Enter the world of OriginTrail, a gateway to fresh opportunities on Ethereum, Polygon, and Gnosis.
By merging knowledge graph and blockchain technologies, OriginTrail empowers both web2 and web3 enterprises to harness on-chain data and infrastructure, positioning them for the emerging era of Artificial Intelligence.
Established in 2013, during the formative years of blockchain and decentralized finance, OriginTrail was founded by Tomaž Levak (CEO), Žiga Drev (COO), and Branimir Rakić (CTO).
OriginTrail functions as a layer 2 scaling solution, seamlessly operating across the multiple blockchains mentioned above.
But it doesn't stop there. The OriginTrail Parachain can seamlessly integrate into Polkadot's layer 0, evolving into a DKG-specific layer 1 blockchain.
OriginTrail’s utility covers many use cases:
Since its inception, the OriginTrail protocol has emerged as a prominent figure within the developer community, garnering significant attention. In fact, in 2020, it secured support from the European Union's Horizon program, and in 2021, it forged a partnership with the World Health Organization.
The OriginTrail team has played a pivotal role in bridging the divide between blockchain and off-chain organizations, effectively addressing the interoperability challenges that initially surfaced.
OriginTrail boasts its very own cryptocurrency called TRAC. TRAC plays a pivotal role within the OriginTrail blockchain ecosystem, fueling all DKG operations and incentivizing protocol activities.
The good news is that TRAC is incredibly accessible. You can securely store your tokens in any EVM-compatible wallet, such as Metamask, or opt for hardware wallets to add an extra layer of security.
TRAC achieved remarkable success back in 2017 when it was launched through an initial coin offering (ICO). Investors enthusiastically embraced the project, contributing a total of $22.5 million in funding.
It can be used for the following things:
As previously mentioned, the OriginTrail Parachain has recently introduced its own dedicated token, known as the OriginTrail Parachain Token (OTP).
As part of a reward system for locking up both DOT and TRAC tokens, OTP is distributed to users during a process referred to as a genesis event. OTP serves various essential functions, including staking, governance participation, and covering fees associated with activities on the parachain.
