It is Easy to Create a Prediction Market at Inkling – See My New Women’s World Cup Prediction Market

I just set up a market for predicting the winner of the Women’s World Cup 2007 tournament, which is kicking off in China this weekend and wrapping up on September 30. (Women’s football/soccer.)

Took me about 45 or 50 minutes, start to finish. A lot of it was just cut-and-paste team names and info. Sixteen teams, each with a name, abbreviation, description, and starting price. A bit of general market information, an image uploaded. The market even includes a link to the official FIFA RSS feed that puts news headlines right on the market page! It was easy to manage.

Check it out!

If you are curious about how prediction markets work, Inkling makes it easy to get started.

(Still haven’t figured out how to embed the Inkling chart widget into a blog post, so the above chart is a static image that links to the market page at Inkling. You’ll have to click through to see the latest prices.

By the way, I also have an MLS Cup market running at Inkling too!)
