Genesis Block Ventures Welcomes OMG Network’s New Chapter with Enya Leadership

Genesis Block Ventures (GBV) is excited to formally introduce Enya as the leadership team of the OMG Network, marked by the launch of OMGX. Enya, led by Alan Chiu and Jan Liphardt, will become the core driving force for OMG, spearheading the next chapter of OMG’s mission to scale Ethereum.

Shortly after the acquisition of OMG, Genesis Block Ventures partnered with Enya to take OMG Network in a new direction. Enya’s cutting-edge privacy technology and experience combined with OMG’s Layer 2 research and development made the network one of the premier platforms for decentralized application developers.

The Enya team, working closely with OMG as well as OMG’s strong community, made significant progress and built multiple decentralized applications (dapps), including on-chain communications app Hashcast, the privacy-preserving exchange Varna, and Plasma’s fast-exit solution Quasar – all of which significantly expanded the Network’s capabilities.

GBV cannot emphasize enough their appreciation for everyone around the world, who played their part to develop, innovate and support the OMG Network. The network’s recent achievements also prove Enya’s dedication to deliver technologies that strengthen the Ethereum ecosystem and prepare it for mass adoption. 

The launch of OMGX marks the culmination of the team’s focused hard work over the past few months. OMG is now on an exciting path towards market leadership in Layer 2 scaling solutions. 

“With Enya’s leadership of the OMG Network, we see a bright future ahead for OMG to become a key player in leveling up Ethereum for wider use,” said Leslie Tam, Co-Founder and Partner of Genesis Block Ventures.
