Getting Goteo approval

Posted 18th December 2013 by Sam Tuke

Pending project on Goteo

The targets are set, the rewards are prepared, the press release has been edited and translated, and now we’re waiting for approval from the crowdfunding platform Goteo.

Goteo is like indiegogo, but more forward thinking. It has a special focus on communal benefits and rewards - projects that benefit society as a whole, not just project donors (though they can get special rewards too).

Every ’good’ produced by a campaign on Goteo, be it artwork, software, event, or manufactured product, has a license assigned to it, like GPL or Creative Commons, and as well as asking for money, projects ask for other forms of help called “non-economic needs”, like translations or product testing. Goteo’s own source code is Free Software too, meaning anyone can run their own Goteo crowdfunding server. That’s the feature that swung our decision to use it for GnuPG.

Because the type of project on Goteo is quite specific however, the acceptance phase of launching crowdfunding is taking us longer than expected. Right now we’re working with Goteo’s small team to answer questions which aren’t on the webforms you fill out when you design your project with their system.

I’m hoping to provide what’s necesasry and get acceptance quickly. As soon as we have it the crowdfunding will launch and newsletter subscribers and Twitter followers will be the first to know.
