Ethereum update: MedCredits is on schedule to meet Augur prediction goal with Beta 2.0 release today
With the launch of Augur’s prediction market, Ethereum is getting some great positive attention. The release of functional, decentralized platforms on Ethereum is what continues to give Ethereum value over potential competing platforms (e.g. EOS). Total betting volume on Augur surpassed $1 million earlier, and is only growing.
As mentioned in the [CoinDesk article](https://www.coindesk.com/augur-crypto-betting-volumes-just-topped-1-million/) from earlier today, the company MedCredits is using Augur to assure accountability in launching the first dapp in its decentralized health system.
The Beta 2.0 version of the MedCredits dapp was just released today and the public launch on Ethereum mainnet is scheduled for October 2018. Actually, one of the top prediction markets on Augur right now is a bid from the MedCredits founders assuring public launch by October 15 (https://predictions.global).
The app is rather easy to use if you’d like to try. It might be one of the most user friendly dapps out there. You can test it at https://hippocrates.medcredits.io.
During this testing period, users can earn real MEDX tokens by submitting cases on the dapp. More details at https://medium.com/medcredits/start-earning-medx-on-hippocrates-107662a751d9.
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
