How ORGINS Addresses Supply Chain Provenance

Track detailed supply chain information

ORIGINS links detailed information about the supply chain of precious metals to digital records of ownership on the Tradewind Platform. ORIGINS improves data integrity by requiring third-party verification throughout the supply chain. The refiner approves the data entered by suppliers and Tradewind verifies the identity of all parties in the ecosystem.

How does ORIGINS work?

Track detailed information about the supply chain precious metals from the source mine or recycler, through the refining process, and ultimately to the end physical product.

Sources: Mines and recyclers may add information about the source of precious metals refined at participating refiners. The data includes the location of the mine (where applicable), shipping dates, and a list of certifications or standards the source complies with. Once recorded on ORIGINS, the source information is linked to the digital records of ownership and will be visible to downstream participants as the metal is purchased and sold.

Refiner: Receives material from the source and approves the ORIGINS data recorded by the supplier on the Tradewind Platform. The refiner and source agree to the amount of fine ounces of gold or silver metal in their shipment, and register a corresponding amount on the Tradewind platform. Information about the refiner is also tracked and made available to downstream participants.

Market Participants: Can purchase and sell precious metals with linked ORIGINS information, allowing the participant to trade metal that meets their specific sourcing needs. Participants can hold precious metals balances on the Tradewind platform, and view their holdings summarized by source and location, or elect to take delivery of physical products at the refiner.
