@BioBot Nice! These are some good questions. - I think human intervention should be discouraged for this competition, because it is supposed to be about bots. However, a few one-off interventions wouldn't disqualify you. - Hmm, I would say for this competition, the bots should not create markets. You could have a separate bot that creates markets and we could give it a grant. - Yes! Feel free to create multiple different bots. They would all be eligible to win prizes. And hopefully most would.
This is a great idea! I just created an account and tested the limit bot and it works. I have a few questions: - I was testing out the API, bought some shares, and then sold them manually without thinking. The question is about disqualification on manual bets; I'm hoping I'm not disqualified(?), and for example would a bot that sends a notification when it wants to make a bet and requires human approval be allowed? Like the bot finds out what market it wants to be it, but human has last minute veto? I'm guessing it’s not allowed, but just asking anyway. - Are we allowed to automatize the making of markets using the bot? Often the market creator has an advantage when creating these sorts of markets and betting in them (even without insider info), and especially if they have rapid response time. Is it allowed to create a bot that creates markets automatically and bets automatically and resolves correctly automatically? - Am I allowed to make multiple bots? I want to try out multiple strategies I think are promising and see how they do, but if I put all of the strats on a single bot it won’t be informative about which strategy works best because of destructive interference. Anyway, thanks for organizing this and good luck to all participants!
