6Wunderkinder snaps up and shuts down Berlin startup Moped

Moped announced it has been acquired by fellow Berlin company 6Wunderkinder, which will shut down the service on 31 December. It was clear the Berlin-based messaging platform wasn’t doing well – its social media channels had been eerily quiet since May and the last we heard from it was in June, when it released Moped 2.0.
