“Omni is a platform for creating and trading custom digital assets and currencies. It is a software layer built on top of the most popular, most audited, most secure blockchain -- Bitcoin. Omni transactions are Bitcoin transactions that enable next-generation features on the Bitcoin Blockchain. Our reference implementation, Omni Core is an enhanced Bitcoin Core that provides all the features of Bitcoin as well as advanced Omni Layer features.”
What we don't like:
Sometimes being the first to a new technology can have strong downsides. Omni is much like Xanga was to social media, necessary to start, but ahead of its time. The technology behind modern platform coins like Ethereum, NEO, and Lisk leaves Omni in the dust. We should be thankful to the ideas that Omni gave to the crypto space. At the same time, it’s likely Omni’s best days are behind us.
What we like:
The Omni protocol paved the way for crypto tokens. Without the foundation Omni laid we wouldn’t have projects like Ethereum, NEO and Dragonchain.
