Intro
OMG Network, previously known as OmiseGo, is a Layer-2 scaling solution for Ethereum designed to enhance transaction speed and reduce costs while leveraging the security and decentralization of the main Ethereum network. It uses a technology called Plasma to create a network of child chains that can handle high volumes of transactions. Founded by Omise, a payment services company, OMG Network aimed to extend the capabilities of its parent company by facilitating faster and more affordable transactions across different asset classes and geographies. The network was officially launched in 2017, following a successful fundraising effort that attracted significant interest due to Omise's existing partnerships and the potential for blockchain in payment processing. OMG Network operates on a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, which allows it to process transactions off the main Ethereum chain, thus reducing congestion and fees. Validators on the network stake OMG tokens to secure the network and process transactions, earning transaction fees as rewards for their contributions. The network's design makes it compatible with Ethereum, allowing seamless asset transfers and interactions between the two networks. Despite its innovative approach and early lead in the Ethereum scaling space, OMG Network faced challenges from emerging Layer-2 solutions like Arbitrum and Polygon, which offered similar benefits. To revitalize the project and its community, OMG Network was rebranded to Boba Network, transitioning to a new Layer-2 solution called optimistic rollups. This move aimed to introduce improved transaction throughput, lower gas fees, and enhanced functionality for DeFi and NFT applications, making them more accessible to users. The transition was marked by a 1:1 airdrop of BOBA tokens to OMG holders
