Weekly Report — August 1st

Week three of Augur brings new websites popping up, a faster syncing process, and an increasing number of user created markets. Another release of Augur App is just in the pipeline.

Markets: 859

Open Interest: $1,443,835 USD (3,431 ETH)

CASH Contract: $1,845,265.02 USD (4,382 ETH)


Predictions.Global added a details page for each individual market, which can be seen by selecting the market title. They’ve also added sorting markets by volume.


Reporters.Chat launched this week saying “Our main goal is to accelerate the adoption of reporting standards for the Augur platform.” A neat feature is that you need to sign a message from an account holding REP in order to comment on the market page.

The Forecast Foundation has no role in the operation of markets, trades or actions created or performed on the Augur protocol, nor does it have the ability to censor, restrict, control, modify, change, revoke, terminate or make any changes to markets created on the Augur protocol. The Forecast Foundation has no more control over the Augur protocol than anyone else using Ethereum.

Thus, we do not seek to advise others on how to use the protocol. We encourage those in the community that are well educated on Augur to pay it forward and share their ideas for best practices, tips, fixes and etc with the larger community via Twitter, Reddit, Discord, Github and other community channels. For more information regarding the role of the Forecast Foundation, checkout the FAQ.
