Huobi Ventures Weekly Insights

A Glance at Decentralized Prediction Markets By Yahile Ning Huobi Ventures

  • Development of a Low-Profile Sector: DPMs(Decentralized Prediction Markets)
  • Trading Volume and Market Data of Existing Protocols
  • Comparison of Product Features
  • Looking Forward to Upcoming Innovations

During the European Cup season, the crypto world witnessed quite a turnover rate in DPMs(Decentralized Prediction Markets). We’re pleased to kickstart a new sector where Yahile has been working on at Huobi Ventures. In the research report A Glance at Decentralized Prediction Markets, we analyzed the development of the prediction markets with data collected (as of July 5th), compared protocols, focused on some innovative products, and discussed many possibilities in the future.

DPM with no centralized operators, information on chain, and richer revenue models, can be regarded as an information market.Fund flows and user participation are still small compared with lending or DEX. However we should continue to expect more surprises from the innovative market.
