Pounds or Dollars??

I’m in the initial planning stages of my first ever campaign so am researching as much as I can. I’ve already come up with a question that I can’t seem to find any advice on… I’m UK based but not sure whether to use pounds or dollars for my campaign? I notice that the majority of campaigns are in dollars and that most of the really successful ones are in dollars. However my first PR stage will be to friends & acquaintances who are mainly based in the UK. My 2nd stage will be social media PR where I have a mix of British & US followers. What do you think? It wouldn’t put me off backing a campaign if it was in dollars and I do wonder whether international backers would prefer dollars….? I’d really appreciate your opinions on this!

I think use whatever you're comfortable with. Probably Pounds is best.

I thought you could'nt choose? Dont you have to use the currency for the country where you register your campaign? I have a campaign coming soon which i would prefer to be in EURO, but is in GBP as i am UK resident with UK bank account.

As you are based in UK so I think Pound will be the best option for you.
