Origin is a sharing economy marketplace and set of protocols that enables buyers and sellers of fractional use goods and services (car-sharing, service-based tasks, home-sharing, etc.) to transact on the distributed, open web. Using the Ethereum blockchain and Interplanetary File System (IPFS), the platform and community are decentralized, allowing for the creation and booking of services and goods without traditional intermediaries.
Origin is specifically building a large-scale commerce network that:
For several years now, blockchain innovators and investors have called for teams to build decentralized versions of existing sharing economy businesses and create an even more efficient way to conduct Internet commerce. However, much of the infrastructure and plumbing to build distributed marketplace apps does not yet exist. Shortcomings of existing marketplaces:
Main vision is to promote the open and free exchange of services on the decentralized web. To do this, we need to build a platform that replicates much, if not all, of the functionality of third-party intermediaries on the blockchain and other distributed systems. This is an ambitious goal and a technically difficult engineering challenge. We also need to build a rich ecosystem of marketplace buyers and suppliers from the ground up, competing with the network effects of established businesses in a safe, scalable way. This is an intimidating business, marketing, and operations challenge.
The platform will launch with three major components to address these respective challenges:
