The startup is backed by Ripple, Ripple reportedly gave Omni a sum of $25 million in early 2018 for its white-label service project but it is still unclear if Omni plans to return its raised funds to investors.
Though Omni has not made an official announcement on its closure an anonymous spokesperson of the company told TechCrunch that Omni plans to shut down the platform at the end of the year.
The company was reportedly experiencing difficulties finding customers earlier in the year and was in conversation with Coinbase about hiring the Omni engineering team in October though what the team would be working on was not made clear. Coinbase will reportedly be hiring about 10 of Omni’s engineers.
