At OmiseGO, we believe that having access to financial services can create economic opportunities and improve lives. We see a world where anyone with a mobile phone and access to the internet is able to store, send and exchange any type of digital value.
In 2015, the Omise Blockchain Lab was formed to explore avenues through which blockchain technology could solve real-world payment needs for businesses. After a few years of research and testing, OmiseGO (Omise Go Pte Ltd) was established in 2017 with a mission to enable people to securely access financial services, invest, exchange and spend digital assets anytime, anywhere. We are building a global platform for open financial services which includes the OmiseGO Network and the OmiseGO eWallet Suite.
Leveraging payment and blockchain expertise, we work 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.
The primary value in creating an open blockchain and token for OmiseGO as a technology provider, is creating a future-ready infrastructure for payments and other forms of value transfer services which we believe will be widely adopted.
Ethereum and the blockchain community
OmiseGO has been a big believer in Ethereum and its family of technologies, previously contributing to the Ethereum Foundation's DEVGRANTS initiative in 2015, as well as funding the development of Raiden, the Ethereum version of Lightning Network. The team has collaborated with many other exciting blockchain technologies including Hydrachain, Golem, Tendermint, Cosmos and Status. The company looks forward to continuing to give back in whatever way it can, so that everyone can benefit from these and other developments.
