Playing Knew The News is completely free. The game uses a virtual, fake currency to allow the player to make predictions on news events. To start with, each user is equipped with $1,000 at registration.
The Knew The News Way
The main idea of Knew The News is derived from the former Hubdub prediction market, which was closed at the end of April 2010.
It's basic outlines where:
- The platform is absolutely free
- Any player may contribute in creating questions
- Playing is simple and fast
The development on the foundations of Knew The News started immediatly after Hubdub's closure, and has the goal to become one of the leading, most innovative, reliable and reputable platform, while still adopting just these basic principles and offer an even easier, and also more extensive gameplay.
Playing Knew The News is (and will always be) absolutely free. The only prerequisite is that the user has to create a user account to login to the website.
The user makes predictions on questions with the goal to receive a reward in return. The basic way to predict is to "put money where your mouth is", eg, buying stakes on the options from which the user assumes that they represent the most likely outcome.
But there are various strategies of how the user can play the game most successfully; some of these are assembled on the Hubdub forum at Getsatisfaction.com.
