A crowdfunding platform can receive an indication that an entity has completed an action. Examples of an entity include a funder, a campaign account owner, a third party and a combination thereof. Examples of actions include making a purchase, subscribing to a service, joining an entity's social network, etc. Upon receiving the indication, an account (e.g., a crowdfund account such as a funder and/or campaign account) can be credited with a value that can correspond to the completion of the action. Value can be transferred from an external account (such as travel rewards program, an external virtual currency account, etc.) to a crowdfund account and vice versa. If the transferor account is denominated in a different unit of value than the transferee account, an exchange rate can be determined and applied to the transaction.
