More than the Money, Augur is more than Successful Sales
Just 48 hours into their crowdsale, which launched at 12 p.m. EST on August 17, they have raised in excess of 4200 BTC and 549000 ETH.
Bitcoin has dropped from $253 USD to around the $232 mark since the Augur sale began.
It’s a remarkable feat for a company that has a somewhat esoteric product, built on Ethereum, arguably an as-yet unproven blockchain platform.
Ethereum’s Frontier stage was released just last month, making Augur the first major platform to stake its claim there.
More than 2,400 accounts have been created on the Augur crowdsale site with approximately 1,000 users already buying in.
