Crowdfunding service Kickstarter’s global expansion is continuing: yesterday the company opened up to new projects in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Ireland. Creators can start uploading their projects to Kickstarter now, although they won’t go live until 21 October. “From LEGO to Röyksopp to The Seventh Seal to James Joyce, these countries have contributed some amazing stuff to our world. We can’t wait to see what’s next,” as the company put it in a blog post. As before, there won’t be specific country sites for Kickstarter: new projects will simply filter into the wider community, although potential backers can search for them by location. Local currencies are used for pledging in all four new countries, with creators encouraged to include an English version of their description and rewards, to find a global audience.
