OGY Token (OGY/USDT – Trade it Here) is the native token of the ORIGYN Foundation, which provides the utility of access to the platform where ORIGYN certificates are minted, referenced and transacted. ORIGYN is a Swiss Foundation that brings NFTs to life with biometric data and unique ownership experiences to power brands, creators, artists, marketplaces, consumers and industries with guaranteed certificates of authenticity. This article explores the core features, related projects in the ecosystem, and overall tokenomics of OGY (plus ways of how buy and earn OGY on MEXC).
Core Features of ORIGYN Foundation
OGY is the principal mechanism for the creation of ORIGYN certificates of authenticity and is required to interact with the platform. Specifically, the OGY token provides the utility of access to a platform where ORIGYN Certificates are minted, referenced and transacted. The ORIGYN Certificate is a Digital Twin NFT of the unique item, and every new object (e.g., watch, bag, artwork, etc.) is paired with this newly minted Digital Twin NFT during the authentication process. OGY tokens fuel the lifespan of each Certificate.
- ORIGYN has an on-chain governance system where token holders collectively vote on proposals. Token holders are able to stake their OGY tokens to gain voting power. Staking involves locking OGY tokens in the ORIGYN Governance Canister (OGC) to support the security and operations of the ORIGYN network.
- The voting power is linearly proportional to the number of tokens staked. Tokens that are locked due to vesting are treated like staked tokens until they are removed by the owner and reallocated. Therefore, tokens with lockup periods of over or equal to 12 months will generate voting power.
- Voting Power = Amount of staked OGY with a lockup period >= 1 year
- To prevent short-sighted voting outcomes, the minimum lockup period is set at one year. That is to say, tokens with lockup periods of at least one year have the same voting power. Those with lockup periods less than one year have no voting power.

There is a total supply of 10 billion OGY tokens. At the time of writing, the ORIGYN Foundation token has a fully diluted market cap estimated at $264,913,884. Tokens are split roughly into thirds between fundraising, foundation and team/partners for the following distribution:

New tokens are minted to reward staking, thus rendering OGY an inflationary token. Inflation is dynamically adjusted between 2%-20% to achieve a 60%-80% staking ratio.
In order to counteract inflation, ORIGYN is committed to a deflationary model and will commit proceeds from operations to regularly collect and burn OGY tokens.
