The Augur updated V2 launch checklist consists of:  “0x finish high priority performance tuning. 0x finish browser database refactor. Working through performance, regression, and stability testing.  Slimming down initial download so the app loads fast.  Final contract coverage testing.”

Some of them are wondering about the probable friction points.  They are contemplating on whether there will be market makers and about where the initial liquidity will come from.

Augur operates with two cryptocurrencies, it is built on Ethereum and it functions as a decentralized oracle.  The source which verifies for real world occurrence.

Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted:  “Augur is already a famous peer-to-peer protocol meant for the prediction markets, a smart shift away from conventional prediction markets.”

The good thing about Augur is that when a judge has a self-interest in an outcome they might not be the right judge.  The idea of decentralized predication and protocols which automatically execute smart contracts which filter information from the Augur Oracle helps in the different states of market flow in the betting process.
