    Well, the most active were buyers from the USA ($ 663 million), the UK ($ 54 million) and Canada ($ 45 million).

    1.7 million people, that is 29.6% of users, funded more than one project, and 15 932 activists funded more than 50 projects. Repeated Buyers secured $ 619 million of the total billion investments. 86%the collected money went to real financing of projects, the rest fell on unsuccessful projects, for which it was necessary to return funds. Although, the number of unsuccessful projects (74 047) actually exceeds the number of successful (57 128).

    Interestingly, most money is donated on Wednesdays.
