Origin Protocol is a network that allows market participants to share goods and services through peer-to-peer (P2P) networks.

Basic Information

Launched in 2017, Origin Protocol aims to create an extensive online marketplace leveraging the Ethereum (ETH) Blockchain and Interplanetary File System (IPFS) in order to eliminate the need for middlemen. The protocol allows for the creation of a decentralized setting where both buyers and sellers can connect, check for available listings, write reviews and perform many other actions. With this, fractional usage of assets can be traded more easily. Origin Protocol addresses the fundamental issues of extant online markets, such as unfair transaction fees, lack of transparency, less drive for innovation and centralization issues. The protocol creates a decentralised and incentivised environment for buyers and sellers to facilitate business. See more
