OmiseGO (OMG) is an ethereum based proof-of-stake (PoS) platform that enables businesses and individuals to securely access a wide range of financial services, invest, exchange, and spend digital assets anytime, anywhere.

The organization works with enterprises, startups and non-profit organizations to form their payment and eWallet strategy, provide technical consulting services and implementation support, and co-create new products.

OmiseGO is one of two blockchain projects officially advised by Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum. Currently, OmiseGo facilitates online payments for major corporations like McDonalds and Burger King in Thailand and is working with the Thai government to create a digital identity program.

History

OmiseGO is an independent extension of the company Omise, an established payment processor in Southeast Asia.

In 2015, the Omise Blockchain Lab was formed to explore how blockchain technology could solve real-world payment issues for businesses. The OmiseGO ICO launched in July 2017 and raised more than $25 million.
