Polymarket is the leading global information markets platform, where people bet on the most highly-debated topics (Politics, COVID-19, the news, etc.) — producing actionable, unbiased insights on the matters most important to society. Polymarket solves the problem of rampant misinformation in the social news cycle by introducing accountability; letting people put their money where their mouth is and challenge others to do the same. We enable this by hosting liquid markets on popular, contentious topics that leverage the magic of price discovery to serve as realtime, unbiased indicators of collective knowledge.
The product has seen explosive early traction, with over $60m GMV in the past 3 months. We’ve raised $6.5m from Polychain, 1confirmation, Naval Ravikant, Balaji Srinivasan, and more. Based predominately in SoHo, NYC, we pride ourselves on being a team of the most passionate people in the world when it comes to free markets. We think fake news is the most pressing problem in the world today, and we’re mission-driven to create a generational product that solves it. If this resonates with you, we’d love to hear from you!
