• Testing out the platform functionality here, but I'm hopeful it'll work well. I'm curious though, does pledging require storing crypto on a bitbacker wallet? Are monthly payments automated? #welcome

  • bitbacker Great questions! 1) We never store any crypto on bitbacker.io, all we ask for is a public key to deliver the pledges to. 1 year, 1 month ago
    bitbacker 2) The monthly payments are grouped together into one easy to make payment and your are sent 2 reminders, 1 late notice, and then a cancellation email. 1 year, 1 month ago
    japananon I see...interesting setup. I'm definitely sharing it with people, esp. in the wake of the PayPal/Patreon/SubscribeStar fiasco. 1 year, 1 month ago
    japananon I hope you guys don't get too much heat from the deplatforming crowd as people come to this platform, but at least there's fewer attack surfaces here. 1 year, 1 month ago
    bitbacker Thank you, really appreciate that! 1 year, 1 month ago
    bitbacker Yes the deplatformers should be discouraged and partially impotent by the lack of a payment processor to target. But definitely not underestimating them! 1 year, 1 month ago
    manumit Sorry if this a dumb question. What are the main advantages of the platform over sending BTC/BCH peer to peer? Is it that all fees get lump together? 1 year, 1 month ago
    bitbacker @manumit That's a great question! I'd begin by asking, have you thought about the question "why does the fiat world need a patreon when they have paypal?" 1 year, 1 month ago
    manumit @bitbacker I can think of some. Allows creators to not manage the finance. Users have one site instead of 5-10 to manage. Built in tiers and apps for easy use. 1 year, 1 month ago
    manumit @bitbacker Is that what you see the advantage being? Or do you have a different vision. 1 year, 1 month ago
    japananon I can see the advantage being convenience. Have all the payments rolled into one transaction, with an automated reminder, means less to keep track of. 1 year, 1 month ago
