A watch brand cultivates a very strong image, and its independence is essential – it is the reason no brand ever wants to be under the influence of another. The right infrastructure had to be found in order to create an impartial standard that could be used by all, without a single majority stakeholder. Therefore, the foundation is the most appropriate legal vehicle to support the ORIGYN protocol.
A foundation structure increases transparency, removes the possibility of it being bought or merged, and eliminates the dynamic of a single controlling entity. The real owner of a foundation is its purpose.
The objective of the ORIGYN Foundation is to support and coordinate the research and development of ORIGYN tools and technologies.
