Hello all! o/


I’m proud to announce today, a new service coming from EVE NT: ISKstarter. As many know, the closing of Eve-Bet, Trillionaire, IWI and other services created a vacuum of ISK funding for people running events, creating content, and other activities centered around EVE. This money was often used for providing ships, paying staff, or providing prizes to participants. EVE NT decided that the community funding should still be a painless, smooth experience for those that want to support these organizations, while providing a central location for all independent organizations. So ISKstarter was born!


What is iskstarter?


ISKstarter is a website for fund raising EVE related community events and public content creation. The corporation is owned by CSM member Nashh Kadavr, and campaigns are managed by Bam Stroker, Vincent Eneticum, and Tyrendian Biohazard.


How do campaigns work?


A campaign can be created by anyone by using the SSO login. When a campaign is created, it is set for a certain amount of time, with a specific ISK goal to be reached, and has a unique ID assigned to it. Campaigns are approved by the ISKstarter management group and can be rejected for any reason. ISKstarter is not for personal fund raising, but rather for community related events. Campaigns for buying your own personal super, collect an AT ship, or fund your alliance sov holdings will be rejected. Having additional information regarding your campaign, such as a website with dates and details, previous activities, and detailed goals in mind, is highly suggested when you are submitting.


How do I donate?


Method 1) Send your ISK donation to the corporation ISKstarter with the campaign’s unique ID in the reason field. The ISK is automatically set aside for that campaign on the next API pull.


Method 2) Send your ISK to the corpoation ISKstarter with nothing in the reason field. This will create a virtual wallet for that character and can be access on the ISKstarter site using the SSO. From there you can donate to the listed campaigns. We are also in the process of setting up a Patreon style monthly donation system using the virtual wallet.


How can I be sure this isn’t a scam?


In addition to having reputable people on staff, we are also making a large attempt at operating with transparency. Veldspar aficionado Chribba will be auditing our services, and we are providing a public API key for everyone to review transactions. Additionally, campaigns must be approved by ISKstarter staff, to mitigate scams or any other shady dealings. Other rules and regulations, including administration and processing fees, can be found on the main page of the website.


Feel free to ask questions below and we’ll try to answer them. From all of us at the ISKstarter staff, we look forward to seeing more community events, projects, and all sorts of creative things that this community can come up with and support!
