The NFT project started by DeAaron Fox was one of the most ambitious projects and had a lot of wiggle room, but now that it has been decided that the project will be wound up all wiggle room and opportunity seems to be gone for it and the money of all the people who invested in it , will also be lost with no refund being issued.
