! Initiative Q is an attempt by ex-PayPal guys to create a new payment system to replace credit cards. It uses its own currency, "Q", and to get people to start using the system once it's ready they're allocating Qs for free to people that sign up now. Signing up is free and they only ask for your name and an email address. Nothing to lose but if this payment system becomes a world leading payment method a Q can be worth a lot. Here is my invite link:

@smiddi No. They, like everyone else, will change the world™. ;)

I guess so, but "free coins" has worked pretty well for me in the past, so…

@carlo I bit, against my better judgement. 😆 My GMail address should be pretty obvious (variant on my old handle).

@andy Cheers. The last time I did something like this, it was for Stellar (XLM) which at some point were worth *actual* money. That was a nice surprise.

Good luck to us, then. :)

@mastohost Already done. Let's see how Q turns out. Sounds like it has ambitions to be the next Paypal, so I'll be watching closely.

@carlo I have heard about it here and there in the crypto community but haven't had the time to look into it. Let's see! I will gladly use an alternative to PayPal :)

@thomasfuchs Pretty much on par with most other invite-only systems, isn't it?
