The native token for OMG Network has more than doubled in the past week as record Ethereum fees lead some investors to look to layer 2 solutions.

  • CoinGecko data shows OMG tokens have increased 115% from $1.70 to $3.65 in the past seven days – with the price surging by 30% in the past 24 hours.
  • The rally means OMG’s market cap has surged by approximately $275 million since this time last week.
  • OMG’s price has increased by nearly 1,000% since it fell to its all-time low of $0.35 after the Black Thursday crash in March.

  • Denis Vinokourov, research head at crypto exchange BeQuant, told CoinDesk OMG Network was benefitting from a “perfect storm” of industry-wide developments.
  • The craze around DeFi – a subset that has exploded to well over $6 billion – has seen a surge in activity on Ethereum, leading to soaring fees.
  • There are also reports the testnet for Eth 2.0 – a new iteration that would make the blockchain platform much more scalable – crashed last week.
  • As such, investors are beginning to look more closely at layer 2 solutions, he said.
  • Ethereum’s average transaction fees rapidly shot up from under $0.10 in January to nearly $3.40 currently – the first time fees have stayed so consistently high.
