This week, the OMNIA team is in Toronto, Canada, to participate in the ETHToronto hackathon event.
Held from August 8th to August 10th, ETHToronto brought together Ethereum developers and enthusiasts from around the world in the city where the project was first ideated by Vitalik Buterin back in 2014 and launched in 2015.
Since then, Ethereum has come a long way to become the world’s most dominant community-driven, open-source and smart contract blockchain project. Ethereum is also at the core of the decentralized finance industry, Non-fungible tokens, decentralized exchanges, and more.
OMNIA’s goal is to bring off-chain privacy to Ethereum in a decentralized way, thus protecting user data, such as IP addresses, from leaking to third parties. OMNIA supports four other networks: Bitcoin, BNB Chain, Polygon, and Avalanche.
