What is OmiseGo ?
OmiseGo has the vision to become the number one decentralized exchange- and transaction-platform for cryptocurrencies.
To buy cryptocurrencies, it is usually necessary to exchange a Fiat-currency (such as USD or EUR) for the desired cryptocoins. There are currently very few ways to convert a cryptocurrency to another on one exchange. OmiseGO aims to replace the current method of buying and selling cryptocurrencies from exchanges.
By connecting existing cryptocurrency-wallets to a central OmiseGO-blockchain, users can quickly and easily exchange different cryptocurrencies.
Therefore, Omisego becomes a unique decentralized and currency-agnostic exchange- and transaction-platform.
The OMG-coins can be seen as an investment in the OmiseGo-concept, not as a actual cryptocurrency.
