Developing and running stinto costs money. With one central, powerful server and 30+ additional servers around the globe for best performance, running stinto comes with a monthly bill to operate, run and maintain the servers (hardware, power, network traffic,...).
Adding new features, fixing things and maintaining the code costs time (=money).
To earn money, we used to show ads. But, to be honest, the advertising revenue often did not even cover the monthly server costs - not to mention development costs or even a profit.
In addition, the new GDPR has made it very difficult to find compliant advertising partners. We take privacy very seriously and expect that from our partners too.
Until the GDPR has "settled", it is simply impossible for us to continue advertising, so that the survival of stinto is only possible through your financial support.
It's that simple (unfortunately)... p>
