Kickstarter, the largest crowdsfinding platform, is not going to support the investment model of the initial coin offering (ICO). This is reported by CoinDesk.

The answer is 100 percent a very firm no. Kickstarter's mission is to help bring creative projects to life. Kickstarter is committed to the arts. (ICO is) not something we looked into or will look into.

Launched in 2009, the platform for all of its existence helped raise $ 3.04 billion for various creative projects, according to official statistics. For comparison, according to CoinDesk ICO Tracker, to date, the total investment in the ICO area was $ 3.8 billion.

In addition, in 2015, Kickstarter changed its legal status to a "public corporation" after a wave of accusations that the site is only interested in making a profit.

This is a relatively new type of registration, which is suitable for companies pursuing socially important goals and simultaneously responsible to shareholders. One of the three co-founders of the platform in the past compared its shares to "ownership of the rights to a popular song."
