BM, thoughts on this?  Digital Asset seems to be sticking with the permissioned ledger for this one. 

Impressive $5MM for a prediction market startup.

If it is not decentralized what advantage does it offer over Intrade? Did she forget about Intrade?

She is offering a more efficient Intrade, nothing more and nothing less. I'm not against the permissioned ledger idea but I see no point in building on top of her ledger if there is Augur.

I suppose she is bringing relationship capital? She knows the movers and shakers?

B l yt h e Master s


 :o
:D

I love Blythe Master. I even got a book on her that I cannot read well, it's in french. So I would take her innovation, seriously. But don't mistake where my loyalty lies. I love Bytemaster 100x more. she's just a mouse to him really!

How is bitshares permissionless when it comes to orediction markets?  Only  exchange function is decentralized

Is augur decentralized?

Yes.....  Repcoins are censorship resistent.

I think it's good. When there are a few of these things, especially from mainstream sources, then they will be spending their money to (1) forge a regulatory path and (2) appeal to customers. Let them do the hard work and soften up the government and markets for us. The blockchain can always undercut other business models.
