The difference between Gnosis and Augur August 19, 2017 at 11:57PM

We are often asked what the difference is between Gnosis and Augur. First of all, this is an indicator of the excellent marketing our friends at Augur have accomplished. However, it also supports our thesis that Augur is not our competitor.
