What is Origin?
Origin enables decentralized commerce through an open-source platform that enables the creation of peer-to-peer marketplaces and e-commerce applications. Using the Ethereum blockchain and Interplanetary File System (IPFS), the platform and its community participants can interact in a peer-to-peer fashion, enabling commerce transactions without traditional intermediaries. Origin has raised more than $38.1M to date from leading investors, including Pantera Capital, Blockchain.com, and Foundation Capital.
Origin Token (OGN)
The Origin Token (OGN) is a utility token that serves multiple purposes in ensuring the network’s health and growth. OGN is a multi-purpose incentive token that drives behavior for end-users, developers, marketplace operators, and other ecosystem participants. In addition, OGN is a medium-of-exchange token that can be used for payments between buyers and sellers on the platform. It is intended that OGN will serve as a critical piece in the future governance of the network.
