Getting Started

These docs are intended to explain how OUSD works, communicate the potential risks and benefits, and provide a guide for developers who wish to contribute to our codebase or integrate OUSD into their products. Here are a few ways for you to dive in and get started.

Mint or Redeem

The OUSD Mint allows anyone to create or trade in OUSD tokens using our DApp and a web-3 enabled cryptocurrency wallet like Metamask. This is the native way to get OUSD, especially if you want a large amount that could risk moving the market on other exchanges.

Buy on Exchanges

For small amounts, the easiest way to start earning with OUSD is to buy it on an exchange. We anticipate that OUSD will soon be available on many more decentralized and centralized exchanges.

Adding OUSD to Your Wallet

The main ERC20 address for Origin Dollar (OUSD) is: 0x2A8e1E676Ec238d8A992307B495b45B3fEAa5e86

If your OUSD does not automatically show up in your wallet, you should be able to add it manually using the address above. If you are planning on storing your OUSD in a multi-sig wallet, be sure to opt-in to receive yield. We want to have OUSD supported by as many wallets as possible and included on all the various lists of well-known tokens. We would greatly appreciate any help you can offer in this area.

Integrating OUSD

OUSD is a non-standard ERC-20 token that requires custom integration work for most applications that wish to support it. In particular, it is important for developers to understand how our elastic supply works as this can easily cause unexpected behavior.

If you are a wallet provider or crypto exchange that is interested in supporting OUSD, please refer to the following guides:

Developer Analytics

Our internal developer dashboard is available at analytics.ousd.com. The dashboard shows the current circulating supply, the assets under management in the vault, and the current allocations between each of the stablecoins and strategies.
