WeiFund is decentralized, secure, open-sourced, non-profit, and interoperable crowd-funding platform that was founded by Nick Dodson in 2015, and is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. WeiFund allows members to launch their own crowdfunding campaigns using WeiFund's smart contract template or from one's own smart contracts. Each crowdfunding campaign can be incentivized using rewards such as equity or physical objects just like traditional crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo. The WeiFund platform is built on top of the Ethereum blockchain and is a spoke within the ConsenSys decentralized application (dApp) ecosystem.
