Learn about the world's first decentralized knowledge graph

Welcome to the OriginTrail official docs

OriginTrail technology is a set of tools and protocols evolving as the semantic layer for Web3, built on the OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph (DKG). Its function is to empower developers and system integrators utilizing decentralized knowledge exchange supported by emerging standards and DLT networks.
The DKG enables you to:
  • Easily discover, query and integrate datasets from multiple sources
  • Securely share semantic data (knowledge) across systems and dapps​
  • Monetize your APIs and data, using fungible and non-fungible tokens (knowledge tokens)
  • Easily build custom verifiable data pipelines
  • Integrate with existing SSI & blockchain tooling
This documentation is structured in 4 sections:
  • Introduction to OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph - we recommend starting here
  • For developers: how to use the DKG as a Dapp builder
  • For node operators: how to host the OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph by running nodes
  • Generally useful resources section
Note: This site is primarily built for developers and OriginTrail network node runners - if you are looking to learn more about the OriginTrail ecosystem, please visit the official website.
This site is a constantly updated, work-in-progress documentation built by the OriginTrail community and core developers. We appreciate any feedback, improvement ideas and comments. To provide updates, please submit them as pull requests on the docs Github repo. For feedback and discussions please use Github issues.
