Download Augur App

You'll need an Ethereum-enabled wallet to connect Augur to the Ethereum blockchain. The Augur platform currently supports Metamask, Trezor, Ledger, and Edge.

Steps

Choose which Ethereum node you would like to connect to.

If you would like to connect to the Ethereum mainnet, enter the HTTP or websocket address for your desired node. Default configurations for testnets or running a local Ethereum node are available. All configuration options are editable.

After entering your Ethereum node connection information, click Connect.

The Augur App will start syncing with your Ethereum node of choice, and once the sync is complete you can click "Open Augur App" to open the Augur user interface in your browser.

Connect to the Augur App with an Ethereum wallet of your choice.

The Augur platform currently supports Metamask, Trezor, Ledger, and Edge.

Now you're ready to begin viewing markets, trading, or reporting on market outcomes. If you have questions, don't hesitate to join the Augur Discord or submit a suggestion for the in-progress FAQ at [email protected].

NOTE: If you just want to check Augur out on the Rinkeby testnet then no download is required.

Go to dev.augur.net, connect your Ethereum wallet, and you're good to go. Use a Rinkeby faucet to get testnet ETH to play with, and grab some testnet REP on the Augur app's Account page.
