There have been recent reports of scam sites starting to popup which aim to imitate Omniwallet in an attempt scam people out of their wallet information. Please remember Omniwallet’s official url is https://www.omniwallet.org . To prevent loss, always double check the url of the page you are visiting before attempting to login to your wallet. Additionally we urge users to ensure they have setup/enabled a compatible MFA device on their wallet. As a final note/recap, we recently released the updated Omni Core Integration Guide . If you are looking to integrate Omni Core into your platform this should be your first stop for information.

General backend stability improvements and bug fixes.
Minor performance / ui updates and bug fixes.
Version 0.3.1 is in final release prep. We are finalizing release notes and verifying builds. We expect to announce the general release within the next 2 weeks. In addition to some general stability and performance improvements this release adds some new rpc calls which support local wallet balances and funded sending. Funded sending (a more in depth article to follow) allows the use of an additional address to help cover the extra BTC needed when sending an Omni Protocol transaction. In order to validate with the bitcoin blockchain the original sending address will still need at least one utxo to contribute to the transaction but now the bulk of the network/mining fee’s can be paid from a separate address.

Omni Core Integration Guide Now Available
With the growing popularity and increasing use of the Omni Protocol and the asset/tokens created there within, we have put together the following Integration Guide.
The primary goal is to provide a starting point for service providers/exchanges/wallet operators looking to incorporate the Omni Protocol into their platform. While this will not cover every single use case or integration option it should cover the majority and provide a good starting point for platform operators/maintainers on where to get started.
