If you've never owned land in a conversation before, congrats! Now you do.
Ideamarket lets you make money arguing on the internet. Users rate posts to express agreement or disagreement. The more times your posts get rated (high or low), the more you earn. Part social network, part knowledge graph, think of your Ideamarket Posts like "owning land in a conversation."
As a side effect, it's easy to crowdsource credibility for information. Instead of waiting 18 months for CNN to agree with you, you can crowdsource a list of credible individuals who agree with you within hours or days. In retrospect, it will be obvious who was insightful and who was just following trends. Imagine querying the on-chain record of opinions — “Who rated [IMPORTANT THING] above [90% CONFIDENCE] at [EARLY TIME]?”
If you were linked here by an official Ideamarket social account (most likely on Twitter or Farcaster), we've already sent the NFT of your post to your wallet or ENS. The more your post gets rated, the more ETH you'll be able to can claim using the "Available to Withdraw" button at the top.
Your posts never stop earning, as long as users rate them.
