The software maker BlueYeti has announced that it will shut down, citing a lack of revenue.
The announcement comes after BlueYetis software was reported by The Wall Street Journal to have sold $1.8 billion worth of software in 2016.
The software company has previously said it planned to make its software available to developers in the next several months.
The company said it had reached a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission in a lawsuit filed in April.
The software maker also said it would not be offering new products to developers and instead would instead focus on making its software free.
The move comes amid the fallout from a viral ad campaign that has exposed the software maker’s deep ties to the Democratic Party.
BlueYeti software is used in consumer products such as smartphones and tablets.
It was originally designed for the iPhone but is widely used for other Android devices, including Chromebooks and smartphones.
The WSJ reported on Wednesday that BlueYetic software was selling software in the tens of millions of dollars, but it had not disclosed sales figures.
It said it was the largest software seller in the United States.
Blue Yeti Software, which has offices in Washington, D.C., is the brainchild of a New York-based programmer and computer engineer, Josh Maffei, and his wife, Sarah.
Sarah Maffi is also the president of the nonprofit nonprofit group the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan group that tracks money in politics.
Blue yetis software is popular with people who want to make personal digital assistants that can help them with tasks ranging from searching the web to answering phone calls.
BlueButi is one of a growing number of companies that use software developed by the nonprofit group, according to The Wall St. Journal.
BlueYet i software was the subject of a viral video that showed its developers telling an ad agency to use a photo of a yeti in order to get more business.
Blue Yet i is a proprietary software that Blue Yetis uses to generate ads on smartphones and other devices.
The video, produced by a group called Project Mondo, showed two yetis, one with a face and the other with a body, in an advertisement that the group said was targeting people who are interested in making personal digital assistant software.
Blue yeti is popular because of its ability to connect users to services that are available only through its software, the group claimed.
