Origin is powering commerce on the blockchain. The Origin Platform enables the creation of peer-to-peer marketplaces and e-commerce applications. Origin’s technology allows buyers and sellers of goods and services to transact on the distributed, open web. Using the Ethereum blockchain and Interplanetary File System (IPFS), participants can interact in a peer-to-peer fashion, allowing for the purchase of goods and services without traditional intermediaries imposing exorbitant fees and onerous terms.

Matt is a Co-founder at Origin, focusing on product development and business strategy. Prior to Origin, Matt cofounded PriceSlash (acquired by BillShark) and Unicycle Labs. Earlier in his career, Matt was one of the earliest product managers at YouTube, building the company’s first content partner and monetization products. He also served as VP of Product at Qwiki (acquired by Yahoo!) and Bonobos (acquired by Walmart).
Nick is a Senior Engineer at Origin and spearheads Dshop, the decentralized e-commerce initiative that powers the Brave Store. He authored the Origin Marketplace smart contract that processes transactions at the core of the Origin Platform, allowing buyers, sellers, affiliates, and arbitrators to interact via the blockchain, with rules enshrined in code. Originally from the UK where he started his career as a full-stack developer, Nick moved to the San Francisco Bay area in 2010 and Boulder, Colorado in 2014.
