Augur v1 Cutoff Update

Augur v1 is winding down to a close, and with that transition, there are some important points to consider:

  • Market creation performed in the UI enforces cutoff date of January 1st, 2020 at 00:00:00 UTC
  • With Augur v2, a REPv1 to REPv2 token migration is required, putting markets on Augur v1 at a higher risk of resolving incorrectly due to the assumption that a large amount of REPv1 will swiftly migrate to REPv2, potentially leaving insufficient REPv1 behind to accurately resolve markets.
  • Only markets that enter reporting prior to January 1st, 2020 at 00:00:00 UTC and meet a specified Initial Reporter stake threshold should be considered safe to trade on. …

Augur v2 — Faster Oracle & Market Resolution System

Augur v2 will feature much improved oracle speed, and thus, trader experience. Here are a few of the key changes:

  • 24 Hour Designated Reporting Window — Once a market enters reporting in v2, the Designated Reporter (DR) has 24 hours to submit a report on the market’s outcome, as opposed to 72 hours in v1.
  • 24 Hour Initial Dispute Window — Once the Initial Reporting window is complete, users have 24 hours to dispute. If the Dispute Bond is not filled in that window, the market resolves to the initially reported outcome. In v1, there was no 24 hour dispute window. …
