Traders: Check Sheet

Here is a quick reference of things to look for when deciding whether or not to trade on a market, to avoid getting tricked or scammed:

Pay particular attention to the end time of the market, and what the market is actually asking. If a timezone was not provided in the market question, reporters have been assuming UTC as a (sort-of) schelling point.

You can also ask the Augur community about a particular market if you are unsure. People will gladly flag potentially Invalid markets in the Augur Discord and Reddit.
