Review

Groups of people wager money on future events, the more you get right the bigger the influence you will have on the prediction outcome.

This is a interesting idea as it is decentralized and results will be available for anyone to view.

I can see a few problems, sometimes groups of people are not smarter than a few experts. People that have a huge influence might be bribed to sway the odds of something or guess wrong to profit from the outcome.

No matter how much we want it, we don’t know the future and augur will not change that. It will slightly sway the odds on some things.
