The Australian based project has raised an impressive $4.2 million in just 9 days. Over 10,000 backers have committed funding so far. This amount beats the previous amount by 92% – so it is not even close. For comparison the largest successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to date is for “An Hour of Code” that raised just over $5 million. Flow Hive still has over 30 days left in the campaign so it should easily surpass the current platform record holder.
