I eagerly went there. Alas, at these gas prices Augur is practically unusable for non-whales. Just the account activation would have cost $40 in transaction fees. On their reddit channel they suggested integrating a L2 solution to bring down gas fees is next, but given their glacial speed of development, I am not holding my breath. Pity, I was ready to bet.
Some people are working on putting shares in popular Augur markets into liquidity pools vs Dai on Uniswap. This could bring down trading costs for smaller orders before a full L2 scaling solution (probably based on Matic) becomes available in Augur v3.
