Last week, we announced a group of strategic partners who will support the growth and success of Omm. Today, we’d like to highlight one of those partnerships: that with Band Protocol.

Band’s oracle solution is critical for Omm and the safety of our users, so this post explores how Omm is using Band for the launch, and how the Band team plans to help Omm achieve its goal of becoming a cross-chain money market.

We’re excited to announce Omm, the next DeFi project to enter the ICON ecosystem. Omm (Open Money Market) is a decentralized peer-to-contract money market protocol owned and operated by OMM token holders. The inspiration came from the important role of Compound and Aave in the Ethereum DeFi ecosystem, and we hope the Omm protocol will play a similar role for the ICON ecosystem and a broader audience who haven’t experienced DeFi yet.

The Omm protocol will be a fair launch project following the ethos of the recent DeFi trends, and will take additional steps to push for mass adoption of…
