Augur (REP) - Where The Wisdom Of The Crowd Matters

Augur (REP) - Where The Wisdom Of The Crowd Matters

It's so heart-breaking to look every now and then to your portfolios especially if you really provided a significant amount to buy a certain crypto and apparently wait for its price to pump. Yes I did it with Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash and now that the market is bloody red, I can't help myself but go berserk and fuming mad about it.

These crazy feelings are just normal and will just prove that we are normal human-beings to get affected with the current price where we put our hard-earned funds with.

Every crypto is red and the dips could go as far as 5% and above. I've seen even 20% in the top 50. Except for the stablecoin of course, there's the only digital asset that made me choose it and discuss it here on publish0x.

Augur (REP)

This is the only crypto that is in green so it prompt my attention to it since I have already been seeing it existing over the years from some exchangers but never really tried buying it yet until I have created an in-depth analysis of its use case, community, markets and the volume it generates.

This digital asset harnesses the wisdowm of the crowd letting the users participate in prediction markets on a protocol owned and operated by holders of the Eth-based Reputation token. Users are able to bet on the outcome of events such as company performance, election results or even natural phenomena by purchasing shares that would either support or refute the projected outcomes of the events that was also shared and being discussed by the members whilst automating payouts using software that is meant to be fair, accessible and completely decentralized.

Augur has long been existing since year 2015


Initial funding as market cap is around $77.7 Million last October 2016 which led its price in USD from $13 down to $7. Interesting, usually, the price of the digital assets when it receives funding should normally pump in its value. It aslo got along with the Bitcoin's rally to its all time high last December when its value reached more than $100 and went along with the rest of the crypto as they all dived afterwards.


The only crypto today that has been stable and didn't get along with the rest of the crypto. Ranks @ number 45 in the Coinmarketcap with around 2.5% 24 hour change rate. At the time of writing this post is it around $18.35.

Current price of Augur (REP) from the CoinGecko Widget is:
