About location sharing: have you considered about the privacy issue of downloading tiles? This might disclose your location. I know there was a messenger that planned using #peermaps https://peermaps.org/ to mitigate that.
For the funding we are doing our part (with @copiepublique) but have you considered a progress bar? If crowdfunding platform use this pattern, it may work (gamification?)
@matrix there is another topic that is missing IMO.
Where is the "matrix dmoz"? I think matrix has a discoverability problem. I'm doing my part, creating themed spaces but where can one find a searchable list of (big) spaces? For newcomers, Matrix looks empty 😔
