Hypothetically, what features of a prediction market / assassination market would you like to see?

Any system that launched on July 4th and was available on Tor as of right now to invited users would include:
  • OSS once the bounty is met
  • PM system
  • login-less usage - reserve payout dates/addresses by sending BTC to the server

We are looking at ways to make the planned site community-policed, and would love input to that end as well.

Certainly an ideologically valid hope.

We are coming from a different POV.

...[Bell] calls his idea “assassination politics:” An anonymous prediction market in the deaths of political figures. In a prediction market, participants place bets on events, and collect if their predictions are correct (the players who aren’t correct lose their money).

Simply put, Bell’s idea is that anonymous, untraceable digital money will allow the enforcement of “good behavior” on politicians. A politician who pisses people off will find his or her name listed in the “assassination market.” Once enough money is in the pool under that politician’s name to make it worth the risk, someone will “bet” on when that politician is going to die, kill (or arrange the killing of) the politician at the time in question, and collect the pool money...

...Bell’s essay took emerging technological developments to their theoretical extreme, but government prosecutors couldn’t try him for “felony production of essays.” Instead, they patched together a crazy quilt of allegations, ranging from tax evasion to “stalking a federal employee” — some possibly true, some probably false, most unworthy of being called “crimes” even if true.

It would be easy to write off the Bell case as an outlier — a rare case of government overreaction — if not for the fact that in the decade following his initial prosecution, lots of other people have found themselves confronted by police, and some have even gone to jail, for implementing a non-extreme, but central, element of the package he put together. That element? Outing and identifying bad actors in government...

I fully support the idea, even as a Liberal.

We are not making distinctions of a political nature.

The suicide bankers and financial terrorists are basically doing the same thing with CDOs and derivatives to home mortgages and whole countries like Greece.  See Keiser Report(s) for details:  http://rt.com/programs/keiser-report/

Not specifically to the LEOs coming through American doors - shooting old men, ex-Marines, and seven year old girls.

The original idea was Domestic Enemies, but we won't moderate BTC Enemies.

The source of the MtGox hack, therefore, would also be fair game.

In order to provide deniability, we'll need cutouts for intel on the individuals posted.

If you are interested in providing intel (which will be publicly posted) in exchange for BTC, make yourself known.
