2021 is almost here. Having hit every milestone on our 2020 roadmap to date, we’re excited to announce our ambitious plans for the rest of the quarter and the year ahead.
Orion Collateral Optimization: Pilot Phase Live
Lending platforms require collateral. In the event that collateral for a loan decreases in value and hits its predetermined strike price for liquidation, immediate liquidation at the best price would be required to prevent the collateral from going under the value of the underlying loan. Orion Protocol’s liquidity APIs will allow for streamlined liquidation of assets across any exchange in the market. This will allow for the transaction of large quantities of assets strategically without the associated risks, allowing for the preservation of token value on the secondary market.
Pilot phase is currently live, with Bonded Finance our first integration.
Orion Liquidity Mining Program: Full Launch Live
Orion Protocol has launched a liquidity provider program on Uniswap to provide a decentralized alternative to its existing multi-exchange pre-staking initiative. The program will reward ORN Liquidity Providers (LPs) on Uniswap with up to 150,000 ORN per month for ORN/ETH. This reward amount will be distributed proportionally to the amount of liquidity each person provides, therefore the APR per person will depend on how many LPs participate.
The current APR at the time of publication is 136%, with over $4.6 million staked.
Orion Wallet Swap SDK: Pilot Phase Live
With traders increasingly storing their assets in wallets, why not remove any friction and allow decentralized trading of assets directly from users' wallet of choice? Orion Wallet Swap SDK allows users of third party crypto wallets the ability to access Orion’s liquidity via a swap widget directly integrated within the wallet’s interface. Wallet users will be able to swap crypto without leaving their wallet of choice, using liquidity of exchanges without the need for any exchange accounts. This will allow for the least slippage of any solution in market.
Pilot phase will be live shortly, with more information and key pilot partners to be announced.
Orion Terminal: Public Main Net Phase One Launch
Orion Terminal is the first gateway to the entire crypto market: aggregating the liquidity of every centralized exchange, decentralized exchange, and swap pool into one decentralized platform. After rigorous testing to a closed group of brokers, the first phase of Orion Terminal will be live on December 15th at 2pm UTC.
Access to the first phase of the terminal will be prioritized based on share ranking through a referral scheme live now. Take part here.
Orion Oracle: Pilot Phase Launch
DeFi projects have been regularly exploited due to inefficiencies in price oracles. Orion Oracle enables the market-leading price oracle that is resilient to price manipulation due to price derivation from every order book in the market.
Pilot phase will be live shortly, with key pilot partners to be announced.
Orion Enterprise Trade Widget: Pilot Phase Live
Even non-crypto companies see that blockchain is the future, but the issue is the friction caused when getting a token to enterprise companies in order to pay for your project’s services. Orion Enterprise Widget acts as a middle layer between crypto projects with utility tokens and all available liquidity of the token on the markets, eliminating the barrier between token and client.
Pilot phase will be live this quarter, with key pilot partners to be announced.
Orion Terminal: Public Main Net Full Launch
Platform updates will be continually rolled out over the month following the phase one launch of Orion Terminal. Additional features to be added to the terminal though partners include leveraged ETFs, derivatives, contract trading, NFTs, and staking of any digital asset type.
Full public launch of Orion Terminal's main net is set for Q1.
ORN Staking: Internal Staking Live
Delegated Proof of Broker (DPoB) is the staking model that underpins Orion's ecosystem, built on a network of brokers and stakers fulfilling every function on the protocol with our native ORN token at its core. Brokers are chosen to execute trades based on how much ORN, Orion’s native token, they stake in the Decentralized Brokerage. Brokers receive a portion of fees from each trade they execute. Non-Broker Stakers stake ORN to ‘vote’ for their choice of Broker based on the variable reward share offered. Brokers are incentivized to offer attractive rates to Non-Broker Stakers to grow their stake, increasing their chance of being chosen.
Orion Protocol's internal staking program will be live on the full public launch of the terminal.

Orion Liquidity Pool: Official Launch
Orion Protocol is currently developing the world’s largest liquidity pool, composed of assets from all major third party wallets.

More information to come. Official Launch of Orion Liquidity Pool will occur in early Q2.
Orion Margin + Lending: Test Net Live

Orion users will be able to earn passive income on assets by lending their assets in our decentralized margin trading solution.
Orion Liquidity Boost Plugin: Pilot Phase Live
Having low volume can doom an exchange from day one, regardless of the cost, development hours, and business development that went into building it. Orion Liquidity Boost Plugin provides exchanges immediate access to the liquidity and volume of all exchanges in the market.
