Crowdfunding service Kickstarter presented statistics for 2020, which turned out to be a record for the platform. For the first time, more than $ 730 million was raised to support video and board games, various social projects, technologies, comics, films and more.

This is $ 115 million more than in 2019 and 33 times more than in 2010.

Nevertheless, there were significantly fewer successful projects, and their number continues to fall. A total of 18,642 campaigns managed to raise money, the rest failed to interest backers. This is almost 800 projects less than in 2019.

However, the number of campaigns is also falling: in 2014 there were 77,486, in this one – “only” 37,581.
