Be ready for BAT!

It was founded by Brendan Eich and Brain Bondy in 2017. Its main focus is digital advertising - it runs on the Ethereum blockchain and can be exchanged between advertisers, publishers and consumers. What does it do? BAT is integrated on a custom web browser called Brave. The purpose of it is to reward users with its token for viewing specific ad content based on their online activity. It also helps publishers create high-impact ads and reassures advertisers that their message is coming across efficiently to their target audience.

OMG! Say hello to OMG

It was created by Thai financial services company Omise in 2017. The aim of OMG is to allow users to transfer funds from different payment platforms. It runs on top of the Ethereum network, while integrating multiple wallets using the OMG Network. What does it do? Running on both Ethereum and the OMG Network, OMG enables users to freely move and convert assets (either crypto or traditional currency) between different blockchains. It also allows transfers between traditional providers, such as Visa and Swift.
