Sunsetting Toshi.io - Hosted Bitcoin Node

For approx 1.5 years we have been running an unsupported hosted version of our open source bitcoin node (aka Toshi) at Toshi.io. It’s become increasingly buggy and has regrettably caused some frustration for a handful of developers who rely on it.

As we have posted today atop Toshi.io, developers are hereby notified that we will sunset the hosted service on Dec 15th 2016. We will continue to make available the open source code in the github repo here.

Please direct any questions/feedback to us at api@coinbase.com.

Please note: We’re hiring engineers (both in our San Francisco office and remote anywhere in the world). If you’re interested in speaking with us about a role we’ve set up a coding challenge that you can take in about 30–45 minutes. You can also apply through our careers site if you prefer to start the conversation that way.
