Veil Markets

Veil is continuing to ship new features, including profiles and usernames. In their own words:

We’re excited to make Veil a more social experience. We’ll keep updating and improving social features each week, but we’d like to show off two big steps towards that goal: profiles and usernames. Profiles to start are just an accounting of your usage of Veil — how many markets you’ve participated in and your overall return.
You can also go update your own username now using this link: https://kovan.veil.market/account. Eventually your Veil identity will gain notoriety as both a market creator and participant. Start curating it now.

Additionally, Veil has built and launched the first version of a system to automatically report on Augur markets and resolve them in Veil. This feature is only open to a limited amount of markets at this time, but lets you redeem your Augur shares for ETH immediately on resolution.

Finally, check out an interview between Veil’s Paul Fletcher-Hill and 0x here.
