It’s been a little over a week since Augur launched and there has been a lot of activity thus far. To date, there have been 460+ markets created with over $930,000+ USD (1,950+ ETH) in active open interest at stake, and a total of $1,300,000+ USD (2,750+ ETH) collectively in Augur’s contracts. Active open interest can be seen at, and the total amount of ETH can be seen in the Cash contract.

Another milestone occurred today when the first Augur markets resolved successfully:

This fee window only included a few markets with active open interest, due to the time of when Augur launched and when the fee window closes (5PM PT on Wednesdays, currently), resolving to about $20,000 USD. A community member made a calculator where you can see all details about reporting, staking REP, fees earned, and a timer for the current fee window.
