Lotus.fm is a Portland startup dedicated to helping artists get paid. Looking for a simple, earth-friendly way to crowdfund your next album or other creative project? Lotus.fm Visual Badges give fans the ability to contribute to a campaign and receive a limited-edition, artist-created virtual badge instead of a sticker or coffee mug. You don't have to worry about the high cost of shipping or storing more merch than you actually need. Meanwhile, your campaign gets a boost as fans share their badges on their own social media pages.
