Any indie hackers run a successful Kickstarter?

Had breakfast with 2 friends this morning. Their kickstarter just funded yesterday in 2 hours.

I was talking marketing, with them, giving them some ideas and places they could share their learning. I introduced them to Indie hackers as a supportive knowledgeable community, and that got me thinking, have any Indie hackers run Kickstarters?

      Yes indeed, funded in 3 hours! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/judbd/cyberspace-building-crew-embroidered-patches-and-s/ => http://www.cyberspace.builders

      Huge blog post with precise numbers here (even exact post-campaign numers, quite rare): https://mariejulien.com/post/2019/05/23/cyberspace-building-crew-le-guide-ultime-de-ma-campagne-kickstarter-reussie in french but google translate will help.

    Imho, Kickstarter style doesn't fit the projects for Indie Hackers. Indie Hackers always start small and their first goal is to build profitable products. Kickstarter let people start in public as a team.
