Not sure if you’re aware but this was/is potentially a massive scam. They have gone completely dark on all of their campaigns and ran off with the money. It’s likely to be on the next American greed or something. They don’t respond to any comments or questions from backers, the website is down, and they are MIA on instagram. Hopefully there’s a perfect explanation. If not there will be a lot of people hunting down the Watt Ant crew to squash them like bugs.
