The global crowdfunding was valued at $6,158.5 million in 2017 by P&S Market Research. MRC is estimated to reach $66.68 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 58.3%, as predicted in June 2016 by Stratistics MRC.
Fundraising, guaranteed
WHIRL brings the entire community’s attention on your campaign. Crowdfunding success rates have plummeted over the last few years; WHIRL’s limited placements, unique karma points incentive system, and global blockchain architecture flip the script and guarantee a successful raise.
Today you, tomorrow me
When you contribute to a campaign, you’re instantly rewarded with karma points. When it’s your turn to create a campaign, your karma points determine how quickly it moves through the queue and how much you can raise. WHIRL’s give-and-take economy is a new way to raise money that eliminates fraud and removes the need to ship rewards, take out expensive loans, or ask friends and family for donations.
Powered by the blockchain
WHIRL accepts all major cryptocurrencies, infusing a substantial new source of capital into crowdfunding while also reducing platform fees and doing away with global banking restrictions. Intimidated by the blockchain? Don’t be, we’ve made a platform that’s as easy-to-use as it is secure and powerful.
Socially driven
WHIRL has heart. In keeping with our broader mission of inspiring a whirlwind of change, WHIRL works closely with leading nonprofits and charities around the world, waiving fees, offering white glove support, and providing featured placement and backer bonus incentives.
Open to everyone, everywhere, for any purpose
WHIRL’s mission is worldwide and our platform is open for business no matter your borders, currency, or fundraising purpose (within reason). Crowdfund your art project, home repair, medical expense, scientific endeavor, business pursuit, or dream vacation. Receive support from a global community.

What is WHIRL?
WHIRL is a socially driven, “pay it forward” crowdfunding platform that’s built on the blockchain.
How is WHIRL different from Kickstarter, GoFundMe, etc?
WHIRL is unique in many ways, but here are three major differences: (1) We limit the number of campaigns that can raise money at one time and prioritize them using a fair and transparent queuing system. (2) You can only create a campaign after you’ve contributed to others. And (3) You can transact with cryptocurrency, making WHIRL a truly global platform.
Who created WHIRL?
WHIRL is built by a proven team with diverse experience in blockchain software, crowdfunding, and nonprofit fundraising. For more information, see our Team page.
How long has WHIRL been in development?
Well over a year, with parts of its technology being developed for three years.
Does WHIRL have an MVP (Minimum Viable Product)?
Unlike other blockchain projects, WHIRL isn’t empty, future hype; it’s working today!
Do I need to be a programmer to use WHIRL?
No! While WHIRL uses blockchain technology, it is easy enough for anyone to use, regardless of coding skill. This was important to us because we want WHIRL to be accessible by the widest possible audience around the world.
Where is WHIRL incorporated?
After assessing multiple jurisdictions, WHIRL decided upon Malta for its corporate headquarters. Malta is rapidly becoming the world’s cryptocurrency hub; it has a pro-crypto government and is home to many high-profile blockchain companies.
Is WHIRL a ponzi or pyramid scheme?
No. Given the nature and history of some crypto projects (e.g. Bitconnect), WHIRL’s give-and-take structure might be mistaken for a ponzi scheme or MLM pyramid. This is not the case. To begin with, WHIRL’s hierarchy is dynamic. Once a member rises to the top and completes a campaign, they immediately reset back to the bottom and begin anew. Ponzi schemes and MLM pyramids maintain a fixed hierarchy, which swells and eventually implodes. WHIRL doesn’t promise limitless fundraising either: campaigns are capped based on the amount you’ve contributed to others. There are many other differences, but those are two major ones. WHIRL is building a sustainable fundraising economy; it is not promising get-rich-quick results.
Does WHIRL have a whitepaper?
Yes, you can download it here.
Who are WHIRL’s partners?
WHIRL is in behind-the-scenes negotiations with a number of parties. Currently, the only partner we can disclose is KICK ICO, but many more will be forthcoming.
