Origin can be defined as an open-source platform that enables the creation of peer-to-peer marketplaces alongside e-commerce applications. It initially targeted the global sharing economy with the attempt of enabling buyers and sellers of fractional use goods and services to transact on the distributed and open web.

Through implementing the Ethereum blockchain as well as interplanetary File System (IPFS) the platform and its community have the ability to interact in a peer-to-peer method which allows for the creation as well as bookings of services and goods without a traditional intermediary.

This protocol in turn allows for the creation of a decentralized setting where both the buyers as well as the sellers can connect, check for available listings, write reviews, and perform other actions. This allows for an easier process of trading assets, and it addresses some of the issues of extant online markets. The issues it tackles are the unfair transaction fees, lack of transparency, and more specifically, lack of any innovation alongside the centralization issues. This means that the Origin Protocol creates a decentralized and incentivized environment, where the buyers, as well as sellers, can facilitate their business.

The OGN Token Explained

The OGN token is the native utility token that is used to power the Origin Platform. It is used to enable incentive systems, payments, and future staking as well as governance mechanisms.

Features of Origin Protocol

The main goal of the Origin Protocol is to promote an open as well as free exchange of services. It builds peer-to-peer marketplaces and enables true peer-peer commerce.

In terms of the features implemented within it, you have lower fees as a starting point. Airbnb for example charges hosts from 3 to 14% in fees, while Uber’s 25% commission rate can go higher when you factor in additional fees. Once these middlemen are removed, buyers, as well as sellers, save a lot of money. You also get increased access, which means that these markets become accessible to everyone, even the unbanked, and anyone can access the marketplace just by using their phones. People have better incentives due to the fact that the platform rewards behavior that contributes to its growth through referring new users, building applications, and a safety infrastructure among other things. Last but not least it has censorship resilience, which means that it eliminates single points of failure through the process of building pools for people to transact with each other in a trustless and distributed way.
