Augur Drops Sneak-Peak at 2020 Releases at Devcon 5

Augur revealed a bunch of updates and sneak-peaks today at Devcon 5, in a presentation given by co-founder and core developer Joey Krug.

As confirmed in a tweet via the official Augur account, the platform has several developments on track for release in the first quarter of 2020.

What can we expect to see from Augur in 2020?

Three versions of Augur are due for release in quick succession at the beginning of next year.

The first is v1.5, which integrates 0x and allows partially off-chain trading. This off-chain extension aims to improve the speeds at which people can create and change orders, rather than wait for these changes to register on-chain.

The second release, v2, involves the integration of MakerDAO’s Dai token.

Finally, the v3 release is intended to be a “fast-trading” version of the platform, which will improve the overall trading experience and especially liquidity.

But that’s not all…

In addition to the above, there are more features to Augur’s “master plan” in the pipeline.

Joey gave us a sneak-peak at the brand-new Augur Betting UI – which is intended to re-create the classic offline betting experience, on the Augur platform. Check it out below:

Augur also plans to provide its users with an easy-to-access mobile user interface, as well as build and deliver tools for market-making.
