Indeed. In my country 20k EUR per year is a good pay, but even with a
pay of 60k EUR|$ a year, that would mean paying the whole earnings of a
month for something that is still at the crowdfunding stage and may just
disappear into nothing.

If you consider that people have to, well, live with that money, that
would mean multiple months of savings / disposable income.

If somebody has a family, that probably goes in the range of expenses
that have to be negotiated with the other family members.

All of this necessarily reduces the number of people who can even think
about partecipating in that crowdfunding, not to say actually decide to
put down their money for it.
