OMG Network was established as a SYNQA subsidiary in 2017 to pioneer the development of Layer-2 infrastructure to support the ethereum blockchain ecosystem. SYNQA’s group mission is to “democratize finance through technology” and OMG Network has developed its Layer-2 blockchain solution to promote greater financial inclusion.

With GBV’s strong presence in the DeFi ecosystem, SYNQA believes OMG Network will accelerate the expansion and adoption of its technology and continue on the path of providing greater financial inclusion.

The SYNQA Group will continue to develop blockchain technologies and other alternative technologies that can further the goal of decentralizing finance. SYNQA will be focusing on the development of business use cases for enterprise solutions.
