And that's great, but how about numbers? How many people are using it, partnerships, etc. Considering how long they've been around and how long they've been working on stuff, they are one of the quietest projects out there.
They have like 0 community engagement as far as i can tell.

I don't know, but they do good things for ethereum it's what is important for me.
dappcon is a great exemple of something good for ethereum, they are organizer of this event ( https://www.dappcon.io/ )
> they are one of the quietest projects out there
They post a lot in twitter, update their blog, do some conferences (like devcon)
The part I don't understand about their conditional tokens is where the oracle function comes in. If the token's condition is that Brexit happened, for example, somebody or some thing has to tell the token. How is that protected from manipulation?
yes, oracles are important but we decided that enough projects are working on it (Augur, https://realit.io/, Kleros, https://chain.link/ and many more). With those conditional token you can use any available oracle system.

Ok - trying to make it simple:
Prediction markets will enable a shit lot of markets and we are trying to build the DEX where most of those trades will happen.
> light on actual implementation or technical details.
This post obviously is light on details since it should give an overview. However - there are PLENTY of links in it that give you all the details you want.
