The Vesuvius Challenge aims to read the contents of an unopened Herculaneum scroll by the end of 2023. As the deadline draws near, many are curious about the outcome and whether the challenge will be met. This prediction market provides a platform for individuals to weigh in on the challenge's potential success or delay.
The market will resolve if, by 11:59 PM US/Pacific on December 31, 2023, the Vesuvius Challenge organizers officially confirm the successful reading of the Herculaneum scrolls. For a positive resolution, the contents of the scroll must be deciphered and interpreted, with verification from independent experts. If no announcement is made or if the challenge is declared incomplete by the deadline, the prediction market will resolve in favor of the challenge not being met on time.
