About Value Network
Prediction markets is a dynamic form of a derivative – Binary Option. A binary option is a financial exotic option in which the payoff is either some fixed/dynamic monetary amount or nothing at all.
For example: you have the asset (Bitcoin), Strike price (100000 USD), Time of expiration (3 months). So you are predicting whether the price of Bitcoin will be higher or lower than 100K in 3 months. The settlement of the markets is made by the open-source smart-contract, which checks the Chainlink price oracle at the time of expiration of the markets, and transfers the funds of losers to the winner in the proportion of the pool. If, in the example mentioned above, your prediction was 150$ on HIGHER and other participants predicted 135$ for LOWER, you get 135$ as the return to your 150$ prediction, as you have 100% of the pool. If someone would have joined you on HIGHER with extra 150$, you would get 67,5$ as you proportion of the pool would be 50%.
