The sharing economy without intermediaries

Origin is a protocol for creating sharing economy marketplaces
using the Ethereum blockchain and IPFS

The Origin platform

We empower developers and businesses to build decentralized marketplaces on the blockchain. Our protocol makes it easy to create and manage listings for the fractional usage of assets and services. Buyers and sellers can discover each other, browse listings, make bookings, leave ratings and reviews, and much more.
