-- What are the limitations of crowdfunding?
Have you ever donated money to someone on GoFundMe or another crowdfunding website? One Texas entrepreneur is seeking investors to donate money to purchase thousands of acres in Texas to do the unthinkable, build a Texas sized castle. They say everything is bigger in Texas, and that seems to be his plan to build the biggest castle in the world.
Why a castle? With the rise of interest in TV and Movies like Game of Thrones and Lord of The Rings why not?
He is asking for donations as low as $5 with no limit to the amount that can be donated. According to the GoFundMe page donors will receive ownership in shares of prime parcels of land. This land could be developed in the future for hotels, shops, camp grounds, etc. What if you could have invested in Disney World or Universal Studios and been part owner of the land surrounding it before it went live? Will the castle actually be built? Only if the entire funds are reached, and that is yet to be determined. You can see the crowdfunding attempt for yourself at https://www.gofundme.com/texascastle
. Who knows, maybe you will be adventurous enough to take part. After all for less than the price of a fast food meal you too could own a piece of Texas history!
