Introduced in 2017 by Josh Fraser and Matt Liu, Origin Protocol is a decentralised platform for P2P commerce. Users are able to bargain products and services with the help of Origin’s online marketplace and partner applications. Marketplace representatives can build their own peer-to-peer platforms that align with Origin’s advanced standards of commerce. OGN, the Origin’s native token, is a crucial element of the Origin ecosystem. It is used as an enticement mechanism to support the growth and development of the platform while providing the Origin community with stakes in the network.
