Augur Weekly Development Update — July 19th

This past week our new engineers have been ramping up, and we’ve been reviewing feedback from auditors. Our engagement with IDEO has wrapped up(!), and the development of the new client skin is underway. Rather than posting mockups, we will be deploying a new development server that will incorporate the new design as it’s being built. This will come once we have a few of the core screens completed. IDEO really did a great job, and we can’t thank their team enough. We look forward to sharing their work with you!

Augur - A Stack Exchange Proposal
Proposed Q&A site for developers, economists and users interested in the open source, decentralized, prediction market…

We completed our StackExchange proposal last week(!!), meaning our private beta will go live to all the committers this upcoming week! Thank you to everyone who participated, committed and shared, soon enough we’ll have a universal place where we can answer questions from the community.

A reminder to avoid scams in crypto Slacks, unfortunately this is still an issue. Please report the phishers Slack accounts to team admins.

We will have some more information in the next week around the status and results of some of our audits — stay tuned! Our docs are also being updated at, for all the developers out there.
