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 - so better to join early).
Signing up is free and they only ask for your name and an email address. There's nothing to lose but if this payment system becomes a world leading payment method your Qs can be worth a lot. If you missed getting bitcoin seven years ago, you wouldn't want to miss this. Join here.

I’m proud to announce a new initiative, YouTube Learning, through which we’re providing grants and promotion to support education focused creator content, expert organizations and learners. We're also expanding our learning content team efforts and have a newly dedicated product and engineering team working on building out features for learning on YouTube. Our hope is to support those who use YouTube to share their knowledge with the world and the millions of users who come to our platform to learn.
The $1 million Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition
Join Data 360's team to compete for a $1 million prize pool with X Prize.
More than 36 million adults in the U.S. lack basic English literacy, yet only five percent have access to educational services.
Low literacy impacts the well-being of individuals, families and communities.
If you are interested in joining Data 360 on this wonderful challenge to help adults learn to read, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to join our X Prize team is Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at 5 pm.
About the competition
The $1 million Adult Literacy XPRIZE Communities Competition challenges communities and organizations across the country to empower adults with low literacy skills to download and use a free, effective, convenient and private mobile learning tool. XPRIZE will provide the educational apps – you just have to get them into the hands of learners.
You know your communities and constituents best, and we need your innovative ideas for reaching low-literacy adults that seek to improve their English reading skills through free, field-tested mobile apps.
X Prize is awarding $1 million in two phases to transform 1 million lives using our free, proven-effective apps.
In Phase 1, tell us how you will revolutionize adult education in your community. We will award $10,000 each to the 50 teams with the best proposals.
In Phase 2, the three competitors who recruit the most people to download and use these free, proven-effective apps will win a share of an additional $500,000.
As a competitor, you will tackle the problem of adult low-literacy in your community by putting free learning tools in the hands of those who need them most, so learning can happen anytime, anywhere.
