Headline: How to build decentralized prediction markets?

Abstract:

The presentation will cover technical details of the Gnosis platform and how developers can get started building their own application on Gnosis. In addition, future technical challenges to bring Gnosis to the masses will be discussed and possible solutions will be presented.

Gnosis Background:

Gnosis will be a disruptive force driving change in a number of systemically important global markets, including finance, gambling, insurance, and information. Gnosis prediction markets will also find applications in new forms of distributed, market-based governance protocols, and will provide unique incentivization opportunities for both local and global economies. Gnosis is well-positioned as a medium for a long-term shift toward information arbitrage economies that will power the Internet of Things, as well as more advanced forms of artificial intelligence. We believe that we are on the cusp of a Cambrian explosion of machine intelligence that will leverage a global liquidity pool of information for decision-making and will be deeply interwoven on a shared blockchain fabric such as Ethereum. Decentralized prediction markets seeded on Gnosis will be the ideal medium of exchange for these intelligent agents.

Bio of speaker: Stefan George, CTO

01.03.2015 – present Co-Founder of Gnosis - Prediction Market Software.

01.06.2013 – present Co-Founder of Fairlay.com Bitcoin sports betting.

2010 - 2013 Master of Science IT-Systems Engineering. Hasso Plattner Institute.

Stefan is an entrepreneur and developer who became interested in Bitcoin in 2013. He started his own Bitcoin start-up Fairlay, one of the leading prediction markets using Bitcoin today. Previously, Stefan worked at tech companies in Silicon Valley and at Berlin-based start-ups. After finishing his Master’s in Computer Science, he decided to travel to Asia for a year in 2014 and started Gnosis afterwards working from Berlin. The first alpha version of Gnosis was released just one week after the launch of Ethereum. Stefan leads the development at Gnosis and implemented the smart contracts behind the prediction market platform. In addition, Stefan wrote the crowdfunding campaigns for Gnosis and SingularDTV and the multisig-wallet which became a standard for ICOs today.

“Our mission is to build an accessible prediction market platform enabling the free flow of useful information.”

“Decentralization will enforce deregulation and accelerate the development of markets making them globally efficient.”

“A decentralized economy complements the distributed nature of information spread throughout society. Decentralized prediction markets will be the platform to trade this information.”
