GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG or GPG) is the GNU implementation of the OpenPGP standard which is widely used for encrypting/decrypting email, disks, and other data. GPG has been around since 1997 and is a widely used and well-trusted project.
The crowdfunding campaign was conceived by Werner Koch, longtime author of GPG, and Same Tuke, of the Free Software Foundation Europe. It bundled several goals under the name ‘website and infrastructure’, including the 2.1 release, a brand new website designed to be more user friendly with new servers, mobile friendly design, anonymous Tor access, and updated documentation.
The campaign reached 100% of its ‘optimum’ goal within 26 hours.
