MEET THE FUTURE

Gnosis builds revolutionary market-driven forecasting technology to let you shape the future.

GNOSIS Apps

  • Gnosis Olympia

    Gnosis Olympia, the alpha version of our prediction market platform, provides participants with a playful environment to try out trading in prediction markets and win GNO tokens as a reward for successful predictions. At the start of the tournament, participants will be issued a balance of 200 OLY tokens, Olympia's official play-money token, which they can then use to make predictions on various topics. Every two days, they'll get a top-up of new OLY tokens allowing them to trade on new markets and climb up the scoreboard. The more profits players make from correctly predicted events, the more GNO tokens they win. For developers aspiring to build dApps on top of our platform, Olympia should serve as both a test environment and an inspiration for what's possible to create with Gnosis.

  • Gnosis Multisig Wallet

    By requiring multiple users to approve a transaction, multisignature wallets enable groups of people to collectively control their funds. The Gnosis Multisig wallet sets a standard in secure fund management: It holds Ether and other ERC-20 tokens, integrates with web3 wallets (e.g. Metamask), supports offline signing, hardware ledgers, and allows users to configure both owners and number of required signatures. In Q1 2018, we will launch a new multisig wallet—the Gnosis Safe. It will offer similar functionality as the Gnosis Multisig, but is geared towards single users using 2 or more factor authentication. The additional factors can be held by mobile devices (phones, tablets) and hardware ledgers. Gnosis Safe will be available for mobile clients (Android, iOS) and as a Chrome extension.

  • Gnosis Dutch Exchange

    The Dutch Exchange is a fully decentralized exchange for ERC-20 token pairings, based on the Dutch auction principle. Sellers submit their tokens ahead of an auction. Then, the auction starts with a high price which falls until the market for the specific token-pairing clears. Buyers submit their bids during the auction but pay the same final price. Hence, the dominant strategies of buyers to reveal their true willingness to pay will result in fair market prices, which, however, comes at the cost of slow trading. The switch to an auction based trading mechanism is a real paradigm shift: It solves the front-running problem currently faced by decentralized exchanges and makes price finding on illiquid markets much more efficient, while retaining the low risk of fund loss that decentralization implies.

  • Gnosis Management Interface

    The Gnosis Management Interface will allow users to trade in prediction markets. Different cards on the dashboard give users a preview of new and soon-closing markets along with their current prediction so they never miss a chance to participate. From within a market's detail page, users are able to buy or sell shares in a market and navigate to their current holdings. Depending on whether they're predicting a categorical event or a scalar event, they'll be able to trade outcome or short/long tokens. Most parts of the interface have already been implemented, and we're hoping to launch it on the mainnet within the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, you can check out a preview here.

  • Build Your Own

    As a decentralized, permissionless platform, we want to make it as easy as possible for others to create prediction market applications on top of Gnosis. Want to build your own prediction market application? Check out the DevKit on our Developer page and start coding.

Ethereum

Gnosis is built on Ethereum, a next generation blockchain protocol enabling advanced smart contracts.

Ethereum is censorship resistant, globally available, and provides transparent guarantees about future operations of the platform. With Ethereum, we can eliminate middlemen and counterparty risk.

Use Cases

  • Price Discovery

    Prediction markets can be used for price discovery. One potential use case is a prediction market for pre-auction art valuation. Auction houses can save millions of dollars with prediction market insights into variables such as where to begin auction pricing, and how much profit to guarantee to sellers. We are excited to help facilitate information gathering applications for both traditional and new industries.

  • Futarchy/Governance

    Futarchy is market-based governance. Instead of asking legislature or a board of directors, markets are created to aggregate information into the best possible decision optimizing for a predefined metric. We already have smart contracts for Futarchy implemented and created a mock up for a governance app. Additionally, we received a DEV grant to research cryptoeconomic market mechanisms and are ready to experimentally investigate whether manipulation of such markets is possible and if so, how to preclude this. We are excited to see Futarchy in action and explore opportunities in corporate and state governance!

  • Financial Markets

    One use case for a financial markets application is a non-monetized prediction market for securities research firms to obtain outside feedback on expected stock fundamentals. We hope that later iterations of this application will open the door to a new generation of financial markets, allowing for trading on a wide variety of stock fundamentals. We believe that this is a development that could be truly transformational for financial markets in general: Having a continuous stream of information on fundamentals and more accurate models using conditional markets will hopefully result in more efficient markets and less volatility.

  • Insurance

    Applications built on top of Gnosis will enable an evolution in the insurance market. Markets can be created for every event with an uncertain outcome, while smart contracts can handle the policy. This disintermediates pricing and paperwork by crowdsourcing actuarial work and eliminating the need for costly middlemen. In addition, new forms of dynamic and micro-insurance products can be created using our infinitely flexible markets.
