Augur (v1) Launches

3 years ago

4 min read

The REP migration has been successfully completed. New production REP has been minted to all 56,338 unique accounts that held REP at the time of 11:01AM PT on July 9th, 2018. The transaction that froze the old REP contract indefinitely can be seen here.

REP Token Contract Address:

The new REP token contract address can be found deployed on the Ethereum main network below:

REP Token Contract: 0x1985365e9f78359a9B6AD760e32412f4a445E862

Exchanges, wallet providers, block explorers and other services that interact with REP will be updating the REP contract address over the coming day. If you’re using a service that is not reflecting the new REP token contract, please send them a message and let them know.

REP transfers will cost slightly more gas than transfers on the old contract due to additional logging. Please be sure to estimate gas properly when sending REP token transfers.

Note : The new REP token contract was created by another Augur contract, and the source code cannot currently be verified by EtherScan. The new REP token source code can be found on the Augur Core GitHub repository, located here. If you‘d like to verify the new REP token contract manually, a technical explanation can be found here.

The REP contract is also no longer pauseable, meaning all future updates to Augur will require a new Augur contract deployment, and a manual opt-in migration of REP (aka, an opt-in hard fork).

Augur App Release:

The final release of Augur App has been published to the Augur Github repository below. Users must download Augur App and run it locally on their machine. There is no hosted or centrally served deployment of the Augur reference user interface or Augur Node that connects to the Augur protocols contracts on the main Ethereum network. Users must run these services and software themselves.

Download the latest release of Augur App below:

Augur Desktop Electron Application. Contribute to AugurProject/augur-app development by creating an account on GitHub.

The release notes include instructions on how to run Augur App. Augur App bundles the Augur reference user interface and Augur Node together into a double-click deploy process locally on your machine, and allows you to connect to an Ethereum node of your choice. This can be a locally run Ethereum node, or a remote node service such as Infura.

Please report all bugs and issues as GitHub Issues in their respective repositories so the Augur community can assess, manage and fix them.

Augur App | Augur Client | Augur Node | Augur Core

Note: If you’ve installed a previous pre-release of Augur App locally on your machine, you will need to clear your configuration file in order to properly run the new Augur App and connect to the main Ethereum network. The location of the configuration file for each operating system can be found in the Augur App release notes.

The words of support received today are highly appreciated. Augur couldn’t have been built and deployed if it wasn’t for the hundreds of unique contributors, community members, software developers, hackers and advocates who have backed and worked relentlessly towards this vision for the past three years.

Please bear with the software developers and maintainers in the early days, as there will undoubtedly be compatibility issues, bugs, and a learning curve for new users of decentralized applications.

You can assist by jumping into Github issues and provide initial triage or fixes, answer others’ questions in the Augur Discord or Subreddit, or by providing helpful content for others, just as some examples. Augur is built from the ground up to be owned and operated by the people that use it. You don’t need to be an all star software engineer or specific type of power user to push the Augur protocol forward, anyone can.
