I first heard about the Omi token a few months ago. It was from an esteemed investor I met online. I looked Omi up on CoinGecko and saw the exchanges listing the token and quickly gave up on pursuing it further. Living in the US, we miss out on many opportunities in crypto the rest of the world has (IDOs, certain platforms, exchanges, auctions, etc.). I didn’t think I could purchase Omi tokens so I chose not to spend a lot of time researching the project.

At the beginning of the month, I connected with another American on Telegram and he proceeded to tell me that he’s heavily invested in Omi tokens and the Veve collectibles. “But you are in the US”, I wrote, “I can’t get Omi on any exchanges or Uniswap, Pancakeswap, or anywhere else.” He replied back the token is open to US investors on one exchange: Bitforex. I will share more about how I purchase the token in future parts of the series.

I spoke with this gentleman for a couple of hours. He wanted to know more about Drip and I wanted to learn as much as I could about Omi and Veve. We exchanged information and I was floored by his conviction level. I worked in phone sales for nearly 20 years, and this guy was giving me the perfect pitch to take a closer look at this project.

So now I have an esteemed investor mentioning Omi and another guy who is a lot like me telling me about this project. I download the Veve App (available on Google and Apple store for free) and set up an account in under 5 minutes. I go into the store and see beautiful artworks of Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, Harley Quinn, Iron Man, Elsa, and I’m immediately blown away. I am in disbelief by the content…and the low prices.

How is Veve different from Omi?

Before we go any further, you may be a bit confused because I’m talking about Veve and Omi. Let me take a moment to discuss the difference between the two.

Veve is the platform where collectors, investors, and speculators can buy and sell NFT digital collectibles, comics, and stamps. It’s a free application with over 1 million users worldwide. It’s the fifth highest-grossing app in the Apple app store in the US. Take a look at some of the other names in…
