This is the second update to The Economics of the Asteroid Deflection Problem (Dominant Assurance Contracts)

It took a bit longer than I expected but I finally launched a platform for raising money using Dominant Assurance Contracts: EnsureDone.

Why is it called EnsureDone? Well, we ran a naming contest on, and EnsureDone had the most Keynesian Beauty

We've launched with three projects

If any of these projects sound interesting, remember that

  • If they don't raise enough money you get all your money back + a refund bonus
  • If they do raise enough money you will get the public good.

Pledging is a win-win situation.

If you are interested in producing public goods and using a Dominant Assurance Contract to raise funds apply to have your project featured on EnsureDone!

What's next?

Since I have a product I can sell to people. I'm going to focus the next few months on sales. 

I'm unlikely to post again on LessWrong, so if you are interested in this project join our Discord.

This is really exciting. I’m surprised you’re the first person to spearhead a platform like this. Thank you!

I wonder if you could use a dominant assurance contract to raise money for retroactive public goods funding.

What is the best way to build a liquid market of DACs?
For these to be and competitive a lot of people need to see them.
