Origin is the protocol behind Origin Dollar (OUSD), a stablecoin that earns a yield while it's still in your wallet. OUSD is designed to passively accrue interest while simply being held within users' wallets.
This is made possible thanks to its elastic supply, which means OUSD returns are distributed as additional units of OUSD. Supply rebasing happens multiple times per day and doesn't cost holders any gas fees. It can be thought of as automated yield farming in the form of a stablecoin.
