Reality Markets is a prediction market game trading platform. Members are able to trade in events ranging from sports to politics and everything in between. By aggregating the trades of our members we are able to generate highly accurate predictions on the outcomes of those events.
The basic premise of RealityMarkets.com is to build the most valuable stock portfolio of all the users. Simply put, buy the stocks you think will occur, sell the stocks you don't think will occur.
The extended premise of RealityMarkets.com is to use predictive markets that are the result of the collective intelligence of everyone playing to show results that are more accurate than other polls and predictions.
From Wikipedia (Link)
Prediction markets are speculative markets created for the purpose of making predictions. Assets are created whose final cash value is tied to a particular event (e.g., will the next US president be a Republican) or parameter (e.g., total sales next quarter). The current market prices can then be interpreted as predictions of the probability of the event or the expected value of the parameter. Other names for prediction markets include information markets, decision markets, idea futures, and virtual markets.
About The Developer
Brad Stewart is the founder and developer behind RealityMarkets.com.
Brad first started developing web sites back in 1995 while he was still in high school. While attending college at Marquette University, Brad worked for Apple, Inc. as well as General Electric in the Information Management Leadership Program. After completing college in 2002 with B.S. degrees in Marketing and Information Technology, Brad began a real estate investment partnership that that has grown to include holdings in Arizona, Utah and Minnesota. Along the way Brad also began diversifying into small business private equity investment in those same states. His business experience and his desire to gain a competitive edge with better forecasting initially led him to the prediction market industry. In time he decided he wanted to create his own prediction market. In September 2006, he launched RealityMarkets.com as an easy to use play money prediction market. Since then, RealityMarkets.com has become an active web site who's members have done over 180,000 transactions. When he isn't working on his companies, he leads a dual life as an internationally ranked member of the U.S. Skeleton National Development Team where he is an Olympic Hopeful.
