After some long long internal discussion, we decided that it's time to pull the plug on Biteasy.
It's been 3 years since we released Biteasy and kept it FREE for all this time by maintaining it with private funds, serving thousands of API requests and site visitors per month, and becoming a valuable asset to the bitcoin community. Unfortunately, however, the current form of the service is no longer really required and since it never evolved to something more, it is only natural for us to move forward with other endeavors.
On January 20th 2017, the service will officially shutdown without any further delay. It's plenty of time in order for all our API users to move to a different provider and since there are plenty out there nowadays, it shouldn't be a big problem choosing one of them.
It's been a fun ride for us and we are proud that we had the chance to create something useful and share it with the world.
We hope all the best for the future of bitcoin and thanks to all the bitcoin community which supported us and provided feedback all this time!
