Origin Protocol is a blockchain platform launched in 2017 that is bringing non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralized finance (DeFi) to the global mainstream. Origin's NFT Launchpad empowers creators to run NFT sales directly to their fans and collectors on their own websites, and is responsible for NFT sales like 3LAU's $11.7M music record-breaking drop and the Charlie Bit My Finger viral video sale that generated global headlines. The company is also the creator of the Origin Dollar (OUSD), the first stablecoin to automatically accrue compelling DeFi yields while being passively held in user wallets. The native token of the entire Origin commerce platform is the Origin Token (OGN).
Origin was founded by serial entrepreneurs, Matthew Liu and Joshua Fraser, and also counts a Paypal co-founder, the first employee at YouTube, and engineering managers at Google and Dropbox amongst its team members .Recently, Origin Protocol partnered with SpaceX’s Inspiration4, the first civilian mission where four crew members took 50 NTFs into space with proceeds benefiting St. Jude’s Children's Research hospital.
