A friend of mine has sent me an "invite" to sign up to something called "Initiative Q". Seemingly the guys who started PayPal have now started this Bitcoin like payment method called "Q's". Signing up gets you some free Q's, which they say could end up at the prices Bitcoin reached. I have no idea about any of this stuff, but am I worth signing up to this bullshit for free just in case it takes off or is it in fact one huge scam that I'd be better off avoiding?

It's run by a guy called Saar Wilf who sold his business, Fraud Sciences to Paypal, he wasn't a founder. Here's some stuff about it, it seems to be about pyramid data mining, sounds dodgy, but you probably won't lose anything. I don't know much about this stuff either.

Joined with your link.

Most airdrops like this are a waste of time, but worth a shot for all the time it takes. Interesting enough background to them anyway.

Me too

Cheers all.

Anyone else who still wants to sign up, the link is still active from my previous post. It has absolutely no impact on terms of what it requires from you. I've yet to receive a single piece of spam or correspondence regarding it..

How many referrals do you need to get? That's what's putting me off.

No minimum. It gives more Q for every referral you approve.

might as well put mine here then

I'll have no chance of unimagined riches then, I'm not on any other social media and P+B will be all hoovered up. Offline friends would likely say gtf or sure, maybe...

Effective data mining for mass population interconnections though. I won't be bitter if you all get rich!

What are these crypto currencies values based on? Have recently been looking at switching some of my savings into a more tangible assets in light of rumours of the US $ value collapsing.
