HubDub CEO Nigel Eccles:
I fully appreciate the work that Emile and others have done but just because something hasn’t worked before doesn’t mean it can’t happen. […] Sometimes ideas take time and a fresh perspective before they achieve their full potential. […]
- The future is present today as a seed. If we examine today’-s seed under a microscope, we can see part of the future. The fact is that the prices/probabilities from NewsFutures’- play-money prediction markets are NEVER quoted by journalists and bloggers. They quote only InTrade, TradeSports, BetFair and the Hollywood Stock Exchange.
- “-Time”- can change that, indeed, provided that HubDub multiplies volumes by a factor of one million —-which is what I wish for them.
- I don’-t see the “-fresh perspective”- that HubDub would be bringing to the table. HubDub resembles a lot to NewsFutures. (The differences in terms of market design, automated market maker, and breath of topics, are a minor.) HubDub is a generalist, play-money prediction exchange, just like NewsFutures is.
