OriginTrail is an ecosystem dedicated to making supply chains work – through championing standards supporting a universal data exchange (interoperability), connecting rather than replacing legacy IT systems (interconnectivity) and ensuring data immutability by utilizing the blockchain technology (integrity).

OriginTrail's Origin

The first version of the OriginTrail solution is proven and currently deployed in the food industry.  The newest version of this technology is an open source protocol that allows businesses to seamlessly exchange data with efficiency and integrity. One of the biggest problems in our “data as oil” age is that sharing proprietary or confidential information among parties with absolute trust is very difficult. OriginTrail is a neutral, scalable, open source protocol with decentralized nodes using an off-chain technology stack. It interfaces with legacy systems as well as other blockchains (permissioned and permissionless). Data creators can set the data to be public or private, have the data expire after a certain number of weeks/years, or have that data (or parts of data) shared only with appropriate parties. Trust between parties is achieved through the use of the OriginTrail Decentralized Network (ODN).

The Decentralized Knowledge Graph (DKG)

Querying the OriginTrail DKG enables finding all available (connected) information on a particular supply chain object in a matter of seconds, spanning any number of datasets with any structure, originating from different IT systems, easily verifying the data provenance and integrity.

Supply Chain Singularity

OT-JSON (A proprietorially modified version of JSON-LD) dataset is the main structure of objects that are transferred in the OriginTrail network. The OriginTrail protocol fully supports the GS1 EPCIS 1.2 and CBV standards in the protocol data structure. This ensures full compliance and integration with legacy systems like Excel Spreadsheets. OriginTrail will also support the upcoming EPCIS 2.0 standard, which is not yet ratified by the organization. The OriginTrail protocol also supports the Web of Things (W3C) recommended standard.

OriginTrail is uniquely positioned to revolutionize the Global Supply Chain with it’s once in a lifetime technology. The entire global supply chain runs on standards developed by the GS1 organization. OriginTrail/TraceLabs has been a member of GS1 since 2018 and have since entered into an official partnership which gives them access to the development of supply chain standards and their implementation. With GS1’s support alongside OriginTrail’s Decentralized Knowledge Graph, GS1 Standards of the future will allow for interoperability between different systems and supply chain architectures across the globe.

Being an open-source, decentralised protocol, based on open global standards, neutrality is crucial for the OriginTrail ecosystem as it prevents vendor lock-ins, ensures integrity, and effectively breaks data silos. Neutrality means adopting co-creation principles and working with other blockchain ecosystems and solutions builders even as they may be competing in the same market on the application level. The biggest catalyst for ODN adoption is the development of the TraceLabs-built Network Operating System (nOS). nOS allows for easy existing ERP integrations, consensus checks for data discrepancies among partners, supply chain/track-and-trace applications, and data/sourcing provenance. TraceLabs estimates that nOS decreases implementation time and deployment costs by 10-fold.

$TRAC Tokenomics

Data creators and data holders must have TRAC staked in their nodes to take part in the ODN. More TRAC staked in nodes means more data jobs can be published or held.

Data creators publish data jobs on the ODN using TRAC to compensate 3+ data holding nodes for their time and resources. The exact value of TRAC for each data job is dependent on market forces, but parameters like job length and data size affect it. This TRAC is locked in a smart contract until the job’s completion.

To prevent data tampering and as a promise to hold data for a set period of time, TRAC from a data holder’s stake is also locked via smart contract for the length of the job. Failure to provide data leads to loss of this staked TRAC to the data creator. Upon completion of the terms of the job, the data holder earns back their original stake AND the TRAC staked by the data creator.

Note that data holding nodes are not like a typical crypto “masternode.” They actively accept and provide data and are more akin to servers; most (all?) people run them on VPS providers due to the potential to lose TRAC staked (by failing to provide data if there is downtime). Some knowledge of a Linux environment is essential. Due to the OriginTrail’s decentralized nature, data holding nodes are open to anyone with 3000+ TRAC.

The OriginTrail Token economics has been well thought throughBecause of this, the price of a TRAC token will be well correlated to the usage of the OriginTrail Decentralized Network. TRAC token scarcity (via utility) is subject to a “triple effect” as described in the 2019 OriginTrail Vision Paper:
