Easy Start Guide
Just 3 steps!
Explore Ideamarket on any device, but the best experience for participating happens on Desktop, with the Metamask browser extension.

Being an early user lets you:

  • Be first to post your idea (this can earn you ETH). All the ratings your post receives will pay you ETH you can withdraw whenever you want. Share the post with your followers, and if they rate it — either high or low! — you get ETH.
  • Win our contest. We won Arbitrum Odyssey, so in October they’ll send 1000+ users to rate 10 posts that we choose for them. We’ll choose at least 3 popular posts by users to be included in that 10. If we choose one of yours, you could easily earn up 1 ETH in rating fees from that.
  • Gain more Twitter followers easily. The more posts you rate, the more you'll be recommended to other users who share your beliefs. This is an easy way to get discovered on Twitter and other social platforms, and effortlessly build your tribe. After rating a few posts, check the "Similar Users" tab of your profile to see your recommendations. (Learn more)

    • Buy ETH on a popular exchange like Coinbase or Binance, then use hop.exchange to transfer it to Arbitrum — OR —
