  Guba to pay users

Video sharing site and YouTube competitor Guba aims to pay users who send new users their way. For every person that signs up through your link (which could be from a Guba video you posted somewhere or a link to the site you used in a post somewhere) Guba will pay you $0.25. Will it work? They're getting good blogsphere coverage for this so if anything, they're getting some free press. As far as the long term sustainability I'm not so sure. Sooner or later people are going to try and game the site and trick Guba but siging up a whole bunch of fake accounts. Also, if it does take off, is it really a good idea to pay your users when the only way you make money is from contextual text ads? I guess we'll find out.
