Thanks for your feedback, it’s greatly appreciated. Couldn’t agree more with your insight on donors’ behaviors and the impact influencers can have overtime.
Your other arguments are also on point, all those are major doubts I wish to explore further in due time, specifically with respect to user retention and sustained engagement over time.
My opinion however is that engagement should be fueled by the community — Once short term critical mass is reached that is.
This brings me back to your first point: Getting users on board. The only way I envision that concept to become feasible is through extensive initial promotion. That being said, the ideal scenario would be to see it implemented by an existing major institution vs. going the startup route.
In any case, this is only scratching the surface. There are multiple other issues to consider that are unfortunately beyond the scope of a Medium article..
