How to buy OMG in Belgium
Is OMG a good investment in Belgium?
OMG was released in 2017 with an initial price of $0.53. It rose to $11.38 in September 2017 and started 2018 with a surprise. At the beginning of the year, OMG reached its all-time highest price of $28.35. Although it fell quickly, it was still a wonderful profit for people who had bought this coin one year earlier. 2018 didn’t end well, because OMG's price dropped to $1.25 in December. It also experienced two years of recession in 2019 and 2020. However, it seems that these years were a great time to buy OMG as a long-term investment because in 2021 it rose to $20 and became a profitable investment again. OMG price passed 2022 with almost a stable price and ended the year at $1.02.
