OpenCNFT has reached the end of its useful life

OpenCNFT is now in a shut down phase. It's been a fun three years, but all things must end.

If you're currently using OpenCNFT, please stop using it as soon as you can.

What you should use instead

The following free services offer fantastic alternatives to some or all of OpenCNFT's functionality. You may like them even more than OpenCNFT.

Why this is happening

OpenCNFT has always been a small hobby project. I've never been able to spend more than a handful of minutes a week on it, but it achieved a degree of popularity I could never have imagined.

Last month alone OpenCNFT served over 100 million API calls for free. Those numbers are simply unfathomable to me. They're almost too huge to be real. (our API will be shutdown on 2024-02-01)

Thank you!

To everyone who has contributed to OpenCNFT over the years, or who has said nice things to me about it, or who has just used it without being a jerk: thank you. I've learned a lot, and I've mostly enjoyed it. I hope you have too.
