Vision:  Original protocol (Origin) is an open source  set of protocols which main goal is to enable the sharing economy without intermediaries using Ethereum blockchain and IPFS (InterPlanetary FIle System). To make a long story short – businesses can build a decentralised marketplaces on the blockchain.  It should give a live to a different type of marketplaces. New marketplaces will be far more resilient to censorship and regulations. Original protocol commerce network will transfer / create financial value from large corporations to individuals buyers and sellers. That means that everyone will be able to offer services, products and everyone will be able to buy it without any intermediaries.

Product: Origin platform will let any business to list it service or product and a great thing that they will let users to make transactions not only with Origin token, but with Ethereum and fiat currencies, that makes platform more friendly to other users who are not familiar with cryptocurrencies. Origin protocol have working demo version on testnet where everyone can try platform with Test Ethereum. Origin token have proven partnership deal with Bee token, WeTrust and over 30 other project, which is a big advantage over other competitors and it makes Origin attractive for big investors. On the other hand, this project have a lot of competitors not only in decentralised world. Dirstrict 0x, Odyssey, ShareRing and etc.., to overtake them this project needs to offer something special or launch platform before any other competitor, but  the team has stated that they are awaiting major improvements in  Ethereum and IPFS before launching the protocol, so this statement leaves a lot of doubts if they can challenge their competitors. It’s worth to mention that Origin protocol have raised 3 millions USD from Pantera Capital

Team: Origin protocol team consists of 16 team members and 4 advisors. Core team members have a stunning work experience both in business and IT sectors while some of extend team members seems to be new in this market. Josh and Mathew – cofounders have also been co founders of other tech companies which were acquired by well-known companies, these guys knows how to make business. It’s worth mention that advisory board which includes Joey Krug and Paul Veradittakit from Pantera Capital and Addison who previously worked with the Ethereum Foundation  and Melody who was strategic advisor to Gifto and Appcoins looks really attractive to investors as they always seek for solid advisory board.

Token structure:  Origin protocol (Origin) is an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token, which will beused to create listings on the platform and as a one of option of payment. Also, token will serve in platform for security and governance.  The exact date and details of the Origin presale have not yet been announced so we can’t tell anything more about Token metrics.
