Crowdfunding Science

Stumbled upon a website/concept that I hadn’t heard of before but is quite intriguing.

The website domain is: https://experiment.com/. It allows academics to crowdfund their scientific projects. Their aim is to ‘democratise science’. To date is has raised approximately $9 million for academic projects and has led to 20 published academic papers.

I can see a lot of upsides about initiatives like these. However, this project on “Can our unconscious minds predict the stock market?” raised $26,000…

I have no affiliation with the platform.
