[EN] Development of a distributed crowdfunding platform on Ethereum

Abstract

Betfunding is a decentralized crowdfunding platform that uses bets instead of donations to support artistic production and creative work.

Unlike other crowdfunding platforms, in Betfunding the investors are the ones that suggest a project and look for creators by the creation of a bounty for their work. Anyone can become a creator of a project if she pays a deposit as a commitment to the users. The success or failure of a project will be determined by a trusted third party designated at the beginning of the project that can be a person or an automated system.

The platform has been developed on Ethereum, a Bitcoin-like technology that allows to manage money with cryptocurrencies and to develop decentralized applications. The use of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies avoid the need for a trusted central authority to send and keep the money charging fees. Instead of that, it is done through a peer-to-peer network in a transparent and secure way.
