|So I just got this email from Coinbase:|
Coinbase just sent you 0.002329 BTC (worth $0.99 USD) using Coinbase.
Thank you for applying to YC in the most recent batch! We're sending $1 of bitcoin to everyone who applied.

It is very nice that they plan to give $1 to every applicant of the most recent YC batch, but I certainly did not applied for YC. I just sent them an email asking them if it is a mistake. In the mean time, I am curious if anyone else here got a similar message. Did you actually have applied to YC's last batch?
P.S.: someone asks question about whether this email is from Coinbase.

P.P.S.: aspHax0 below mentioned "I got this as well. However, I applied to be placed as an intern at a YC company over the summer.". I applied, too. That is certainly interesting.
