Do I need to purchase Ethereum before I can buy or use Augur?


Purchasing Ethereum is not a prerequisite to purchasing REP, but a small ETH balance is necessary for certain gas requiring functions such as sending REP to another ETH address, creating a market, or performing reporting duties as an oracle.

To own REP tokens (and do nothing else) all that is required is an ETH address and possession of the private key that controls it so that you have access to the REP sent to that ETH address.
