I am new to this community and I have been studying ethereum for 1 month now. I have signed up @ ethethereum.org with an abstract concept (potential prototype). I would like people to sign up on my platform to earn ether. The problem is, I don't have any either. Nor am I a miner (or interested in doing do). What other way's are there to finance a project? I do know they have the crowd funding route. Are there any others?

An interesting approach to fund a community project is outlined here.

This does however come with the limitation that funding will start only once a minimum viable product exists and is being used. For upfront funding you either need a crowdfunding / ICO or other traditional methods.

  • What do you mean by "only once a minimum viable product exists and is being used" Who says you need a product to earn either.
