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.

Partners building on Origin

Teams all over the world are building on Origin's protocols, but we're looking for more amazing people to join our mission.

Propy is building their property manager marketplace DApp with Origin Protocol.

DApps built on Origin will be able to use WeTrust’s decentralized insurance protocols to protect users.

CanYa is building their “marketplace of services” with Origin Protocol for the gig economy.

Build your business on Origin

Whether you are a freelance photographer, apartment owner, bikeshare supplier, or existing sharing economy business, Origin makes it easy to do business on the decentralized web. Get in touch to learn more.

It's time to replace rent-seeking middlemen

Harnessing the power of the Ethereum blockchain, listings are managed via a secure and transparent system that acts as a neutral third party. Buyers and sellers share the 20-30% transaction fees that currently go to companies like Uber, Airbnb, Fiverr, and Getaround.


Smart contracts enable secure and reliable payments directly from one party to another

Protocol schemas support hundreds of listing types, including custom verticals

Open and shared data encourages innovation by developers and businesses

Identity verification and reputation data on the blockchain ensures safe, reputable partners
