What is Reality Cards?
Reality Cards was created by Andrew Stanger. Andrew had been following the various Ethereum prediction markets ever since the Augur ICO, but was disappointed by their low liquidity. He wondered if it was possible to create an entirely new type of prediction market based on new economic models Ethereum had made possible.
As part of his research, he explored NFTs and the Harberger Tax and ultimately discovered a project called “This Artwork Is Always On Sale” — a unique experiment where a piece of art is quite literally, always on sale, which provided the direct inspiration for Reality Cards.
In a sentence — Reality Cards is what happens when you combine a prediction market with the ‘always on sale’ mechanic.
Reality Cards was brought to life as Andrew’s project for the Consensys Solidity Bootcamp which began in November 2019, where he first began to learn Solidity. Previously he was an Accountant for nearly a decade before taking the leap into Ethereum.
Shortly after the boot camp, Andrew met his co-founder Vlad. As a long-term developer and having a passion for cryptocurrency, Vlad brought much-needed experience to the project, and together they built the company that exists today.
