website. OmiseGo is trying to create a decentralized exchange, where fiat ,assets and even blockchain tokens can be traded easily. Omise is the company behind the development of OmiseGo, however they do not own the network. It is run on a decentralized proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, with Omise acting as global integration solution for OmiseGo, linking the blockchain to the real world. The main benefit of a decentralized marketplace and exchange is the fact that no entity can have unilateral control, thus reducing security risks and making fees very, very low. OmiseGo is on the most well-known currencies in the crypto space, and will be adapting the Plasma scaling solution for Ethereum.

      History of Omisego(OMG)

      Omisego like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Omisego’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Omisego would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Omisego was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Omisego or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Omisego is a cryptocurrency with the symbol OMG and it’s price ticker on our website is 1.16. Its current price is 1.16 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 0.11. Omisego boasts a volume of 230,681.61 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Omisego Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Omisego use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Omisego base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Omisego and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Omisego network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Omisego Operates on a Blockchain

      Omisego, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Omisego is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Omisego is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Omisego’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Omisego runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Omisego base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Omisego are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Omisego and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Omisego also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Omisego Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Omisego (OMG) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Omisego’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Omisego’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Omisego which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Omisego blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Omisego blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.

      Immutable

      Since all information that is transmitted on the Omisego blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Omisego Supply Details

      Omisego is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. Another interesting fact about Omisego’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Omisego the total supply is 140245398. This is the sum of all Omisego units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Omisego is 140245398. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.

      How to Store Omisego

      There are a few way to store your Omisegos , and they all involve a certain types of both physical and electronic wallets.

With the private key, you can access your funds and send them to whoever you like, just as long as it is an address that Omisego is compatible with. Never ever disclose your Omisego private key or also called private address, as this will give anyone who has it full control over your wallet. The other type of key is the public key or address, which is used for other people to send Omisego to your wallet, and this one can be freely disclosed but it can be used to identify you if a name is ever associated with your public address.

      The only physical and non-electronic way to store your Omisego is through a paper wallet, and this is possibly the safest way to protect your Omisegos. Simply write the private and public keys of your Omisego wallet on a sheet of paper, however you will need access to an electronic device should you choose to send or move your Omisego funds to another address. The risk here is losing or damaging the sheet of paper with your Omisego public key.

Usually the hardware device that you store your Omisego on is offline which is a great security advantage.
