Description

In the discussion on 30c3, the idea of a crowdfunding campaign came up.

Such a campaign would work on getting funding for a specific new Feature for the Tor Project, be it a new website, specific enhancements to the TBB or Tor, or other things.

It would require:

  1. People to organize it
  2. A specific goal (and comprehensible description of the relevance of that goal) and a price tag for that goal
  3. Pledge tiers (Stickers, Shirts, ...?)
  4. ...?

An example for what a basic crowdfunding could look like would be the GnuPG crowdfunding drive: http://goteo.org/project/gnupg-new-website-and-infrastructure

I would propose to use this ticket for discussion on the topic, and, once a consensus has been reached, to create new tickets for the individual tasks associated with a crowdfunding drive.

Tom mentioned Firestarter, a self-hosted crowdfunding platform with support for payments with credit cards, Bitcoin or Paypal.
