Merchants who already using Omise payment solutions
- McDonalds - 150 Million USD
- Dtac - 36 Million
- True - 3.7 Billion USD
- Thai Airway - 5.4 Billion USD
- Alianz Ayudhya - 2.35 Billion USD
- AXA - 102 Million USD
I am guessing that the move to OmiseGo's blockchain will be automatic. They are already using Omise. Hopefully the user experience doesn't change, the service just becomes instant and blockchainified.
If you want to invest in Omisego, it is worth researching the relationship between OmiseGo and all these companies, but the important take away here is that Omise have done their due diligence and there is demand for their product if they can deliver on what was promised. There are rumoured to be other partnerships, but it isn't confirmed, and I don't see why they would keep that info a secret.
The OmiseGO Management Team

OmiseGO's Dream Team of Advisers
- Joseph Poon, co-author of the lightning network, is the principle author of OmiseGO.
- Vitalik Buterin, founded Ethereum when he was 19. The guy has weaponized autism. If I am going to trust someone to tell me when blockchain can do something, it is going to be him.
- Dr. Gavin Wood, coded the first functional implementation of Ethereum with Vitalik. He is a world leading computer scientist who contributed massively to C++ and all round over achiever.
OmiseGO price and other Trading Information You Should Know Before Investing in Omisego
It is very difficult to take a substantiated guess at OmiseGo's potential market cap. There are Reddit forums from only 4 months ago saying it's unrealistic to expect the OmiseGO price to rise above $10, yet we saw an all time high of $21.51 the week before last. Buy OmiseGo short term, this coin is due for a pump.
They released a wallet SDK in beta just before Christmas. Honestly, I expect it the OmiseGO price to fly. It made some waves, but it was also a sombre reminder that OmiseGO doesn't score to well on hype. It is definitely worth filling a pot for the long term, but don't expect crypto's typical 150% 24 hour short term gains when you buy omisego
These announcements are going to continue as their wallet gets closer to release. If you are thinking to invest in OmiseGO, you need to understand that the real potential of this coin won't be realised until 2018 - 2022.
Problems with OmiseGo's Visions
I am trying to be objective here but Omisego coin is going to the moon. I scanned Reddit and Telegraph and did a quick sentient analysis. The sceptics want everyone to note that the tech might not work. It is an ambitious project. Proof of stake isn't as tested as proof of work, and there is concern that they might not transition nicely to their own blockchain?
OmiseGO was held back by a mediocre roadmap. It was very wordy and didn't explain a lot of the questions that investors had been asking. They also pulled some fluffy marketing tricks with Apple logos and took pictures that made it look like they had partnered with other massive companies.
They have also moved some of the releases on their roadmap back. I reason that this is fairly common with large, ambitious projects, so I am not worried. I think we would know already if the wallet was going to be dealyed again, and I think Q1 2018 is very likely.
OmiseGo might work perfectly and another company could just step in and become more popular.
OmiseGo's Proof of Stake
Before I continue, know that there has been very little confirmed about how OmiseGo coin staking is going to work. There is no consensus on how many coins will be required to stake, and what the rewards will be. It is still bloody exciting to know that by investing in OmiseGo, we might be getting paid just to hold Omisego coin in a wallet.
The most information we have on how to stake OmiseGo comes from the Crowdsale Document
- Token Mechanism -section
"OMG will be a standard Ethereum ERC20 token, until the OmiseGO chain (“OMGchain”) is launches. When OMGchain is launched, ERC20-OMG is used as a Proof-of-Stake token on this network. This is achieved by allocating control of one’s the ERC20 to an ETH contract reflecting the OMG chain. Further improvements are possible from reallocation of ERC20 tokens and may be taken if it proves to be a better design, but the current approach is to have the ERC20 token locked into activity on a contract on the ETH chain. It is the responsibility of the community to elect to allocate the ERC20 token towards the OMG chain, as the community has control over the network."
