‘Crowd-funding’ only getting started

From Pacific Standard magazine: “The new trend of ‘crowd-funding’ online is remaking how money flows between artists and their fans. By gathering small amounts from many sources and aggregating it into more meaningful sums that are donated to single causes, crowd-funding sites are directly supporting creators who had previously relied on advertising or traditional publishing for income. And the crowd-funding economy is only just getting started. One report estimates that by 2025, crowd-funding will hit $93 billion annually.”
