Money makes the world go around. Put your money where your mouth is! Follow the money – by following me. Control how I spend thousands of Euros every month. For every*) Finnish follower, I put one Euro on vote. You decide how it is used. I want to do this for transparency, to allow you a possibility to control me, and out of curiosity. I really don't know, what is going to happen and what you will come up with YOLO.
In my personal life, I will have expenses as anybody, some crucial, some consumerist. There are a lot of life style consumer decisions one can make as a citizen or as a representative. For the most part, I want to give the control to you. For the crucial needs, I will reserve the average pay of a Finnish citizend for myself.
Or instead, can you imagine a charity or cool idea that would benefit a community or open democracy of some kind somewhere, that could be kicked off with a crowdfunding campaign? Would you like to vote which of these projects will get the funding? If I get elected, I salary, and I can help.
Legally, one cannot promise nor give money to someone, in order to try to influence someone (not) to vote in a particular manner. Thus, the beneficiaries of the campaigns cannot be people who could have influence in someones voting behavior. Therefore, to be sure, I will limit and veto the voting options of the beneficiaries to charities and my personal crowdfunding projects, which could be but are not limited to, for example, open source software tools, that benefit democracy, e-participation, or openness.
The beneficiary would be chosen using the same electronig voting system, that I am using in my political decision making. Currently this is the LiquidFeedback system. By creating an Initiative, anybody can propose a beneficiary. Others can demand alterations to the beneficiaries' initiatives, or support them as is. Competing Initiatives will be chosen by vote once a month, by anyone living in Finland, that is at least 15 years old, as constrained by electronic banking authentication systems. If this voting procedure or paying a beneficiary fails for some reason, the monthly money will remain in the fund and will be used, as decided later by new Initiatives and a new voting process.
Donations and other support is subject to respective legislation and to my personal decisions. If your donation or support requires anonymity, I can accept that upto 1500 € value in EU elections, as constrained by the law.The lawful maximum is 10.000 €, from from a signle supporter to a single candidate.
SEPA bank transfer is recommended over other support and donation mehtods, because it seems to contain no expese overhead.

Bitcoin enables anonymous openness of financial matters. Clicking abowe, shows the transactions of my wallet, in realtime..
If your anonymous Bitcoin-donation exeeds 1500 € and I, thus, not able to report for the election authorities, who the donor is, I will not withdraw the exeeding funds for my campaign. I reserve the right to send the extra Bitcoins back to the donor's Bitcoin (wallet) address.
