Kickstarter is now available to makers in four new European countries: Ireland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
This may have been a more complicated behind-the-scenes feat than it will appear to users. On the question of currency, the company wrote on its blog:
Local currency for everyone! Danish kroner, Swedish kronor, Norwegian kroner, and the euro in Ireland. You can use your local banking and business details, and if your project is successfully funded, pledges will be collected in your local currency and transferred to you.
So Brooklynites could back the Swedish Moobitalk (a handsfree talking device) in dollars and its creator would get paid in kronor.
