Crunchbase

Circle Internet Financial’s research arm recently published a blog post that compares centralized and decentralized prediction markets platforms. The blog first noted that the main idea behind prediction markets is to use “the wisdom of the crowd” - meaning that “individuals have unique biases, [however] gathering the knowledge and opinions of many individuals cancels out these individual biases, resulting in more robust and accurate predictions.” Before the launch of decentralized networks, almost all prediction market platforms were “centrally owned and operated” - which makes them “unnecessarily expensive”, the blog noted.
