Frequently Asked Questions
Why bet to not win money?
To not lose money. Seriously, athletes practice and it doesn't count but it makes them better. Predicting outcomes is fun. When you have something on the line, even if it is pretend money, you tend to enjoy the game more. Instead of seeing who won, betting helps to explore why they won or lost.
Sports opinions are a lot of hot takes and hot air. Betting lines bring clarity - the truth of who is better. Outcomes prove who is right.
It doesn't take money to get smarter.

When I released a previous version of the buying sports teams feature, I realized few people have actually bought individual stock. As important as the stock market is, it is inaccessible to many.
I wanted to make the easiest way to simulate buying stock for selfish reasons yes - I want you to use my app. However, if I can empower one person to take charge of their financial future by helping them learn the stock market, the sacrifice it took to make Get QX will be worth it.
Buying players is kind of distasteful, no?
Yeah, it kind of is. Seeing a buy button next to LeBron James doesn't sit right. Changing the button to 'Pick' conjures the same imagery.
I assure you, there is no ill intent.
