From Japan, Phewtick is a very interesting mobile app that earns you real cash just for meeting people. But why would they pay you, just for meeting people? The Phewtick team believes that meeting new people enriches your life. New people have the opportunity to grow into your best friend or lover, who knows? So Phewtick wants to encourage more serendipitous moments and they believe that a good incentive to get out of your comfort zone and meet new strangers is to pay you.

I found it a bit hard to believe, but I had a chat with Founder and CEO Kaz Naya, to see how it really works.
