For average debates, winners could walk away with a few dollars, high profile debaters such as if, Neil Degrasse Tyson were to debate a flat-earther and managed to receive 1 million donations of .02 cents, the winner would take $20K. Users are encourage to share the debate on social media promoting their view on a subject. People not debating can view the debaters conversation and can also chat with each other in an open chat form. Debaters can write 10 post each (1000 characters each) taking turns with each post.
