The app was created by Michael Bründel, who is reportedly known for being part of the Querdenker movement – a protest group who have challenged Covid restrictions in the country.

Upon signing up for the app, people are asked to fill in questions about the conspiracy theories they believe are real. On top of that, they're then asked to describe how they believe the world will change in the next 20 years.
