Augur Weekly Report — September 18th

Augur v1 Cutoff Update

Augur v1 is winding down to a close, and with that transition, there are some important points to consider:

  • Market creation performed in the UI enforces cutoff date of January 1st, 2020 at 00:00:00 UTC
  • With Augur v2, a REPv1 to REPv2 token migration is required, putting markets on Augur v1 at a higher risk of resolving incorrectly due to the assumption that a large amount of REPv1 will swiftly migrate to REPv2, potentially leaving insufficient REPv1 behind to accurately resolve markets.
  • Only markets that enter reporting prior to January 1st, 2020 at 00:00:00 UTC and meet a specified Initial Reporter stake threshold should be considered safe to trade on.
  • The Augur reference UI will only display markets, by default, that meet the required stake relative to their Reporting Start Time. This allows traders to continue to use Augur without having to worry about which markets are safe or not.

Development Update

The team has been finishing up all the v2 implementation of the Markets, Reporting, and Disputing pages as well as cleaning up the notifications wiring.

Augur v2 will feature contextual toast notifications. The goal of notifications is to help users be more productive, informed, and engaged. Augur’s new notification system accomplishes this by delivering users relevant and actionable messages.

As seen in the below design mocks, the notification system in v2 will be far more robust than in v1, however another goal is to ensure they’re not overbearing and intrusive:
