Partnering with CSPI and Salem Center UT with a $25k research grant up for grabs!
We are excited to announce Manifold Market’s partnership with the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology (CSPI) and Salem Center UT to host our first forecasting tournament!
This is a great opportunity to test the veracity of play money prediction markets and discover if individuals can rise up and prove themselves as being exceptional forecasters. Manifold is particularly excited as one of our goals is to provide value by facilitating the sharing of information and discussion. By hosting a collaborative tournament we hope people from various communities can come together and create a wealth of actionable information.
