First game is over.  Those that were long on SPORTS.NFLAFC win.  I will close the market in a couple of hours.  I want to give anyone that borrowed and didn't sell a chance to close their borrow position. 

Also its now time for the second game.

The OP said short and sell for one condition and buy and hold for another. There was nothing for sale and I couldn't short.

 +5% +5% +5%

Are you going to do a PM for the Super Bowl?

Can open bids, asks, and collateral positions be cancelled at the beginning of the game?

Can these PMs be created through the gui at this point in time?

So participants have to trust the person or people who created the PM instead of a decentralized oracle of some sort?

Already there :) . Look for SPORTS.SBLAFC:BTS/USD/CNY/BTC asset markets.

Care to explain how it works?


I have no idea - I just saw it while looking at their other assets. I'm guessing eventually a feed will be provided so we can short?

So we need to borrow via the cli?
Code: [Select]
borrow_asset <account> <amount> <PMsymbol> <1:1-amount> true

Example: borrow_asset riverhead 100 SPORTS.SBLAFC BTS true

I think in the newest version you can just borrow as usual with a fixed  collateral ratio of 1x ..
you still need to sell those shares though
