Origin For Developers

Origin is empowering developers to build decentralized marketplaces on the blockchain, which will allow buyers and sellers to meet and transact without requiring any trusted intermediaries. Achieving this visionary goal requires contributions from a growing community of developers; And we need your help.

What We Are Building

Origin.js - a library of Javascript code and Ethereum smart contracts which allow anyone to create decentralized marketplaces by calling simple API methods

Origin DApp - an example decentralized application that shows how easy it is to create and purchase listings, leave reviews, check identity, and more

Origin Bridge Server - an endpoint enabling functionality that is either impossible or impractical to do directly on-chain, such as indexing, identity attestations, and notifications
