Making a prediction for the next round

The Prediction page shows quite a bit of information. Predictions operate in 5 minute rounds. Make your prediction before a round goes live to join in.

Checking the timer

To enter a round of Prediction, you'll want to check how long is left in the current round. You'll find the timer in the top-right area.

If the timer is too low your prediction may not confirm in time, so check there's still plenty of time left before you make a prediction (30 seconds should be plenty, but give yourself more time if you're following along with this guide).

Predicting the next round

When you're sure you have enough time, you can place your prediction for the next round.

1. In the "Next" section you'll see a green Enter Bull button and a red Enter Bear button. Click Enter Bull if you want to predict a rise in price, and click Enter Bear if you want to predict a drop in price.

Each will have a different reward multiplier. The multiplier will change over time as the "Prize Pool" increases depending on people's predictions. The Prize Pool is shown just above the buttons.

We'll choose Enter Bull for this example.

2. A new window will open. In the window, enter the amount of tokens you wish to commit in this round of predictions in the "Input amount" input box to make a prediction. You can also use the slider or click the percentage button if you prefer.

3. Once you've decided the amount to commit, click Confirm and confirm your action in your wallet.

The confirm button will fade out as your transaction confirms. This short wait is why we checked the round timer earlier to make sure we would have time to make our prediction.

4. After your transaction confirms, an "ENTERED" message will appear.

There's nothing left to do now but wait for your Prediction round to go live.

While your entered round is live

A live round will last for 5 minutes. You can watch the price update during the 5 minutes if you'd like.

You cannot change your prediction during a live round, however. You are locked into your prediction from earlier.

Once your entered round finishes

After 5 minutes as the live round, your entered round will finish. Everything is automatic, so there's nothing you need to do to end the round.

Seeing the results

1. As the 5 minutes finish, the "LIVE" section will change to "Calculating". Calculating the results only takes a moment.

2. After a short wait, the finished round will move left and say "Expired". The result of the round will display with either Bull colored in green, or Bear colored in red.

3.If you've been busy and missed the results, you can scroll back a few rounds by clicking the left arrow.

Seeing results for older rounds

If you want to see the results for rounds you've entered that are older than a few rounds, you'll need to follow the steps below to find the results.

1.Click the "Historical" icon on the far right.

2.The History panel will open. By default, you should see your most recent round at the top of the list. Click anywhere in the round to see more information.
