IMO very unprofessional to shutdown the service on such a short notice. People who build apps on top of chain now need to spend their December porting their code to an alternative instead of spending time with their family or working on the other things that were actually on their roadmap.

I'm not effected, but at least now I know I wouldn't use any service of that company for the future.

The timing of the shutdown could have been better. Spending Xmas and the holidays porting over would not be fun

I am affected. I've built a pretty in depth WP Plugin using the chain api.... now I have to find another solution and implement it before launch..

Any beta testers interested?

I disagree. 1 month is plenty of time to do workarounds. There are plenty of alternatives around.

If you built an service that depends heavily on a propiertary "free" API, you are the idiot in the first place.
