Oculus’s backers on Kickstarter won’t get anything from Facebook buying the company.

Kickstarter model really sucks for investors.

So Facebook bought Oculus VR for $2B. What do the initial Kickstarter supporters get? Nothing.

There is room to innovate here. From what I understand, NXT has the potential to improve on the Kickstarter model by offering shares in addition to the rewards that Kickstarter gives.

Sorry, I should have put this as a reply to the existing Oculus thread. Can mods move?

Mod Edit: Yes we can  ;)
