With the help of technology, developers will transfer the site to decentralized “rails”.
The platform for attracting funding for Kickstarter projects will become decentralized. Bloomberg was the first to write about this. Later, details of the initiative appeared on the platform’s blog.
- According to the publication, the Kickstarter team is creating a new company whose team will develop a decentralized protocol based on the Celo blockchain. The transfer of the platform to it is scheduled for 2022.
“We chose to build the Celo protocol, an open source, carbon-neutral blockchain platform, as the best option in terms of technical capabilities and the breadth of the community. We were inspired by the approach taken by the developers to build the technologies of the Celo ecosystem that they want to see in the world, ”said representatives of the platform for raising funds.
- Kickstarter’s move to a decentralized protocol will be seamless. The principle of user interaction with the platform will remain the same.
- A special laboratory will handle the protocol. It will be created as part of the development of a blockchain version of the platform.
- Recall that Kickstarter was launched in 2009. During the work of the project, more than 200 thousand startups were able to attract funding using the platform in the amount of over $ 6 billion. With the transition to blockchain, developers want to lay the foundation for a decentralized future of Kickstarter.
We will remind, earlier in the network there was information that the platform for financing real estate owners Hometap closed the round for $ 60 million.
