What if instead of a simple kickstarter, where you give money to people and hope they will deliver one day, the backers had the ability to actively manage development?

You back a project for some amount, you get a vote, proportional to that amount.

Anyone can propose a task. Developers then bet on it: what they will do, how long approximately it will take, and the cost.

Backers vote twice: first to accept the task/developer, second to release the funds to the developer once it's finished.

When the funds are released they are subtracted proportionally from everybody's "stake".

Backings are non-refundable, unless the whole project is canceled, which would require independent arbitration of platform admins. This is to protect developers from colluding backers, who won't pay once the task is completed.

One great thing about this is that it merges this platform with sites like uservoice: users can now not only propose/vote on features, but fund them.

There should be an ability to back a specific task, then you don't need votes of all backers.

This looks like something similar:

Maybe we should use it for Simcoin development later.
