I found a similar question here about a crowdfunding site for home automation scripts. Most of my request is the same, except it's for a broader use case.

Use Case: I often find myself wishing for products that don't exist. I would use this app to find like-minded people who are all willing to back said product. But Kickstarter / IndieGogo would not work because if I create a project, I have to fulfill it. I would like to create a project, but someone else would step up to build it. Step up is a loosely used word; I don't know how that part would actually work; I just took a stab at it. Adopt? Bid? Maybe the executer would bid on the project, like what happens with projects on Thumbtack and Fiverr. But Thumbtack and Fiverr (and UpWork, and ...) won't work because I become the sole backer when I post a project. Also Thumbtack doesn't have an app.


  • Backers have the ability to post a project.
  • All the normal features of crowdfunding.

Budget I would gladly pay to use an app like this. I would not expect to pay more than a 3% fee on pledges, and not more than a $20 annual membership fee. Ads would be ok. I'm not looking for free or libre software, but that would captivate my heart.

OS Android. But if it exists in iOS or some other platform, I would really like to know, and I might switch to that platform so I could experience this just once. This doesn't have to do with anything, but it would be super wicked awesome if it were built on Ethereum's app platform.

    Please note that website recommendations are off-topic here (see: Can I ask for recommended websites?). There's currently no other SE site covering this topic either, so you need to look for other resources (e.g. forums) for that. – Izzy Aug 17 '17 at 6:47
  • Thanks, I missed that detail. I was wondering why the one I linked to was off topic, and I thought it just missed some of the things int the 'my intuition is all wrong' question. – user28479 Aug 17 '17 at 18:13
  • Sometimes not easy to see, yes. When in doubt, a good choice is browse the scope tag on our Meta site :) – Izzy Aug 17 '17 at 20:08
