Orion is an interoperational blockchain platform that provides a set of products and services, that combine the most advanced solutions of the blockchain industry to date, including the Decentralized Exchange (DEX) based on atomic swaps technology, Decentralized Brokerage with staking mechanisms, Decentralized Finance (DeFi) platform, B2B services and more. The protocol positions itself as a powerful but user-friendly gateway to the cryptocurrency markets.
The key to Orion’s value is its built-in liquidity aggregator, which automatically allows its users to access multiple exchanges in order to obtain the best spot price for any supported cryptocurrency, embodying the best features of both centralized and decentralized exchanges. High order execution time and spread reduction coupled with a straightforward user interface makes Orion an attractive platform for people both interested in brokerages with low fees, seamless interexchange trading, using arbitrage, and much more.
The platform is fueled by the native utility token (ORN), which will be hosted on the Ethereum platform. The token will be used to pay for trading fees, receive staking rewards, vote for the Broker of your choice, pay for services such as premium features (e.g. margin trading), and by brokers to stake in the Decentralized Brokerage.
Rather than existing only in demo or MVP form, Orion’s platform is in working beta and can already be used to buy and sell several major cryptocurrencies. A significant amount of money and developer hours have already been devoted to the platform, and the team is strongly motivated to complete and enhance it further.
