What is Augur?
Augur is a decentralized prediction market platform. Augur was launched in 2014 and was one of the first major platforms built on the Ethereum blockchain.
Augur is, essentially, a decentralized take on gambling — created from the concept of monetizing correct predictions. Crypto users can speculate and predict the outcome of any future event, such as an election or the World Cup winner, and those who predict correctly win money. The smaller the likelihood of an event occurring, the bigger the reward will be. Augur’s advanced prediction model means that it can generate real-time predictive data, which are often more accurate than the predictions of leading experts.

Augur and Flights
How does Augur work?
Augur is a protocol for cryptocurrency users to create their own prediction markets. Unlike exchanges where assets are traded, prediction markets let users bet on the outcome of future events. Augur allows users to create a prediction market on any topic. Users trade on an event’s outcome by buying and selling the ‘shares’ of an outcome and its value, without reliance on an intermediary.
What is the token of Augur?
REP is the native cryptocurrency of Augur. Users don't need REP to trade (ETH is used for that) but to create a market, you'll need both some REP and ETH.
Who owns Augur?
Augur was founded in 2014 by Jack Peterson and Joey Krug, who shared a vision to shift away from traditional centralized prediction markets. The Augur protocol is supported by Forecast Foundation, a group of developers who contribute to the maintenance and development of the protocol. Because it is decentralized, the Forecast Foundation supports the protocol but does not own or control it. Following crowdfunding in 2015, the project was launched in July 2018.
