“Patreon Is Falling Apart, Is Unsustainable Says CEO. A few weeks ago the CEO of Patreon said that his company is not sustainable and that they needed to find ways to generate revenue. Only a week or so later a massive site failure affected everyone on Patreon.
The site was frequently up and down, Patreon kept claiming to know the problem, but every time they claimed it was fixed it shut down shortly after. Patreon eventually issued an advance due to the errors putting man accounts negative.
This has been a pretty bad couple of months for Patreon. Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, and Sam Harris have all left and were some of the top accounts on the platform.
Since the banning of Sargon of Akkad it would seem that Patreon is facing rough waters ahead.”
