Market Subject Matter

Community Guidelines
The following document sets out guidelines for what the Aver community deems to be an acceptable (or unacceptable) use of the Aver Protocol.
In keeping with the decentralised nature of the Aver project, these guidelines have been developed and maintained by Contributors of the project in consultation with advisors to the project and open consultation with the wider Aver community, and are open to continuous input and refinement by the project and the community.
All Participants and Contributors of Aver must abide by the most recent guidelines in this area when interacting with the Aver DEX or the Aver Protocol.

Prohibited Markets

Illegal or immoral Markets

These include Markets based on the occurrence of events such as death, sickness, suffering, violent crime, acts of terrorism, war, or related to a named or identifiable individual not considered to be a public figure where the subject matter of the Market might be considered to belittle, undermine or otherwise harm that individual.

Financial Markets

Aver does not facilitate the exchange of financial assets and should not be used in any way to offer what might resemble a financial asset or derivative subject to any financial regulatory regime in any country, for example commodities regulated by the CFTC in the US, or securities regulated by the US’s SEC.

Events which require a licence, permission or royalties to be paid

Markets of this nature should not be listed unless the individual listing the Market has taken the necessary steps to ensure the Market is listed with appropriate approval and where applicable that the necessary fees are paid to any organisations to permit it.

Asymmetry of information

Markets should not be established by any given user for the purpose of exploiting others due to a clear case of asymmetric information. For example, where the outcome of an event is already known to someone and the Market is initiateds purely to mislead others into speculating against an already certain result.
