Insights:

OMG Network consists of three products which are as below:

  • OMG Network Blockchain integrated with decentralized exchange enabling cross-chain transactions including asset and crypto trading. The transactions on OMG Network are validated via proof-of-stake where users can verify the transactions on the blockchain. 
  • OMG Network acts as a Layer-2 scaling solution to Ethereum through Plasma Architecture which increases the speed and security of data processing across the Ethereum blockchain network. The OMG Network is able to process thousands of transactions, moreover, Smart Contract and DApp are also available on the network due to their data compression. OMG Network is compatible with other blockchains via Clearing House and Smart Contract and works with Collateralization Fiat Token, enabling transactions across the wallet.
  • White Label Wallet, an open-source wallet, allows users to send or receive money or assets between OMG Network and other blockchains. The wallet uses a Software Development Kit (SDK) that allows developers to develop and design their own products, making it faster and reducing the working processes.

Risks:

  • OMG wallet can only be logged in from Ethereum wallet. Thus, if the private key or password of an Ethereum wallet is lost, users won’t be able to recover as these two wallets are connected.
  • A bug in the transaction process on blockchain can cause the loss of OMG tokens or other assets.

News and Updates:

  • Tether announces that users will be able to transfer USDT on OMG Network helping reduce Ethereum congestion and gas fees as transferring USDT on Ethereum Network requires quite a high gas fee.
