This question already has an answer here:
Today I've received several messages of people distributing invites for InitiativeQ.
The first red flag is that the only way to participate is by being invited, which smells like a pyramid scheme. If it was something legitimate, why only allow entering with an invite? Just for marketing purposes?
The second red flag is that it's a thing full of beautiful promises but has nothing concrete at all.
On the other hand:
I don't see the "scammers" getting anything at all out of this: looks like you only have to give your name and email.
There's not an "entry fee" like the usual pyramid schemes.
Apparently reputable people are involved (creators of PayPal)? Does this mean anything?
So what's the point? Is there any logic in this? How does this work?
