OmiseGO’s goal sounds promising as a trader as you don’t need to pay extra transaction fee just to get your crypto of choice.




OmiseGO aims to provide a digital coordination between payment processors, gateways, and financial institutions. It is a subsidiary of Omise, a payment gateway service provider prominent in Southeast Asia and has operation hubs in Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, and Singapore.

This article had a slight modification on October 2, 2018.

OmiseGO (OMG) wants to disrupt exchanges, payment processors, and financial institutions through the OMG network. Currently, if you want to trade your bitcoin for ether you will have to deal with an exchange site to trade. With OMG network and its coordination between cryptocurrencies (plus other currencies, asset types, national borders, and corporate ledgers) you can exchange your BTC to ETH directly.

OmiseGO has their own token called OMG and here is how you can get one.

How to Buy OMG in the Philippines

We have articles in using Bittrex and Binance for trading any altcoins. Binance has the largest volume of OMG trades.

Two things to notes. Some exchanges do not accept applications at the moment. If your choice of exchange does that, simply find another exchange. 2nd, understand that OMG is traded usually against bitcoin or ether and not against any fiat currency. This is the same for most altcoins.

Buy OmiseGO on Abra

Abra supports depositing fiat via local banks and through credit cards. You can exchange bitcoins for OMG within the Abra App. Should in case you want to cash out, you can do via partner merchants like Tambunting.
