The prediction market platform will allow STX holders to predict and trade the outcome of events in almost any imaginable category including finance, sports, politics and even the weather. Using smart contracts, users who correctly predict the result are awarded STX coins based on the probability of that outcome, the size of the crowd participating in that event, and the initial pledge.

Stox, as noted last month, is using the Bancor protocol to guarantee liquidity for the STX token. The Group, the owner of Stox, is issuing the STX token while holding BNT in reserve.
