Features of OmiseGO

Features that distinguish it from other cryptocurrencies.
OmiseGO offers the exchange functionality but keeps all its transactions decentralised and stored on the blockchain. This keeps the data secure because a hacker cannot access one location to tamper with, say, the available funds of one person. A hacker would need to convince every user of the blockchain, making hacking attempts virtually impossible.
Delegated proof of stake:
Delegated proof of stake consensus process similar to the proposed Casper protocol for Ethereum.
Interconnected Blockchains:
Use of interconnected blockchains to scale transaction volume, similar to the lightning network but compatible with the Ethereum virtual machine as well as Bitcoin heritage chains.
Currency agnostic:
OmiseGO circumvents the process by claiming that it is currency agnostic. It doesn’t matter whether you’re converting ETH to USD, or ETH to BTC. The process and fees remain the same: one direct conversion with one tiny fee.
Decentralized Exchange:
Exchange order matching and exchange execution built into the consensus process, enabling the establishment of a truly decentralized exchange.
