Are current gas prices having influence on future shape of the system? If the comment in this question is relevant, just the cost of making an offer (order) will cost several dollars. That is a significant change from several months ago when it was fractions of a dollar.

Are you going to adjust the system somehow, and if so, how?


For the initial MVP release of Augur gas costs will be very high and trades will be slow as they are all on chain.

The first improvement planned for the system is to support some form of off chain trading, which will lessen the costs of trading and speed it up considerably.

In the future we plan to explore other off chain improvements, potentially using something like Raidos or Plasma. These would reduce gas costs dramatically and potentially speed up the platform by orders of magnitude.

  • I don't suppose there is a timeframe since offchain solutions are not available yet, but how big a priority is this? – comodoro Jan 19 '18 at 18:29
  • It's actively in discussion and likely the next large improvement to the platform after audit feedback and bug bounty – achapman Jan 19 '18 at 23:41
