GPM is the chosen Solution because of the IEM model that made of Market, Outcome, and Shares. Googlers/ Users will look at the Market and buy a share to predict if the outcome will win for each quarter. Also, GPM does not use real money in the buying and selling, they will use play money called Goobles. Rewards will be a t-shirt and $1,000 in cash for each quarter.
