We would like to emphasize why we are using a crowdsale to distribute the Reputation Tokens necessary for Augur to work. Ideally we would have used a different distribution method besides a crowdsale but a crowdsale is needed for the decentralized oracle system used by Augur to ensure proper event reporting.
We also want to reassure those who are interested in creating markets and placing wagers in Augur that it will be open to absolutely anyone, Reputation tokens are only used by those who are responsible to report event outcomes. Anyone (with or without REP tokens) can create markets and trade in all markets.
- True Augur (15%): August 17- August 22, 12:00pm (EST)
- Prophet (10%): August 22- August 27, 12:00pm (EST)
- Nate Silver (5%): August 27 - September 5, 12:00pm (EST)
- Nostradamus (0%): September 5- October 1, 12:00pm (EST)
You can enter an Ethereum address to receive your rep anytime between now and the final launch of Augur. You can change it anytime before then as well if you get a new address you want to use instead.
