Augur Weekly Report — July 17th
Augur App 1.15.0
This upcoming release contains several improvements to the User Experience:
Excess Categories/Tags Removed. When applying filter settings which would remove all markets within a given category or tag, those tags and categories will now be filtered out from the sub-menu. This is an effort to declutter the discovery process for markets.
Sorting by Liquidity. Previously, some markets with low volume but balanced spreads were being filtered out with the liquidity sort. Now these markets will now pass the filter and will be visible within the UI.
Additionally, there was an issue where; when the liquidity sort was set to include ALL SPREADS; some markets with particularly wide spreads would still be filtered out. Now all markets will display in the UI when sorting by ALL SPREADS.

Pre-Finalization Open Interest: $278,880.58 (1,339 ETH)
CASH Contract: $673,569.17 USD (3,212 ETH)
