Make complex predictions with an easy to use prediction market.
THE HUNCH GAME
The Hunch Game is a gamified prediction market for celebrity and media gossip. It is our first foray into building apps on top of Gnosis. Hunch Game provides an example of a customized application built on Gnosis, and highlights the need for such interfaces. Although celebrity gossip is outside of our interest comfort zone, we feel that it is incredibly important to understand and cater to the needs of users outside of the crypto space. The Hunch Game is nearly ready and can be launched in the first half of 2017 as an example Gnosis app.
predART is an early stage idea to create prediction markets for pre-auction art valuation. We have received insights that such an application would be very useful for auction houses. These houses can save billions 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 see and support a vast array of information gathering applications for industries.
This financial markets questionnaire is the result of an ongoing collaboration with Wedbush Securities. The initial application is a non-monetized prediction market based feedback application for securities research firms to get 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. This is an application that we believe can be truly transformative 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 shock.
Sports betting is potentially a massive market opportunity for Gnosis. Traditionally underserved regions can be more effectively served with a decentralized platform and cryptocurrency onramps. Having an open platform with verifiable behavior introduces an incredible opportunity to bring a wide ranging of competing betting applications onto the same platform. This would be an impossible proposition on centralized platforms that can change rules and offer preferential treatment. Our end goal is to lower the barrier to entry for new applications such as sports betting by at least two orders of magnitude.
