The crowd funding service says, the system shall sell shares in the new company until 100k has been reached or a year passes, in which case the money is returned.
Now, we get competitive pricing, but the timeout is known! However, you get ownership shares. The money collected should climb like a wiener process. I call it a hybrid. like tokenization, block chain; it falls on the boundary between pure cash and smart contracts. Also, if the shares can be re-traded before the contract ends, then is mostly a trading pit.
We should crowd fund a generic trading pit built to the Redneck architecture, a sure winner.
