A New Dawn for YouTube Crowdfunding

A New Dawn for YouTube Crowdfunding

Each month, YouTube receives more than 1 billion unique visitors.
Combined with the regulars, this equals nearly 6 billion hours of video
watching each month. To meet the demand, users upload more than 100
hours of video every minute. Such statistics
illustrate YouTube’s popularity and influence. They also show how vast
an audience exists for filmmakers, gamers, musicians, and other account
holders. To such projects’ benefit, YouTube will soon change the site’s
creator-consumer dynamics by integrating “cards” to major crowdfunding
portals, allowing channels to promote and accept donations directly
through YouTube.
