Origin is backed by some of the most incredible people in the entire crypto space. Joey Krug co-founded Augur, the first Ethereum ICO, and is the co-investment officer at Pantera Capital, one of the earliest crypto funds. We are proud to have Joey as an advisor and Pantera as our lead investor. Check out our interview of Joey below, part of Origin’s video testimonial series.

Joey talks about the problems with existing so-called peer-to-peer marketplaces and how Origin, powered by blockchain technology, can offer an alternative vision for the world where users are not unnecessarily taken advantage of. He also discusses why Pantera Capital decided to back Origin after their first meeting with the Origin team.
