    PredictIt Closing Down 2023

    The staff of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has withdrawn the No-Action letter (NAL) issued to Victoria University of Wellington and under which PredictIt has operated since 2014.
    Hereís what you need to know:
    The security of trader funds will not be affected by this action.

    We intend to continue operating existing markets for trading through Feb. 15, 2023 unless they resolve sooner under their respective market rules.

    In light of this decision, we are halting the addition of new markets.

    powerful ppl wanted to kill it. we'll see if they can appeal or come back but it don't look good.
    just like Intrade which I used in the 2008 market. But Predictit was much better managed.

    this is sad. still some action for this year I guess but the 2024 markets are collapsing.
    totals don't add up to 1.00 anymore.

    there is still a little hope.

    "PredictIt maintains that all open markets are within the terms of the No-Action letter. We know our PredictIt community is incredibly strong and committed to this project.We will continue to update this page with additional information as it becomes available."

    I wondered how they lasted as long as they did. They were operating for profit even with bonuses. They were a straight up gambling operation masquerading as a academic experiment.

    JJ:

    only 5 percent allocated to bitcoins.

    Don't overload - too volatile.

    The most advantageous offerings seem to have liquidity problems anyway.

    Not a big loss, in my opinion.

    Although always sad to see any type of out go.
