Augur — #28 Will Donald Trump… 👱 👱 👱
That is, will Donald Trump complete his first term as President of the United States? At the time of this article, 90% of people wagered that he will complete his first term. Where is this wager taking place? On Ethereum’s most promising (live on main-net) project to date, Augur.
Don’t worry, the wagers are not limited to American politics, thankfully. World Cup games were a popular wager as well as other events going on around the world. Ironically, crypto price speculation is also on the books for Augur.
If none of these wagers are what you are looking for, you can make your own wager, and it is pretty simple. My colleague Jordan did a great job of creating this easy to follow video on how to make your own wager on the Augur platform. You will need some ETH (Ethereum) or REP, Augur’s native token. Here is a video on how to buy useful tokens like REP
In the world of DApps (Decentralized Application), design is not always a priority. It looks like Augur wanted to change this standard. Their DApp has a slick contemporary design that is easy to navigate, similar to Ethex.market design standards. This decentralized prediction market was not an easy undertaking. Joey Krug, the CO-CIO explained the level of difficulty of building Augur using a NASA reference. You can read it below.
Are you hyped!? You should be. Because I am! Did I hear you ask me how to get started with Augur? I got you. It is super easy. You go to their website, click on the “Get Started” button. then click on the “Download App” button. This takes you to GitHub and you can download the file that corresponds with your operating system. If you want to see how it is done, I made this short video for you.
Thank you for your time and checking out this article. I hope you enjoyed it and found it valuable. If you did, show me some love with as many claps as you want, up to 50. ‘Til next time.
REP is a useful token that supports Augur. I work for Ethex.market, which is a DEX (Decentralized Exchange) that only lists useful tokens. You can purchase REP on Ethex and support the blockchain movement.
