The first instance is here, and is open for sign-ups:

@prismo

Federation is still being worked on, but you can already follow Prismo users and comment on their posts from elsewhere on the Fediverse.

I've used Patreon for a few years, less than 1 as a creator and for some reason my account has been flagged for "suspicious activity".
