ONAM's Solutions

Security – Along with DDoS mitigation, 2FA solutions, and anti-phishing solutions, ONAM have their own “Advanced Threat Prevention, Intrusion Detection, and Trade Surveillance systems”. These systems are driven by machine learning to identify irregular activity before it negatively affects user accounts. These systems are also all secured by encrypted databases.
Quarterly 3rd party audits are also a key part of ONAM's security obligation to its clients.

ScalabilityONAM's platform outperforms all the competition in terms of transactions per second and latencies. ONAM handles “10 million transactions per second with latencies as low as 40 nanoseconds.”

TransparencyONAM's Real-Time Market Surveillance and Compliance system surveys the ONAM network for irregular trading activities. Various characteristics and trade-types are closely monitored in order to generate Suspicious Activity Reports for the system’s regulators. All of these features make Market Manipulation almost impossible.

Customer SupportONAM aims to offer 24/7/365 live customer support via chats in multiple languages. Common issues will be addressed within 15 minutes via support ticket system. Phone support will be offered within the first 6 months of launch as well.

LiquidityONAM will attract large market makers, miners, and volume traders to participate in their network. High slippage and market manipulation issues will be fought off by enlisting book orders from multiple exchanges.

Compliance – The SEC has taken the stance that almost all token issues are security issues. This has resulted in multiple subpoenas to various companies launching ICOs. Licenses are necessary for initiating public offerings and ONAM's top legal representatives are all informed on the latest positions regarding SEC and its view on ICO activities.

ONAM vs Current Market

ONAM aims to be the most capable and price efficient exchange on the market. In order to accomplish this, they are ensuring that traders have all the tools they need. The chart below exemplifies the feature different between ONAM and some top exchanges, as well as the difference in fees.

ONAM Use Case: The Composite Index Fund

Ben is an old-fashioned value investor who heard about Bitcoin when it was pennies but refused to buy in because of his experience in the legacy financial system. For conservative reasons, Ben missed out on the Bitcoin boom.

However, the ICO market was now born and new opportunities arose where others had passed.

Ben’s philosophy had been based on a prudent split between stocks and bonds to ensure that his net worth always grew whilst he did not miss exposure to lucrative new technologies and industries. Bitcoin, having been too radical for him to invest in originally, was now much more expensive. Ben also knew the dust was yet to settle on the industry as a whole, and wanted to speculate on the bullishness of the climate as well as on the prospects of already-incumbent protocols such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Most of Ben’s stock fund was put into composite indexes which split among all the best performers of an entire market he chose. Unfortunately, his account and Berkshire Hathaway did not have access to the the ICO market for lack of technical experience. Not being able to interface with any blockchains, Ben was almost resigned to not buy any positions in some of the tested blockchain projects like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and NEO. Managing the technology aspect would have proved problematic for Ben on its own. Multiple accounts and passwords are cumbersome to track and costly to lose.

Having all but given up, Ben finds ONAM. ONAM offers Ben all the advanced, mainstream, options of any sophisticated trading house. ONAM also secures the funds Ben has purchased in optimal “cold-storage” which means the public keys are all generated offline before a private key has ever been combined to produce a hash with them; this makes them extra secure. They have multi-signature functionality at Ben’s discretion, and physical copies of these passwords will be kept in bank-grade vaults.

Now Ben can log onto his platform and super simply grab a premade composite index of all the major players in the market and own some of their cryptocurrency. He can use their news letter to make his own smaller index if he likes.

ONAM State-of-the-Art Security and Compliance

Enterprise-Grade Security – ONAM never stores passwords, encrypts sensitive data before submitting it to its database

Anti-Market Manipulation (AMM) – ONAM's real-time market surveillance, supervision, and compliance system is powered by machine learning and is always operation

Quarterly Audits – ONAM's non-technical layer of defense, auditing is a philosophical commitment of the company as well as a form of mandatory compliance that keeps ONAM to performing best practices

BitGO Partnership – In order to offer custodian services to big institutional investors, ONAM has teamed up with BitGO, “the market leader in institutional-grade cryptocurrency investment services.”
· Custodian services include: institutional-grade policy controls, and 100% cold storage with multi-signature in bank grade vaults for more than 75 cryptocurrencies

Employee Background Checks and Compliance Training – All employees will meet a standard that matches the security and standing of ONAM and its vision


Many projects in the Blockchain/ICO space are in the business of reinventing the wheel.

ONAM is different in that the simply want to innovate on a product that is already tried and tested: crypto-currency exchanges. ONAM is concerned with the latest technical and foundational technologies to maximize the security and performance of the platform for the benefit of its users.
