I thought crowdfunding as an investment is a huge legal issue.
I'm interested in the topic and your first question made me wonder what crowdfunding platforms or projects you have in mind?
1. Please rate the following statements relating to investing in a crowdfunded initiative.
- Because of making an investment I expect to be better off financially in the future.
- I believe that making an investment of my choice will have a positive influence on my net worth in a number of years.
- When making an investment I expect to receive a positive financial return on it.
Kickstarter for instance, afaik it's the most popular crowdfunding platform by far and it explicitly does not allow investing in projects.
Are there platforms out there that have real traction and allow users to make investments in projects/businesses instead of donations/pre-sales?
