People telling their friends about the game. The average donation is still at about $77 per person right now.
Every day hundreds are signing up... it has been a slow uptick of the # of people signing up every day. It is not just the USA but all over the world.
$23 million is what will give CIG $21 million [after PayPal/Kickstarter/Credit card companies take their cut] to make the game without needing any outside investors/publishers.
I remember doing the math a last week at 20 Million and it was right around $75 a person.
With the most popular package being the Digital Bounty Hunter package at $65 (access to alpha, beta, & final) if someone spends $10 extra on goodies for their hangar $75-80 would be really easy to hit.
