About OpenOrigins.

Creating the Global Trust Layer for all content.
 

At OpenOrigins, we believe that the lack of a provenance infrastructure is threatening to jeopardise the validity of discourse over the Internet.

We envision that OpenOrigins' Global Trust Layer can help alleviate this issue. In order to meet this ambitious goal, we are developing cutting-edge tools across cryptography, distributed systems, and trusted execution environments.
