Initiative Q is an attempt by ex-PayPal guys to create a new payment system instead of credit cards that were designed in the 1950s. The system uses its own currency, the Q, and to get people to start using the system once it's ready they are allocating Qs for free to people that sign up now (the amount drops as more people join.
Signing up is free, this isn't spam.
I've got 5 invites if anyone wants to join: https://initiativeq.com/invite/S-0i583i7
@sopan the opinions in that article are a bit moot considering no one is really investing into the currency at this point. You have lost nothing by creating an account so if it flops it flops.
@sopan it's also not the first up and coming currency to give itself away for free to try and gain traction.
