Flipstarter team is not planning to accept campaigns after the initial Full Node campaigns. Please read the article "But who will build the platform?" for more details. In summary, Flipstarter is made so that anyone can run a campaign website by themselves. We also hope that a business will decide to create a full fledged funding platform built on Bitcoin Cash - they are welcome to use Flipstarter technology.
The first version of Flipstarter uses proven, low-risk technology of Electron Cash to make pledges. With this, people who want to pledge large amounts to a campaign can feel safe about their money. Unfortunately the need to use a plugin for the Anyone-Can-Pay technique does make it more complicated than usual transactions.
There are at least two ways it can be easier:
The ecosystem develops a payment protocol that supports Anyone-Can-Pay transactions and also wallets implement that payment protocol. After both of those happen, wallets can read a QR code and handle everything for you, similar to the way Bitpay works.
Flipstarter develops smart contract technology and infrastructure to accomplish the same result as Anyone-Can-Pay without the special transaction type. After that, wallets can read a QR code and handle everything for you. You can read about an example by one of our contributors.
No. After you create the pledge in Electron Cash and submit it to the site, you are done. Flipstarter will be able to use the coin to complete the campaign and your Electron Cash does not need to stay running.
If someone submits a pledge that would result in more BCH than the campaign needs, the pledge will be rejected. This can happen, for example, if more than one person tries to pledge the last part of the campaign at the same time.
