We’re very excited to announce that Chorus One is live on the Onomy Network! 

Onomy Protocol is pioneering a harmonious connection between traditional financial markets and the DeFi landscape - two worlds that have remained largely disjointed - by creating a vertically-integrated ecosystem  that emulates the familiarity of centralised exchanges but retains the decentralised ethos of Web3, Onomy will be presented to end-users in a digestible, retail-friendly ‘fintech shell’ whose backroom engine smoothens the transition from CeFi to DeFi for retail and institutions alike. 

Leveraging a Cosmos-based layer-1, a hybrid DEX, bridge hub, stablecoin issuance protocol, and additional contributions built on the ecosystem, Onomy is creating the perfect conditions for Forex markets to thrive on-chain. 

Introducing Onomy: An On-Chain Fintech Hub for DeFi

Onomy Network (ONET): A Fast and Secure Proof-of-Stake Blockchain

The Onomy Network is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain constructed using the Cosmos SDK framework, which enables it to achieve scalability by leveraging the infrastructure supported by a network of institutional validators, like Chorus One

With a block time of just five seconds, and its high throughput, low latency, and low fees features, the Onomy network is made to be ideal for financial transactions.

Onomy Exchange (ONEX)

Supporting various order types, including limit, market, conditional, and stop-loss orders, the Onomy Exchange (ONEX) stands out as a unique hybrid, multi-chain decentralised exchange (DEX) on which traders can buy and sell cross-chain through an order book with no trading fees incurred, whilst liquidity providers can get involved and earn rewards from the AMM running in the back-end. 

This empowers users to trade both crypto and Forex pairs effortlessly while also offering cross-chain trading, advanced charting, and more. 

“The Hybrid DEX combines the importance and familiarity of order books while retaining the flexibility and security of AMMs.” - Lalo Bazzi, Co-founder, Onomy Protocol

Essentially, ONEX aims to provide a high-volume trading experience similar to that of traditional centralised exchanges (CEX), but in a decentralised and non-custodial manner on the blockchain. 

Arc Bridge Hub

The Network powers the Onomy Arc Bridge Hub, a cross-chain transfer solution that integrates inter-blockchain communication (IBC) and allows users to easily traverse between prominent blockchains both within and beyond the Cosmos ecosystem, such as Near, Avalanche, Polygon, Ethereum, Neon, etc. Additionally, the Arc Bridge solves the issue of approving multiple cross-bridge transactions by reducing it to a single approval, making the user experience significantly simpler. 

Onomy Reserve (ORES)

Onomy Reserve (ORES) is the linchpin of the ecosystem and the fundamental driver behind Onomy’s core long term mission. A decentralised reserve bank, the ORES will provide on-chain minting of stablecoins, or denominations (Denoms) of fiat currencies. 

The goal is to create a trusted, decentralised system through which national currencies can be exchanged at speed on-chain and with broader integration with the wider DeFi ecosystem and the advantages composable finance brings and the efficiencies it entails for this titanic, $7 trillion per day market. The ORES will function as a gateway for liquidity across all integrated blockchains and will support multiple national currencies, with the native $NOM coin playing a key role. 

$NOM Utility

$NOM is Onomy’s native network and governance token. It’s used by validators (like Chorus One) and their delegators to secure the proof-of-stake blockchain, but also to cover transaction fees, and vote on governance proposals in the Onomy DAO which manages the on-chain treasury with no centralised control. $NOM will have a key role to play in the Onomy Reserve as highlighted in the Onomy Improvement Proposals, with additional utility to be voted on by the DAO. 

Onomy, Forex, and the New Economy

For crypto’s next great wave of adoption to occur, access to crypto needs to be easier, faster, and more intuitive - while also continuing to lay the scaffolding for a decentralised financial system that works entirely on-chain. Onomy is that convergence point. 

Powered by a strong team of crypto natives and backed by prominent crypto investors among the likes of Chorus One, Bitfinex, UDHC, GSR, DWF Labs, CMS Holdings LLC, and more. Onomy offers new possibilities for on-chain FX markets and broadens access to DeFi for the individual and institutional investor.

$NOM is already live for trading on Kucoin, Bitfinex, and MEXC.

Onomy will unlock DeFi for the masses, and Chorus One is thrilled to be part of the journey.
