One protocol. Eighteen revenue streams.

You’ve likely heard about our ever-growing number of revenue streams. But what are these revenue streams? And what do they mean for you?

From inception, we’ve paid close attention to our predecessors, and identified one of the major causes of failure as lack of substantial revenue streams: focusing on one solution, one product, and one audience.

But we’re here to build a sustainable future of DeFi. As such, we’ve developed seventeen revenue streams across over a dozen solutions for traders, crypto projects, blockchains, and exchanges - each with the ORN token at its core.

Not only will multiple revenue streams ensure the longevity of Orion Protocol itself, but will benefit ORN holders and stakers, too:


Orion Decentralized Brokerage is the staking model that underpins Orion's ecosystem. Orion’s staking model is built on a network of brokers and stakers, both rewarded via transaction fees on the protocol. Staking rewards are generated through volume from our flagship product, Orion Terminal, combined with the volume from all other DeFi products. As such, unlike other exchanges or aggregators, ORN holders could yield huge staking rewards from our B2B products alone. 

> Passive benefits on staked ORN tokens


Orion Terminal is the decentralized gateway to the entire crypto market. Traders can connect their own wallets and trade in a decentralized manner across all major exchanges - both centralized and decentralized - even those they don't have accounts with. ORN stakers will benefit through staking rewards generated as a percentage of trading fees, as well as fees for premium trading features.

> Fees for arbitrage access and premium trading features


Orion Developer Kit is an open source repository to allow anyone to build decentralized apps on the protocol. Anything from apps for investment, trading bots, market making bots, and payment gateways can be built on the protocol, connected to every exchange in the market, and monetized within Orion Marketplace. Within each dApp, ORN will function as a utility token to pay for all services. Our first partner to utilize this solution is BOT Ocean.

> Signals feed and dApp store fees


Orion Liquidity Boost Plugin provides exchanges and crypto projects immediate access to the liquidity and volume of all exchanges in the market. Every transaction placed on partner exchanges using Orion liquidity will result in a transaction on the Protocol met with regular trading fees, adding to Daily Protocol Volume. ORN staking rewards are generated via transactions on the protocol, and will therefore increase through LBP partnerships. Furthermore, the licensing fee charged to use this plugin will be used to market buy ORN tokens off the secondary market and permanently remove them from supply. Eleven partners have already been announced, including Polkastarter, MobiePay, PlasmaPay, Fire Protocol, Glitch Finance, Fuse, YFDAI, YOP, Polkamarkets, and COTI.

Orion Launchpad Liquidity enables the launch of incubated projects on the launchpad’s own platform, via a seamless whitelabel swap DEX with the liquidity of the entire market. With this solution, incubated projects raise funds on the launchpad platform, and list on their own Swap immediately afterwards: reducing friction, improving customer experience, and generating revenue. Every trade executed on the swap will result in a transaction on the Protocol met with regular trading fees, adding to Daily Protocol Volume and therefore staking rewards. Four partners have already been announced to utilize this solution, including DuckDAO, DAOMaker, Poolz, and YFDAI.

> Fee from every swap conducted


Orion Collateral Optimization will allow for streamlined liquidation of assets for lending platforms across any exchange in the market, allowing for the transaction of large quantities of assets strategically without the associated risks. All lending platform liquidations will carry a fee, paid in ORN. Our first partner to utilize this solution is Bonded Finance.

> Fee from all lending platform liquidations


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. As per many of our B2B solutions, every trade executed via the widget will result in a transaction on the Protocol met with regular trading fees, adding to Daily Protocol Volume and staking rewards. The licensing fee charged to use this widget will be used to buy ORN tokens off the secondary market and permanently remove them from circulating. 

> Percentage of transactions made through client
> Licensing fee


Orion Oracle enables market-leading pricing data that is resilient to price manipulation due to price derivation from every order book in the market. Crypto projects and dApps built on the protocol will pay a fee for real-time pricing data, and our first partner to utilize this solution is Chainlink.

> Fee for Oracle usage


Orion DEX Kit allows blockchains to build decentralized exchanges, specific to their chain, in just hours. Every trade executed via the DEX Kit will result in a transaction on the Protocol met with regular trading fees, adding to Daily Protocol Volume and staking rewards. Once again, the licensing fee charged to use the DEX Kit will be used to market buy ORN off the secondary market and permanently remove them from supply. 

> Percentage of trading fee from DEX
> Licensing fee


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 while allowing for the least slippage of any solution in the market. Every trade executed via the Wallet Swap SDK will result in a transaction on the Protocol met with regular trading fees, adding to Daily Protocol Volume and staking rewards. More information will come on this solution in Q2.

> Share of fees from each trade/swap performed using the wallet SDK


Orion Global Liquidity Pool will be the world’s largest liquidity pool, composed of assets from all major third party wallets. For the first time ever, token holders are able to monetize their idle assets that are in their crypto wallet of choice - by using those assets to provide liquidity within Orion Liquidity Pool. Once again, every trade via the Global Liquidity Pool will result in a transaction on the Protocol met with regular trading fees, adding to Daily Protocol Volume and staking rewards. More information will come on this solution in Q2.

> Fee from every swap conducted


Orion Margin Trading + Lending will be the first project to enable high-margin trading not seen on a decentralized platform, enabled through aggregating the liquidity and depth of all major centralized exchanges. Orion users and brokers will be able to earn interest by lending their assets in our decentralized margin trading solution, while the fee to do so will be paid in ORN.

> Percentage of interest on leveraged assets
> Fee on passive interest earned by brokers monetizing idle assets


The growth of Orion gives life to many unique elements which combine to further the development and possibilities for the protocol. Eighteen revenue streams (and counting) is a hallmark of things to come, and pushes ORN's use case into the stratosphere once again. Learn how each of these solutions could impact your staking rewards.
