Thursday 04 March 2021, 5:00 PM AEST - 1 month ago

Blockchain-powered commerce project Origin Protocol has created the OGN token (nicknamed the “Origin Dollar”) which can be staked to earn up to a 25% yield.

Using the OUSD platform you can select from 3 options OGN staking options, which you will be able to claim your OGN principal plus interest at the end of the staking period.

  1. 30 days lock-up earning 7.5% APY
  2. 90 days lock-up earning 12.5% APY
  3. 365 days lock-up earning 25% APY

In order to participate you need to use a DeFi wallet to connect and deposit your funds which will then be secured using an Ethereum smart contract. See the OGN token details which include supply and unlock schedule. Yield-generating DeFi products are brand-new and you should read the risks involved before participating.

Dshop: Blockchain-powered Online Commerce

Along with the stablecoin, Origin also introduced a new service called Dshop. It’s an e-commerce platform that can be used to create a free online store, harnessing the power of a decentralized platform and allowing customers to pay in cryptocurrencies.
