Origin is a protocol for creating peer-to-peer marketplaces, using the Ethereum blockchain and IPFS.

Discover the sharing economy with Origin Protocol.
Whether you are a freelance photographer, apartment owner, bike-share supplier, or existing sharing economy business, Origin makes it easy to do business on the decentralized web.

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.

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.
