At the intersection of DeFi and information exchange lies the Prediction Market : an area where traders can leverage their knowledge of the past, present and future to forecast specific, real world outcomes.
Currently, existing prediction markets suffer from key problems such as lack of liquidity & markets, lack of traders, and duplicate or confusing markets.
Polkamarkets aims to solve these problems by incentivising liquidity providers and traders to facilitate & take large positions, while a system for curation and resolution ensures efficient and trustworthy markets.
There is no market winner, yet
The ability to profit off of information exchange and modeling has formed the basis for much of modern capital markets.
With the rise of Decentralised Finance (DeFi), traders are finding yield through decentralised exchange, lending, farming and providing liquidity for others to use.
No current player in the market provides all of this together
