Omisego: Learn about Omisego, a plasma scalable token based on ethereum and a proof-of-stake coin

By quintomudigo | Crypto Street | 2 Aug 2019


Omisego is a native token created on Ethereum Blockchain network whose transaction takes place from one peer to another without involvement by the government thus is being considered to be a decentralized asset. Omisego token has also implemented the Plasma scalability features on it thus block validation speed is very fast. The plasma scalability was mainly implemented on Ethereum blockchain in order to reduce network congestion as well as to enable easy creation of other chains on top of the main chain. It was also created to enable Ethereum token to be able to transform from being a proof-of-work to proof-of-stake without changing the blockchain. Because of this, Omisego was able to become a proof-of-stake coin. As a proof-of-stake coin, Omisego was created to enable people to easily get access to finance through investing and earning interest when the validators validate the coin transaction. As an Omisego user, different people can be able to exchange different cryptocurrencies in terms of fiat money. Also, different people will be able to transfer their crypto fund from one blockchain to another.

Process of creating Omisego

Unlike Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and Ethereum which are created as a proof-of-work through the mining process, For Omisego, that is not the case. Instead, it is a proof-of-stake coin. Although it already has a maximum supply of 140 million coins, the stakers will be allowed to stake the coin. At the same time, stakers will also be acting as validators. They are the one who will be responsible to set up the fees to be charged by the network such that when a DEX trading transaction takes place, they will be rewarded when the network validates the transaction. The validators should choose reasonable fees to be validated by the network so that they easily receive the reward. If validators set unreasonable low fees, the transaction will be validated by the network at a slower or might end up not validated thus receiving no reward. At the same time, if validators set very high unreasonable transaction fees, the network might end up ignoring their transaction thus no reward. Therefore, for easy rewarding as stakers, one should set a moderate reasonable fee and they will benefit by receiving reward from the network when their staking period ends. Stakers will be able to receive a staking reward of up to 3% per year. The more you stake the more you will earn and the little your stake the little the reward. As a staker, one might decide to become a solo staker which is less rewarding or one can join a pool staking which will yield more. Here is how the staking process takes place;
