I definitely think its too high.  The problem is that its the same operation as force settling any other bitasset.  Some may not want to lower the fee for fear that more people will force settle.

What does everyone else think?
Aren't you a LTM?

I settled my test prediction market asset in the GUI today.  It worked, but the fee to settle is 200bts.

Isn't that a little too high? Why 200?

 +5% Cool.

You might want to explain it in more detail for people that are not familiar with prediction markets and shorting.

You can now take either side of a prediction market in the GUI.

To celebrate I have created two new prediction markets
SPORTS.NFLAFC will track the AFC Championship game.  Short and sell if you believe that Patriots will win.  Buy and hold if you think the Broncos will win.
SPORTS.NFLNFC will track the NFC Championship game.  Short and sell if you believe the Cardinals will win.  Buy and hold if you think Think the Panthers will win.
