A stock market for your hourly rate.

Each token is worth 1 hour of your time.

Honor your token when it reaches your preferred hourly rate.

A buyer streams 1 token back to you over the course of 1 hour.

If you don't deliver, users can sell your token back to the bonding curve at a lower price, devaluing your time.

If you get rich, you can buy your time back.

1.

Trust is valuable.
Why do corrupt institutions get it for free?

2.

Ideamarket ensures credibility is costly,
just like Bitcoin ensures money is costly.

— How it works —
Credibility via price discovery

Buy what you trust.

Ideamarket works like reddit — but upvotes cost money, and increase in cost in proportion to supply.

Sell what you don't.

Sell your votes at their current price and withdraw your money at any time.

Earn interest in between.

While your money is in the market, it earns at least 2% annual interest, which is aggregated and given only to voters of top-ranking websites.

As the market grows, credibility becomes too expensive for publishers to buy outright. Publishers who earn it, crowdsource the cost.

Where does my money go?

When you buy votes on Ideamarket, your money is deposited into software that acts like a bank. It offers secured loans to others, and pays interest on your deposit. Interest is distributed to the owners of top-ranking sites on Ideamarket. You can sell your votes at their current price and withdraw your money at any time.

How is Ideamarket unstoppable?

Ideamarket is built on Ethereum — software that behaves like financial institutions, completely without human involvement. Think “Napster for finance.” Ethereum is maintained by thousands of peer-to-peer nodes, so it's virtually impossible to shut down. Transacting on Ethereum has its own risks, but they're mostly technical instead of counterparty risks.

The Epistemic Revolution

Until now, courageous thinking has been a proposition of high risk and low reward.

By making credibility an asset class, Ideamarket rewards people for courageous thinking — for performing investment-grade due diligence on competing narratives.

A highly discriminating public, backing its opinions with capital risk, in turn forces publishers to compete for credibility—as the public defines it.

What to do next

The first 10,000 are $1 each, and the price increases by $0.01 per 100 thereafter. [How?]

2. Explain to your audience how Ideamarket amplifies their voice.

Offer to match your audience's purchases up to $10,000 per month to show your commitment to earning trust long-term. Ask them to download the Ideamarket browser extension. We've provided articles here to help.

3. Occasionally sell tokens to fund operations.

As demand for your token increases, its value will too — turning trust in your brand into effortless income.

“If we care for certain things, we must in honesty hazard some hope in their defense. A good deal of what we value most, whether openly or in silence, clearly or confusedly, is necessarily common. These are things that affect us all, and we can only preserve or neglect them together.” —Jedediah Purdy, For Common Things
