Blast from the past, see older message below by Zenaan Harkness.
But my question is, "Will this system allow a 'Well-funded, anonymous unlimited prediction market" to exist?
You know, the kind where people could make bets predicting the death of whoever they'd like to name.  What is given the name, "WUMPA markets".  A prediction which cannot be vetoed by the operators of some system, say the owners of Ethereum or Augur.  I suggest that's what the world is waiting for.
