“For the first time, promoters will also be able to offer a share of the profits in a project.”

This plan may implode as hucksters, shysters and other grifters seek to bilk the public with fake projects. We shall see…

Here’s How the New Crowdfunding Rules Will Change Indie Film Financing

The new rules limit the amount of individual investments to relatively small sums, but collectively, they will constitute enough of an investment to make a big difference for many start-ups. Investors with annual incomes or a net worth of less than $100,000 can contribute up to $2,000 or 5 percent of their net worth or income, whichever is greater. Wealthier investors can invest 10 percent of the lesser of their annual income or net worth in these transactions, with a cap of $100,000 over a 12-month period.

Meet The ‘Assassination Market’ Creator Who’s Crowdfunding Murder With Bitcoins

“Even setting aside the immorality of killing, doesn’t the notion of enabling small minorities of angry Bitcoin donors to assassinate elected officials sound like an attempt to cripple democracy? “Of course, limiting democracy is why we even have a constitution,” Sanjuro responds. “Majority support does not make a leader legitimate any more than it made slavery legitimate. With this market the great equalising forces of capitalism have the opportunity to work in politics too. One bitcoin paid is one vote closer to a veto of whatever legislation you dislike.”

Sanjuro didn’t actually invent the concept of an anonymous crowdfunded assassination market. The idea dates back to the cypherpunk movement of the mid-1990s, whose adherents dreamt of using encryption tools to weaken the government and empower individuals. Former Intel INTC -5.43% engineer and Cypherpunk Mailing List founder Tim May argued that uncrackable secret messages and untraceable digital currency would lead to assassination markets in his “Cryptoanarchist’s Manifesto” written in 1992.”
