About Gnosis

Gnosis will be a disruptive force driving change in a number of systemically important global markets, including finance, gambling, insurance, and information. Gnosis prediction markets will also find applications in new forms of distributed, market-based governance protocols, and will provide unique incentivization opportunities for both local and global economies.


Gnosis is well-positioned as a medium for a long-term shift toward information arbitrage economies that will power the Internet of Things, as well as more advanced forms of artificial intelligence. We believe that we are on the cusp of a Cambrian explosion of machine intelligence that will leverage a global liquidity pool of information for decision-making and will be deeply interwoven on a shared blockchain fabric such as Ethereum. Decentralized prediction markets seeded on Gnosis will be the ideal medium of exchange for these intelligent agents.

Features

- Set of contracts on the Ethereum blockchain that allow to build prediction markets on any topic on top of them
- Innovative token`s distribution model: the price of GNO token will be determined by a falling price specification
- GNO tokens generate WIZ tokens which can be used to pay platform fee, subsidize the fees of other participants, provide initial subsidies for markets, or for market trading (WIZ can be redeemed to pay $1 worth of fees)
- Fees can also be paid with the token that is used in the market (ETH/BTC)
- The fee`s reduction mechanism

Roadmap

  • GNOSIS.JS BETA & SMART CONTRACTS BETA

  • gnosis.js is an easy-to-use tool to enable every website developer to build applications on top of Gnosis. gnosis.js will integrate with redesigned, more modular smart contracts and GnosisDB as only backend.
  • THE BEGINNINGS

  • Founders Martin Köppelmann and Stefan George meet at University and soon create the largest Bitcoin Prediction Market.
  • GNOSIS MANAGEMENT INTERFACE BETA

  • A new interface to create and maintain markets is in the making, giving Gnosis a modern look and intuitive and productive user experience. The interface will offer a light version providing all functionalities needed to get started as well as an advanced interface to get the most out of the functionalities offered by Gnosis.

  • ETHEREUM IS BORN

  • Ethereum white paper is released describing a blockchain mechanism allowing for decentralized platforms like Gnosis prediction markets.
  • GNOSISDB ALPHA

  • Storage of data on a blockchain is very expensive. The blockchain should only be used to verify the accuracy of information. GnosisDB is a generic database layer combining cheap storage with the advantage of fast document search and retrieval.
  • CONSENSYS IS FOUNDED

  • ConsenSys is founded by Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum, to develop applications for decentralized ecosystems.
  • GNOSIS HACKATHON (33.33%)

  • Gnosis will host a hackathon to support developers building apps on top of Gnosis.
  • GNOSIS & CONSENSYS

  • Gnosis is founded by Martin Köppelmann and Stefan George. The team joins ConsenSys as a first spoke. Proof of concept development starts.
  • REALITYKEYS ORACLE INTEGRATION

  • RealityKeys will be the first external oracle provider integrated into Gnosis. The RealityKeys service provides automated and human-verified data designed to enable a new generation of automated information services.
  • FRONTIER GOES LIVE

  • Ethereum releases first proof of concept, Frontier, and the genesis block is created.
  • CRYPTOECONOMIC EXPERIMENTS (36.48%)

  • Thanks to a generous grant from the Ethereum foundation, Gnosis will be running a series of experiments to test the viability of Futarchy.
  • GNOSIS POC1

  • An alpha version of Gnosis launches just a week after Frontier goes live as the first major DApp on Ethereum.
  • ORACLIZE INTEGRATION

  • Oraclize will be the second external oracle provider to be integrated into Gnosis. Oraclize aims to be the privileged data gateway between blockchain protocols and the world wide web. Oraclize’s main goal is to provide a way for smart contracts to break free of their constraints and provide them with the ability to access all the data they need from the web without compromising their trustless nature.
  • DEVCON 1 IN LONDON

  • Gnosis is presented for the first time publicly on stage to the Ethereum developer community.
  • GNOSIS AMA DAPP WITH TWITTER INTEGRATION (34.89%)

  • The first end user facing application will target the blockchain audience. Gnosis AMA (ask me anything) DApp allows anyone to ask the market for an estimate: “When will Ethereum switch to Proof of Stake”, “Will Bitcoin hardfork?”. A Twitter bot integration will make it possible to participate by tweeting.
  • THE TEAM GROWS…

  • Denis Granha joins the development team and Matt Liston (who previously founded Augur) joins Gnosis as Chief Strategist.
  • THE TEAM GROWS…

  • Denis Granha joins the development team and Matt Liston (who previously founded Augur) joins Gnosis as Chief Strategist.
  • GNO/WIZ FUNCTIONALITY

  • Together with the first end user facing application we will enable the WIZ functionality for paying fees.
  • GNOSIS RECEIVES DEV GRANT

  • Gnosis receives dev grant to do research on the decentralized governance model Futarchy.
  • ON-CHAIN EXCHANGE AS PRICE ORACLE

  • As part of offering WIZ functionality, a newly designed market maker will be deployed. This market maker can serve as a universal price oracle for tokens and will enable using WIZ to pay fees for markets traded in any ERC20 token.
  • GNOSIS POC2

  • Gnosis releases the second proof of concept, which includes a gnosis.js developer library to allow third parties to easily build on Gnosis.
  • GNODEX ALPHA

  • GNODEX will be the decentralized, scalable state channel based exchange to trade predictive assets. The development already started, however, due to its complexity it is expected that an MVP will take at least a year of development. Gnosis seeks to combine forces with other teams to build the basic layers required to offer a decentralized exchange, with Gnosis adding layers required to offer trading of prediction market outcomes.
  • ADVISORS JOIN

  • Vitalik Buterin joins as technical advisor. Robert Hanson, the inventor of prediction markets, and Jason Trost, founder of Smarkets sports betting, join the advisory board.
  • FUTARCHY DAO ALPHA

  • Gnosis will build a tool to create DAOs that only use prediction markets to make decisions. The concept was popularized under the name Futarchy by our advisor Robin Hanson. Futarchy DAOs will measure the market reaction of a decision. The DAO will only make decisions if the market would react friendly to it.
  • DEVCON 2 IN SHANGHAI

  • Gnosis is presented to a wide range of multinational developers and investors.
  • GNOSIS TRADING INTERFACE ALPHA

  • The generic Gnosis interface does not meet the requirements for a trading application. For this reason Gnosis is working on an additional interface dedicated to traders. Gnosis will combine the best parts of existent trading interfaces from Kraken, Poloniex and other trading platforms to provide a seamless user experience.
  • BUG BOUNTY

  • Start of bug bounty program for token launch relevant smart contracts to ensure a successful and safe token auction.

  • Alan Lu joins the team to develop models and algorithms for market making. Giacomo Licari joins to support DevOps and full-stack development.
  • ONE OTHER GNOSIS DAPP

  • It is the core concept of Gnosis to enable third parties to develop prediction market applications on top of Gnosis. To accelerate platform adoption, the Gnosis team will develop DApps directly as well. Which application areas we choose to work on will be based on our own business development research and coordinated with outside teams that decide to build on Gnosis.
