Project Profile

Origin is developing a platform that supports the creation of decentralized marketplaces, with an initial focus on the sharing economy. Origin aims to enable efficiencies, relative to existing marketplaces, in the absence of traditional intermediaries. The platform’s maiden peer-to-peer marketplace dApp is an Origin contribution built in HTML and Javascript that enables users to, within their browser, create simple listings and sale offerings in different sharing economy vertices. Origin anticipates that the developer community will utilize libraries and protocols demonstrated in the original Origin dApp’s technology stack, and plans on encouraging developer engagement so as to attract a broader pool of contributors than just those versed in Solidity, Ethereum’s smart contract scripting language. Several open-source protocols will help define the decentralized marketplace, including those for user identity, reputation, and listing creation.

Origin was co-founded by Josh Fraser and Matthew Liu, who have previously founded companies such as Priceslash, Unicycle Labs, EventVue, Torbit, and Forage. The team explicitly anticipates that scalability enhancing developments will enable Ethereum to scale and help make the Origin platform attractive to developers and users. Contributing to developer libraries whilst working on Origin could go some distance to lower the barriers to entry for dApp development generally.

Project Details

The Origin Protocol only pushes crucial transactional information to the Ethereum blockchain. Other data relating to transactions can be stored on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a decentralized data storage network, including descriptions and repetitional information, thereby reducing expensive on-chain storage costs. Functionality for searching blockchains, due to significant technological barriers, is not currently decentralized. The Origin Protocol will initially support centrally hosted and run search algorithms, which are considerably more efficient. To render the entire catalog of listings searchable to users in the browser, the Origin dApp connects to a ‘bridge’ server that presents the information significantly faster than searching the full chain or distributed storage network. Speeding up access to files by storing them in an immediately accessible trusted server trades off on ensuring security through storing such files in the off-chain process.

Origin progressed from mainnet beta to a full V1.0 release in January 2020 and in February announced that Samsung had decided to add its marketplace application to the Samsung blockchain wallet, with Origin hoping that the integration will lead to the mass onboarding of new users.

Asset Details

The Origin token, OGN, is an ERC20 token issued on the Ethereum network. OGN has three principal functions; rewards, payments, and commissions, all three of which are confined to use within the marketplace dApp. By performing actions such as verifying one's profile or referring friends, users can earn OGN. In an attempt to bootstrap its usage in payments, Origin has started by integrating the token in its dApp, allowing end-users to buy and sell listings with OGN while sellers who accept the token are entitled to enhanced rewards. Finally, entities such as developers and owners of marketplaces can earn OGN through a commission by promoting or helping sellers.
