Keybase: Essentially Free money

in #steemleolast year (edited)

Today I got an invite from one of my friend for Keybase app. He was impressed with end to end encryption for all chats and files shared but I am not too impressed with the feature. It's already offered by apps like whatsapp and I really don't chat about anything so secretive with anyone that i would need to worry about prying eyes.


Keybase seems similar in concept to Brave where they are building a replica app of something that's widely used and improve upon it. I can see a use case for Keybase app and it may become popular over time.


Keybase is airdropping about 2 billion Stellar over a period of 2 years. As of today that's about 600+ stellar each. I am not very optimistic on the price of stellar just because there are so many of them so I am going to sell everything i get from this airdrop to buy more ethereum or bitcoin. Even steem feels like a better investment right now than stellar.

How to get the airdrop

  1. Click on this link: This is my private invitation link but i don't suppose i get anything. You may be able to go to the site directly and download as well.
  2. Follow the simple signup process.
  3. Install Keybase on 3 devices.
  4. Sign up for the airdrop under wallet.

I did one extra step, i.e. to connect my github. I read somewhere that was one of the requirement but i did not see that while doing the above steps.

Hope this is helpful to someone...
