The Cosmic Cowgirls team hit back with accusations against the head moderator, accusing him of falsifying allegations against the project out of anger at being fired along with the other moderators. The group also claimed that the funds had been moved for security and tax reasons, and sent a vaguely threatening message to the moderator in which they stated that he should "discontinue the spread of false information in attempts to harm us and the project" and "resolve [concerns] ... privately as the terms of our contract are still ongoing and applicable".
The former head moderator of the Cosmic Cowgirls NFT project Discord, Esh, wrote on Twitter that that the project team had fired all moderators and scrapped all of their roadmaps. The previous roadmap had promised gamification, meetups, merchandise, comics, an animated series, and all sorts of other things, though no headway appeared to have been made on any of them. The team also removed around 300 ETH (a bit over $1 million) in funds from the project wallet.
