This market is intended to help learn which organizations focused on cryonics, or more generally brain/body preservation, are the best targets for donations. (It is not about the best organizations to choose to cryopreserve yourself, that would be a separate market.) This could include organizations focused on e.g. research, outreach, etc. in addition to those that directly perform cryopreservations. Context: https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/topics/cryonics You are highly encouraged to include comments with discussion, analysis, links, etc. I will attempt to resolve based on this discussion. Resolution: This market resolves to the top organization(s) weighted by assessed expected impact, based on a combination of market consensus and analysis posted in the comments. If neither I nor the market are able to make a reasonable effort at such an assessment, the market resolves N/A so it'll basically be a discussion thread instead of a market. This market can consider both nonprofits and for-profits, and can also take a broad view of contributions including donations, investments, and direct work.

Thanks for the suggestions! Nectome looks quite promising. And it's definitely a good point that xrisk reduction is highly relevant to the success of brain preservation as well as the long-term value it delivers. Resolved to market probabilities.
