This market resolves positively on the 1st of January, 2030. This question is meant to find out whether Manifold users are incentivized to correctly predict on longer-term markets, and, to some extent, what the implied discount rate is. Note that with Manifold's lending functionality, you can bet the first M$20 for free.

@YohanProYT That part of the description hasn't been updated since Manifold changed how loans worked a few months ago, it's no longer accurate.

@YohanProYT Yeah, it was the same idea as today's loans, but they were limited to M$20, and you got them all immediately rather than 2% per day.

I'm confused, isn't there (strictly dominating) arbitrage with https://manifold.markets/Nu%C3%B1oSempere/this-question-will-resolve-positive-114eccf1cb27 ? Why is this one higher?

Oh, I think I misunderstood the intention here. You're not looking for the true discount rate of M$, you're looking for the residual effects that it has on market probabilities due to there only being a finite number of people who take out loans.

Does this actually measure the discount rate though? There's no downside to buying M$20 of yes, and enough people doing so will drive the price to 100% regardless of what the real discount rate is.
Indeed, the loans were implemented in order to prevent discounting from affecting market probabilities; i.e. to prevent markets from displaying the exact type of behavior that you're trying to get this market to display.
