About Zeitgeist PM
Zeitgeist PM is a blockchain startup that is building technology for open prediction markets and governance solutions. Prediction markets are exchange-based markets that trade on the outcomes of future events. Academic literature has consistently shown that prediction markets (PMs) are the best tool for gathering an accurate signal on future outcomes, beating out polling and other similiar methods.
Supported by Zeitgeist Foundation, a Singaporean non-profit entity, the core product of Zeitgeist PM is the Zeitgeist Network. The Zeitgeist Network is a decentralized blockchain infrastructure built using Substrate that features the core functionality of creating, trading, and resolving prediction markets. Further to this, Zeitgeist PM also builds tooling such as the SDK for interacting with the network, a front-end application for interacting with the chain, and other necessary infrastructure.
