Welcome to the epistemic revolution

Ideamarket creates high-quality public knowledge
without relying on corporate media.

Public narratives shouldn't be decided by private interests.

Ideamarket takes the power back.

How it works
An Unstoppable Marketplace

"Rationality is risk management." —Taleb

1. Websites are ranked by amount invested.

Increased trust leads to visibility, creating credibility backed by public risk — not by corporations.

2. Top-ranked websites earn interest for their supporters.

All deposits earn 2-10% interest, which is aggregated and given only to supporters of top websites.

3. Websites are impossible to remove from the list.

Ideamarket runs on a distributed network called Ethereum — like Bitcoin, there are no central servers that governments can shut down.

Think of it like Reddit, only:

1) Upvotes are bets

2) No admins, mods, algorithms, shadowbans, or centralized servers

3) Can't be stopped

Why it works
The Epistemic Revolution

When seeking narratives, we naturally seek authority.

When seeking investments, we naturally seek value.

Therefore, the best way to choose public narratives is with investment.

Create productive discourse

by making mutual understanding a financial necessity

Undermine propaganda

by moving money (and trust) from platforms that imitate insight to those that truly provide it

Solve fake news effortlessly

by making credibility extremely expensive to fake

What to do next

1. Buy tokens.

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
