Augur Project - Decentralized Prediction Markets
About:
"Augur combines the magic of prediction markets with the power of a decentralized network to create a stunningly accurate forecasting tool - and the chance for real money trading profits."


Safe, automated payments by Ethereum-based smart contracts, using $REP (= Reputation) the token behind Augur, and can be thought of as the “score” (for crowd-sourcing intelligence, not investment) of an individual participant within Augur.

Similar alternatives are Fairlay or Gnosis. The latter aggregates relevant information from both human and AI agents into one number and focuses on banking and insurance, with an Oracle database & middleware layer.
