Market curation helps distinguish high-quality prediction markets from lower-quality markets. As with all other features of the Polkamarkets Protocol, market curation is a decentralized, on-chain, process.
POLK holders are able to upvote or downvote markets, providing a signal on the perceived quality of the markets to other individuals and to dapps using the protocol.
Voting happens on-chain, which means that users will pay a small gas fee to the network to execute the transaction. Once the transaction is confirmed, the upvote or downvote will be registered on the blockchain and will be readable by other users and dapps.
The market curation feature is available directly in the Polkamarkets Web Application. POLK holders can click the upvote/downvote arrows in the market list to provide their feedback on the quality or relevance of a prediction market.
Alternatively, POLK holders can use other blockchain clients, such as Moonscan, to interact directly with the smart contract, on Moonriver and/or Moonbeam, to cast their vote on the quality of the markets and/or to retrieve the number of upvotes and downvotes for all markets.
If you wish to participate in market curation, we encourage you to learn and follow the Market Curation Guidelines.
