Please note that the current OSM is an alpha release. We are collating user feedback for priority implementation on the next release.

Buy ODN

In future, Obsidian (ODN) coins may be required for premium OSM services. ODN can be bought on digital currency exchanges. You can stake your ODN in an Obsidian wallet and earn additional ODN, in a similar way to earning interest on your money in a traditional bank account.

About Obsidian

Obsidian is a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain running since 2017.

Improvements across all things Obsidian are being worked on, and feedback is highly encouraged. We seek further collaboration from developers, organizations and blockchains.

Proof of Stake

Staking is a process which ODN holders can easily implement in an official Obsidian wallet, and is a method used by proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains to secure the network.

In very simple terms, staking can be thought of in a similar way to mining, in that staking periodically generates coins as a reward to the wallet, (also known as a node), that is staking.

Low power and cost

You do not need a supercomputer or specialist graphics card to stake Obsidian coins. In fact, you can stake ODN on a low-cost Raspberry Pi. A very small amount of energy is required to facilitate staking Obsidian coins.

ODN rewards

The more ODN you hold in your wallet, the more staking rewards you will earn. It does not matter how powerful your machine is.
