Legalised begging. You could start a fundraiser on there just for people to pay for your next holiday and people would pay for it for you. Also a way for people to get the money to start a business and the person who donated gets absolutely nothing out of it except the knowledge someone out there is making a profit thanks to you.
Dude 1: Want to fund my business on kickstarter?

Dude 2: No thanks. Id rather buy shares in a company and at least get dividends and the knowledge I can cash in my shares at any time.
