Description

Augur is an open-source, decentralized prediction market platform where users can trade on the outcome of future events. The outcome of those events is determined by Augur’s decentralized oracle, where the community uses the crypto token Reputation (REP) to report and dispute event outcomes.

By combining the magic of prediction markets with the power of a decentralized network, we’re able to create a stunningly accurate forecasting tool that can be used by anyone in the world. Read more about Augur’s mission here.

Augur is built from the ground up to be owned and operated by the people that use it. This is a technical reality enabled by the Ethereum blockchain and open source software. The Forecast Foundation, a small team of 15 who are the primary developers, designers, and maintainers of the Augur protocol, is a globally distributed not-for-profit entity.
