  1. We think that to add to the completeness of the story, it should be mentioned that there are mechanisms to protect against such behaviour in crowdfunding.
    For example, recently audited crowdfunding code for Cryptotask that releases funds in stages to the devs only if the stakeholders are satisfied with the project progress.

    In this case, stakeholder voting on the releasal of funds happens each 6 months. In the case that the dev team is not delivering, the investors get a refund from the smart contract.
