Crowdfunding Platform CrowdedRocket Can’t Handle Traffic After Launch

Earlier this week, crowdfunding platform CrowdedRocket launched as a new place for reward-based campaigns. Ubergizmo reports that the website only focuses on startups and helps the fulfillment of non product related gifts. This is to avoid any fraud that plagues other platforms like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. Its mission is actively prepare startups for successful campaigns, which is different from the other platform’s approach to projects.

CrowdedRocket 2One of its first campaigns is for a startup called Moodmetric. The company is known for its smart jewelry that is for emotional intelligence and well-being. The jewelry does the following:
