Pikum

Backed by First Round Capital and Virgin, Pikum is a new kind of betting game created and played between friends online. It can be played for fun, or where possible, money. It’s simple, social, fun, and hopes to capitalize on people’s love of predicting, debating, and bragging when they’re right.
