Update: Important News

12 likes

Hello everyone,

We want to start by saying how much we appreciate all of our backers. Your enthusiasm has proven to the world that our shared vision for the Wolfe can become a reality.

We’re writing today to share some important news: we are going to be cancelling our Kickstarter campaign, and refunding your pledges in full. Our success has attracted the attention of some big players in the industry, who recently reached out to us about the Wolfe. Through these conversations, it became clear there would be some uncertainty in attaining the product certifications essential for the Thunderbolt 2 (and thus macOS) versions of the Wolfe.

We decided it wouldn’t be right to accept pledges from you, our earliest supporters, with these new developments and changes to our timeline. However, these factors will allow us to bring you an even better product in the near future as we work with our new partners in the industry. We are incredibly excited about the next steps for the Wolfe, and the future of this Kickstarter community.

Thank you for an amazing campaign. We’ll be back.

Sincerely,
The Wolfepack

      Really? BizonBox doesn't seem to have these "product certifications essential for the Thunderbolt 2" I was really looking forward to getting one of these. I don't feel the above statement is a very good explanation as to what is really going on here. Respectfully.

      Yah... I was afraid of that. I suspected there might be some licensing, EULA barrier, or like to T-bolt2 units due to the lack of options on the market but was hoping "Proof-of-concept variant for Beta-testing Kickstarter Backers" would be a grey market exception.

      Anyway good luck and thanks for cancelling now rather than reneging later. It would be crazy awesome if the barriers to Thunderbolt 1/2 eGPUs were removed but I suspect "new and improved" is a euphemism for "TB-3 only" which would count me out.

      Bugger. What a pity. Hope you can still come back to the market with a "new and improved" offering after you've resolved what sounds political complications.

      Somewhat unfortunate. But it shows courage to do it this way. I hope the popularity also attracted big player investors to help you get another kind of funding.

      Wasn't expecting this at all. We'll be sure to keep us posted on your progress.

      So disappointing to hear this, but I am hopeful you guys will bring something amazing to market in the not so distant future. All the best!
