Hard to believe that a few short months ago, many
in the bitcoin space thought Ethereum would always be Vaporware. This feeling was so prevalent that TechCrunch, the largest outlet for tech-related news, refused to cover anything about the platform, including apps developed on it. Of course, upon Ethereum's Frontier release, this changed as TechCrunch finally acknowledged the project in a piece titled "Vapor No More"
, one that also was kind enough to mention Augur! Throughout the year many would ask me why Augur was being developed on Ethereum and my answer was exactly what Jack and Joey told me, it was easier to develop on as minor changes didn't create massive problems as they did with Bitcoin.
