Something has gone very right and very wrong with crowdfunding.
By now we're all familiar with it -- the open platform that solicits contributions or tiny investments from the 99 percent to fund creative projects, philanthropic endeavors, R&D and your band's music video.
In 2012, crowdfunding raised $2.7 billion and that's expected to practically double this year to $5.1 billion, according to Massolution. That's about a quarter of what the U.S. venture capital industry raises annually.
