In a community of P2P contributors, how might they leverage the benefits of crowdfunding (i.e. micro-donations from interested people who believe in the spirit and goals of the P2P community)? How does the community decide what to do with each new dollar that comes up (assuming that the donor doesn't provide explicit instructions)?
In most instances of crowdfunding, there already exists a for-profit firm or NGO with decision-making and allocation powers built into the system (i.e. management). This management is assigned by the board which is assigned by investors or foundational members. The same is not true always with P2P communities.
How should the money be split up and with whom should this decision-making control reside?
