In the words of Zack Hess, Amoveo is a result of lessons learned from prior coins such as Augur. Zack, better than others, knows their weaknesses and is trying to address them. His key idea is to get detailed requirements from the initial users, adapt the project accordingly and then advertise it to new users.
Here is a quote from Zack:
“With this kind of new technology, there are many things that we do not know. We need to avoid making assumptions about how the technology will be used. We need to listen to users and adapt to their needs. We need to investigate many possible use-cases to see which will be popular first.”
Nevertheless, there are already a number of specific improvements in Amoveo as compared to Augur, Gnosis and HiveMind. First, Amoveo does not use sub-currencies, exclusively relying on VEO. In contrast, Augur contracts are done in Ether (ETH), while its own token (REP) is only used to pay for oracles. Similarly, Bitcoin HiveMind is built atop of Bitcoin (BTC) Lightning channels. Gnosis has two proprietary tokens GNO and OWL (the latter tethered to the dollar) with a complicated award payment system. Amoveo does not depend on other networks and utilizes a single token including for funding oracles. The oracles are an integral part of the network and are cheap. Second, Amoveo has its own Lightning channel like Bitcoin, which makes for virtually instant transactions and low commissions. Third, Amoveo uses combined markets with two oracles instead of one (allows nine probably outcomes versus three). As a result, we have, perhaps, the most convenient smart contract among the existing blockchain networks.
