泰国在线支付创企Omise拟借数字货币OMG融资1900万

近日有消息称,泰国在线支付创企Omise计划通过销售期数字货币OMG—也就是OmiseGo,以获得1900万美元融资。

据介绍,有了数字货币OMG以后,用户之间转账、支付等就不再需要银行账户,更不需要高额的手付费。

彭博社此前报道称,Omise希望能够进行首次货币发行(简称ICO),即使用比特币和以太币等数字货币进行融资。消息人士透露,ICO会在6月7日进行。

另外,根据相关条款,65%的OMG将在ICO期间销售,20%由Omise持有,用于公司未来的开销,10%给公司团队,剩下5%留给那些已经拥有以太币的人。

公开信息显示,Omise公司成立于2013年5月,在日本和东南亚提供类似Stripe的支付解决方案。

2016年7月20日,Omise宣布获得了一笔1750万美元的B轮融资,领投方是日本知名风投公司SBIInvestment。据悉,本轮融资是截至当前东南亚地区金融科技领域里规模最大的B轮融资。该公司计划利用这笔最新投资中的大部分扩大在东南亚市场的业务运营,同时加快旗下产品的研发进度。

B轮融资过后,该公司的融资总金额超过2000万美元。2015年10月,Omise获得Pre-B轮融资,融资金额未透露;2015年5月获得260万美元A轮融资;2014年8月获得30万美元种子轮融资。

据悉,Omise公司主要在泰国为网上商户提供在线支付网关服务,可以在移动端和网页端提供无缝的在线支付体验。该公司在确保交易安全的前提下支持最低限度的识别认证、同时用户无需支付月订购费用,Omise只对每笔支付交易收取非常低的手续费。此前,该公司还开发了社交网络支付产品。

Omise公司代表表示,为防止货币稀释,未来没有进行第二轮OMG销售的计划。

THAILAND-BASED fintech company Omise, which came into existence in 2013, wants to raise US$19 million by selling Omise Go (OMG) in an “initial coin offering” (ICO) – a cryptocurrency it created, much like bitcoin and Ethereum.

According to TechCrunch, the company raised over US$25 million after a Series B funding round in July 2016, which was used to expand its Southeast Asia influence. Omise aims to consolidate payment solutions throughout the region – which is notorious for being so fragmented – to encourage financial inclusion.

Through this potential ICO, Omise – who is backed by Japan’s SBI Investment – reportedly wants to use the funds to run a network that allows users to make financial transfers and transactions without paying high service fees, or even without a bank account. TechCrunch said that sources close to the company said there would be a token sale on June 7.

Smaller blockchain and bitcoin companies have made ICOs popular among themselves, but now, more mainstream businesses are beginning to throw their hats in the ring.

CEO Jun Hasegawa told Bloomberg in March, as the company was planning the ICO, Omise will be “the first mainstream business to pioneer the use of a token sale to bring new product to market”.

He was quoted saying: “For the public, this token sale provides an opportunity to share the benefit of a future Omise product, and later to participate in running the mobile money network itself.” Hasegawa was referring to the crowdfunding model, where prospective investors use Ethereum’s digital currency ether to gain OMG tokens – this then gives them a share of fee revenue from the OMG payments platform.

Omise co-founder Donnie Harinsut said in a video explaining the ICO: “The reason we chose blockchain technology is that we want to build a network that people can trust. We want everyone to have access to financial services no matter who you are in society. It’s a fundamental right, not a privilege.”
