Not just currency. Has to do with they may not be able to open a US bank account (requirement of US based kickstarter that uses amazon for payments). There's different requirements for this kickstarter since its that division of KS is based in UK.
In this case he's based in Australia. I imagine if someone wanted to pay his flight to US to open account, then pay the 3rd party to manage the US specific stuff, he would have run it on the US kickstarter site.
