How to read in Japanese: Kickstarter

Kickstarter is an American company that operates a crowdfunding website. Crowdfunding is a way for an unspecified number of people to contribute funds through a website to make a project a reality.

Kickstarter is primarily used to raise funds to develop new services and goods. The crowdfunding site operated by Kickstarter is said to be the largest in the world, and is unique in that it also solicits virtual currency projects through campaigns. The site has been designed to enhance credibility by setting rules to ensure that funds will not be received unless the total amount of support reaches the target amount.

Since the service was launched in Japan in September 2017, it has contributed significantly to creating an environment in which Japanese people can participate in crowdfunding for virtual currencies.
