Meet Origin's DeFi Tokens

These docs are intended to explain how Origin DeFi's OTokens work and introduce you to the value of the governance token, OGV. Besides communicating both the potential risks and benefits, these docs seek to provide a guide for developers who wish to contribute to our codebase or integrate these coins into their products. Here are a few ways for you to dive in and get started.

Mint, redeem or swap using the dapps

The Origin Dollar dapp and Origin Ether dapp will intelligently route your transaction to get you the best rate, whether that's from an AMM or minting from the vault.

The OUSD dapp and OETH dapp allow anyone to buy or sell using a Web3-enabled cryptocurrency wallet like Metamask, Ledger, or Gnosis Safe. This is the native way to get OUSD or OETH, which is desirable if you want a large amount of capital that could risk moving the market on other exchanges. The dapp will intelligently decide whether to mint or redeem using the vault or help you complete the trade on whichever AMM currently offers the best rate.

Decentralized Exchanges

Origin DeFi's coins are currently available on the following decentralized exchanges. These are listed here for reference only. We recommend using these dapps to ensure you always get the best rate.

Centralized Exchanges

Origin DeFi's coins are currently available on the following centralized exchanges. Be sure to check on how they are handling the yield that is being generated by the protocol. Depending on the exchange, there may be additional steps you need to take to participate in the yield while it's being held in their custody.

We're continuing to work on making all of our tokens available on additional centralized exchanges.

Adding Origin's Tokens to Your Wallet

If your OTokens do not automatically show up in your wallet, you should be able to add it manually using the addresses above. If you plan to store your OUSD or OETH in a multi-sig wallet, be sure to opt-in to receive yield. We want to have our coins supported by as many wallets as possible and included on all the various lists of well-known tokens. We would greatly appreciate any help you can offer in this area.

Integrating OUSD and OETH

Origin DeFi's OTokens are rebasing tokens and may require custom integration work for some applications to support them. In particular, it is important for developers to understand how our elastic supply works, as this can easily cause unexpected behavior.

If you are a wallet provider or crypto exchange that is interested in supporting OUSD or OETH, please refer to the following guides:
