Why have you settled Donald Trump as a loss?

Our markets were based off the winner of the electoral college vote. Our terms and conditions, and market blurbs stated that Bets on who will win the United States’ Presidential Election will be determined by the candidate winning 270+ electoral college votes. Today (15 December Aus Time), with all states certified, and all electors having cast their votes, Joe Biden received 306 Electoral college votes, whilst Donald Trump received 232 electoral college votes. For a candidate to win, they are required to receive 270 electoral college votes. As Donald Trump did not receive the requisite number of votes, we believe he has lost the election, and has subsequently been settled as such.

What about the remaining Court challenges?

Our markets were based off of the winner of the electoral college vote. Our terms and conditions, and market blurbs stated that Bets on who will win the United States’ Presidential Election will be determined by the candidate winning 270+ electoral college votes. Notably, there are very few court challenges left, states have certified their results, safe harbour deadlines have passed, and electoral college votes have been cast. As we settle our markets off the winner of the electoral college vote, we are comfortable settling following the 50 states and D.C. casting their votes on 15 December (Aus time).

What about ‘voter fraud’? “The election was stolen” so my bet should be a win or a void?

Nearly 60 cases have been litigated in front of American courts of all jurisdictions, and they have found no credible evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the election. Bets will be settled as a loss accordingly, and not a void. You are able to view all of the previous lawsuits here: https://www.democracydocket.com/

What if Congress does not approve the electoral college vote or if Joe Biden is not inaugurated?

Our markets were based off the winner of the electoral college vote (i.e, the winner of the election, not the candidate inaugurated). Our terms and conditions, and market blurbs stated that Bets on who will win the United States’ Presidential Election will be determined by the candidate winning 270+ electoral college votes. We believe Joe Biden has met that threshold, and we consider him the winner of the 59th U.S. Presidential Election. We would look to potentially reconsider this call should the Congress meet and both houses not formally certify the results.

What about faithless electors?

Per our blurbs on our markets, faithless electors will not count in market settlement.

Where can I find result links to the markets?
