Papers

Truthcoin_Whitepaper.pdf - My whitepaper describing a software protocol which creates and manages decentralized prediction markets (PMs).
TruthcoinValuable.pdf - A simple slide deck on the potential return available to contributing investors / programmers (.pptx with presentation notes).

Other papers which describe the overall purposes and goals of this endeavour:

  1. What PMs are and why they're important.
  2. How PMs can be assembled into different types (for maximum impact).
  3. How PMs can be used in ways other than simply predicting the future.
  4. Some myths about PMs which I still hear.
  5. A comment on PM-manipulation and why it actually is helpful (by providing profit opportunities).
  6. Comments on the "assassination markets" concept (why it is unlikely to work).

Notes to Self

  1. Just as Namecoin has an extra tab for names, ideally an extra tab for Markets / Trading.
  2. Toggle an 'Voter/Employee Mode' to access a Voting tab.
  3. Concept of a "Voter helper": gets info from 'recentralizers' (reddit, google, twitter, etc).
  4. Arbitrage Helper (described slightly in Paper #3).
  5. Voters for 'Unclear' always become ".5". For this reason, clear votes for a value which would actually translate to .5 must instead translate to .500001 or so.
