Default [Q] Noobish Questions -> OTG and USB 3.0

Hey there,
Im aware that my question is probably noobish, but does OTG work with USB 3.0?
Im just curious due to some other devices (like my wlan-stick) not working with USB 3.0 so I just wanted to be sure.
I know that there is an app needed to get OTG working on the Nexus 5, but is an external powersource also needed just like on my Huawei Honor 2?

Thanks in Advance, sorry for wasting your time :P

First of all USB 3.0 is compatible downward, do this should work normally, even 3.0 itself would be supported.

An external power source? For what?
If u use a stick there can't even get a power source and if u have a floppy disk with power source, even this have to be used on OTG otherwise it won't work, too.

Hope this answers ur question?!
