Open Collective and Anartist

What is Open Collective?

According to your own Official website, it is described as:

"An online financing platform for open and transparent communities. That provides the necessary tools to collect and share the finances collected with total transparency."

That is, they are a ideal website for which communities (collaboration groups, meetings, open source projects, among others) raise and disburse money in a transparent way for the benefit of its members and registered projects, among those who want to support them.

How It Works

«Open Collective » usually differs from other similar platforms, as it offers a full financial transparencyThat is, you can see where the money is coming from and where it is going. Additionally, it is designed for communities that continually develop products, and not for individual creators or one-off campaign creators.

Finally, the site is self-financed with just a small percentage of the funds raised through the platform, which ranges between 5% and 10%, depending on its fiscal host. And in it, anyone can contribute from anywhere with a simple international credit card, or with donations denominated in the currency of the Fiscal Host. Its developers also detail that payments work in all places where their payment providers, Stripe and PayPal, provide service.

For this reason, on our servers we have installed (and we will install) the tools we need to work and spread our art."
