Could Amanda Palmer be the first music artist to top $1m in a Kickstarter fundraising campaign? She’s well on the way, shooting past $418k just two days after launching her project on the crowdfunding site. This, despite only looking for $100k initially to record a new album, produce an art book and go on tour. She has 28 days to go in her campaign, so it’s going to be fascinating to see just how this snowballs. Here’s the interesting question though: if Palmer thought she only needed $100k for the project, what will she do with the additional $318k+? It’s a nice dilemma for an artist to have, but it highlights one quirk of Kickstarter, which is that with no upper ceiling, people whose campaigns go much better than expected may have to beef up their plans accordingly.
