A project that takes crowdfunding to the next level

On Aug 22, OK Jumpstart will welcome the 7th token sale of Pledgecamp, a blockchain-driven crowdfunding platform that aims at transforming the status-quo of the industry by offering better protection and incentives to both creators and investors.

How It Works

Pledgecamp is a crowdfunding project on blockchain, dubbed Crowdfunding 2.0. This next-generation crowdfunding platform combines decentralized crowdfunding system with blockchain technology, aiming to solve longstanding issues of trust and misaligned user incentives in crowdfunding.
