What is origin?
Origin is building the sharing economy of tomorrow. Buyers and sellers will be able to transact without rent-seeking middlemen, lowering transaction fees, promoting free and transparent commerce, and giving early participants in the community a stake in the network.

Origin is working in reputation, arbitration, and trust in marketplaces. Marketplaces built on Origin will be able to easily share (and acquire) users, they had the first implementation of the ERC 725 standard developed by Fabian Vogelsteller, author of the ERC 20 standard and creator of the Mist browser and Web3.
