Kickstarter fundraising summary

November 4, 2023

Seven days have passed since the successful conclusion of our Kickstarter campaign, and we would like to provide you with an update on the progress of the Cyper Device project. Immediately after the campaign's end, Kickstarter began the process of charging our supporters' credit cards. However, it is with regret that we must report that some payments encountered difficulties due to expired cards or incorrect payment information.

Over the past week, we have been actively communicating with individuals who faced payment issues, encouraging them to update their payment details. As a result, the majority of supporters have successfully updated their payment methods. Unfortunately, a few orders, including 19 limited "metal" devices, remain unpaid. We would like to express our gratitude to everyone for their engagement and patience in resolving these matters.

It's worth noting that information about supporting the Cyper Device project appeared on Kickstarter after the campaign's conclusion. Although we initially announced the sale of 248 out of 250 available devices, accounting for the "error backers," we have a total of 229 out of 250 orders.

Within a week of publishing this blog post, we plan to initiate a pre-sale on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to achieve our goal of selling 250 out of 250 devices, particularly for the limited models. We encourage everyone to follow us on these platforms to stay up to date with the latest information.

What are we currently working on?

  1. Our documentation, titled "DOCS," is available on our website, but we've encountered performance issues. Therefore, we've decided to migrate it to GitBook, a professional documentation platform, to ensure a smoother and more efficient experience for our users.
  2. We have commenced work on user accounts, where every supporter can track their purchases, access important information, and stay updated on project developments in one place. We kindly ask our supporters and project followers to create accounts on our website at www.cyper.pro/sign-in.
  3. We are awaiting funds from Kickstarter, which we will duly account for in accordance with the law.
  4. We continue to collect information regarding color choices and precise delivery addresses from our supporters. The process is proceeding smoothly, with 75% of respondents having already provided this information.

What lies ahead for us?

  1. In response to numerous messages from our supporters, we plan to launch the Cyper Device Discord server. Work will commence on November 15, with the server's official start scheduled for November 20. We aim to make this platform a hub for active participation and assistance in shaping the project's future, and it's an initiative inspired by one of our supporters. We thank you for your dedication, as you, our community, are the driving force behind Cyper Device!
  2. We are addressing minor improvements in PCB design to enhance component connections. Furthermore, we are considering optimizations for the NFC/RFID antenna board.
  3. Between November 15 and 30, our marketing team will begin producing instructional videos and launch campaigns on social media platforms, including TikTok, to promote the Cyper Device project globally, extending beyond Kickstarter.
  4. Our manufacturing partners in China are intensively working on prototyping, while in Poland, we are creating the first prototypes of metal housings using CNC machines.

Our work on the Cyper Device is progressing rapidly, and despite the holiday season approaching, our team is working tirelessly to fulfill our vision and bring Cyper to life. We sincerely thank you for your support, and the coming weeks will be filled with activities and surprises!
