Every month, the Origin team publishes a monthly update to our token holders and broader community. Welcome to the special December 2021 Year-in-Review edition. We are eager to hear feedback and suggestions from our community. Please email [email protected] for support requests and [email protected] for general inquiries/comments. Please email [email protected] if you are a creator looking to launch NFTs on Origin.


The OUSD and OGN holder community are among the most active participants in Curve and Convex governance as well. We have also submitted a proposal for OUSD and OGN to be included as collateral assets for minting DAI on MakerDAO. We are in active discussion with the top protocols and platforms in DeFi to strengthen our place in the wider ecosystem. OUSD has already been integrated into Curve, Convex, Yearn Finance, APY.Finance, Nexus Mutual, InsurAce, and other leading DeFi platforms this year.

December has been a busy month for Origin Story. We opened up Story for beta testing and announced two incredible NFT launches by Orbseer and 888 Inner Circle with BT. Nearly a thousand creators have signed up to beta test Story and we have also surpassed over 17,000 total users.

Origin Story

2021 has been an incredible year for Story. We broke records with the largest primary sale of a music NFT collection ever at nearly $12 million. We created international headlines by auctioning off one of the most iconic videos ever on YouTube as an NFT. We set a record for selling a cask of whisky with a proof-of-ownership NFT for over $2 million. We have worked with top creators like Don Diablo, KSHMR, Trevor Jones, Jake Paul, Michael Yamashita, and more. The NFT industry experienced explosive growth in 2021. Things look even better for 2022 and we are in a prime position to capture much of the value generated by NFTs next year.

Meet Origin Story, a record-breaking NFT platform built by Origin Protocol.

Circulating supply is currently at 397M compared to a projected 482M tokens. The circulating supply number includes the millions of OGN staked in our staking program, reducing the actual float further. There is only one remaining investor unlock which is scheduled for February. After this there will be no more tokens distributed to investors, reducing potential sell pressure on OGN.
