A data resource for both project creators and followers. Kicktraq.com was founded by Adam Clark in April 2012. Since starting, Kicktraq has tracked over 39,072 Kickstarter projects with over one million unique individuals per month viewing data generated by Kicktraq.
Shows real-time predictions of the success of Kickstarter campaigns. These predictions are regularly updated to take into account the latest evolution of the campaigns. Some of the factors include tweets about the project (as well as retweets and replies), the number of pledges, and many other factors to statistically predict the outcome of the project. Unlike Kicktraq though, it doesn’t give a figure but the real-time estimated probability of success.
Any project creator that puts the KickingItForward.org URL on their Kickstarter project page is agreeing that they will put 5% of their finished product profits back into other Kickstarter projects.
