We are so excited to announce our Kickstarter campaign launches today! There are many awesome rewards you can receive for backing us. We tried to make it attractive for everyone at all financial levels. This is not for us to be able to launch the app – we repeat it is NOT going to affect the app’s launch.
The short and sweet of it is that we decided to crowd-source funding for our next round of Machine-Learning Training and other costs, so we could very quickly update and improve the app once we are on the market.
We are doing this instead of seeking outside money that would require a bank or venture capitalist(s) to own part of the company. This allows us to remain true to our vision of working towards an ethically-sourced crystal community without worrying too much about the bottom-line for investors who may pressure us to compromise for profit early on.
