Bars that let people pay for their drinks by coming up with original ideas and sharing them with the world. The sponsor handles the verification of originality and reimburses the bar for the drinks.
  • A fun activity/challenge for people in bars.
  • A brainstorming starter for a group of friends when they try to get out of paying.
  • Tons of new ideas become available for everyone. Some can potentially make the world a better place.
  • An advertisement campaign for a sponsor that wants to attract creative people.
How it works
A sponsor like the Brainstorming platform teams up with various bars worldwide. They make it possible for anyone to pay for their drink by sharing an original idea with the world.
The idea can be used instead of money if it meets the following criteria:
  • original (conceptually meaningfully different from what already exists or has been described before)
  • explained in a way that the bartender can understand
  • useful to someone (explain how it solves a problem for them)
  • sounds feasible
As soon as possible, the bar posts all collected ideas on the open Brainstorming platform and credits them to the original ideators (if they want to be named). In so doing, the ideas become public with attribution to the original ideator.
Originality check
The bartender goes online and describes the idea on the Brainstorming #slack. Any of the many ideators there do quick searches on Google and reply with references if they find that the idea/concept already exists.
It's in the sponsor's best interest to always have good people present on the "idea verification" slack. They have to research fast. They may need to hire professional researchers if there aren't enough volunteers present at all times.
The bartender might be too busy to do any research him/herself or even describe the idea via text. In that case they post a voice memo in the chat for people there to research.
Free drink
If within 5 minutes neither the brainstormers, researchers, or the bartender (via google) can find the idea as already existing in the proposed form, the person gets a free drink of their choice.

Instead of or along with BTC bounties, what if users (winners and the others) were rewarded with free drinks in bars that have the Brainstorming badge (as Goran Radanovic mentioned in the comment)?

This would work even better with marijuana bars, like the ones in Amsterdam. It would be a far more fertile ground for idea flow. Yet, it would require a really tolerant bartender as stoner ideas can often be frustratingly bad as often as they are originally awesome.

Could work. The bar would have to kit out the place with Brainstorming's signage, barman wearing Brainstorming t-shirts and participants have to post their ideas on social media to promote Brainstorming.
People associate brands with experiences and feelings. If you combine your brand with many people's favourite hobby (drinking), they're likely to think of it whenever they want a drink.
They might say, "Let's go to that Brainstorming bar place."
