Delphy has been recently informed by users on the decentralized prediction market projects under the name of Delphy or the name similar to Delphy that may cause confusion, which has been confirmed by us. The name “Delphy” is derived from Delphi, the temple of Apollo, where is the place to receive the oracle of Apollo, the god of sun in ancient Greece. But we have changed the suffix“i”into“y”for distinction, with the pronunciation changed accordingly.
What is a prediction market
Prediction markets are built on the principle that markets serve to aggregate the beliefs and multiple traders to generate a forecast. Similar to the stock market, which serves to assign a price to the future estimated earnings of a stock, “prediction markets” assign a value to a belief about the future (a prediction).
Prediction markets have an advantage over other forms of forecasts due to the following characteristics:
1) They can efficiently aggregate diverse and scattered information, beliefs and data.
2) They obtain truthful and relevant information through financial and other forms of incentives.
3) They provide a near real-time information update mechanism and are difficult to manipulate.
Delphy is a decentralized prediction market platform
Delphy is a mobile platform for prediction markets built on Ethereum as a DApp. In fact, it is a light Ethereum client running on mobile devices. Its born decentralization ensures that prediction markets are hard to manipulate or shut down, and there is no need to trust one single entity.
Delphy is a social platform of Prediction as a Service (PaaS) with its own ecosystem. Delphy users can trade in the prediction market directly, and take advantage of Delphy API & SDK to build their own customized prediction market applications based on their own preferences of markets, pricing strategy or oracle types.
