Kickstarter calls itself "the world's largest funding platform for creative projects." And last month, it rolled out a new page to share its data.
The site says its numbers are updated at least once a day. Right now:
Seven completed projects have raised more than $1 million. Another recently passed that milestone... and did it in record time. Ouya, a video game project, hit seven figures in just 8 hours and 22 minutes.
Another tech project is hoping to have similar success. The online comic, Penny Arcade, is seeking $1 million to go ad-free.
Don't forget, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing deal. So Penny Arcade won't get a penny unless it reaches its goal.
The site's co-founder, Yancey Strickler, spoke to us back in March.
Actually, Penny Arcade's goal on Kickstarter is $250,000, not $1m. If they receive over $1m they'll go fully ad-free, but at $250,000 they take down the main ad off the homepage. Since they've reached their Kickstarter goal already, they'll receive everything above that figure, so it's incorrect to say they need to reach $1m.
