    During our crowdfunding campaign last year we estimated the shipping date of the Nitrokey Storage would be 2 May 2016. As we have previously mentioned, the time-critical aspect of the project is the development of the plastic casing. We have already made three revisions to the design of the casing and this week we received the latest sample of the casing. Unfortunately the casing isn't ready yet which is why we have had to postpone the release date of the Nitrokey Storage to June.
