Online Prediction Market

Author kenrick    Category Uncategorized     Tags


I am a junior at UAA, working on developing an online prediction market.  This is going to be a place for people all over the world to bet on whether future events will occur or not.  An example of this could be “Will the Denver Broncos win Super Bowl 48?”  Users will be able to bet yes or no on all sorts of events, and relatively simple algorithms will be written to dictate “the line” or the percent return if a user chooses yes vs. no based on the likelihood of an event occurring.  This will be a simple, user-friendly site that is very minimalist in nature.  In fact, apart from being a web page, I feel that calling this an app is more suitable than calling it a website, simply because the website is functionally just a series of yes/no buttons for users to click on.  I am looking for a hard-working student who is interested in developing the website.  I would like to have someone who is already familiar with web development and who excels at computer programming.  This will be a for-profit development, and I can offer a sizable share of equity to a student who is interested in becoming a business partner.  This has the potential to be a very lucrative business, offering a continuous stream of passive income from the moment the site goes live.

Please let me know if you are interested.
