Moving (Some) Free Nomics Crypto Market Data API Endpoints to Paid Plan

Effective on July 18th 2019, we’ll be moving the following endpoints from the free API (to our paid API plans) . . .

We’re making these changes to the Nomics free market data API for the following reasons:

Reason #1: The Vast Majority of Free API Users Were Not Providing Data Attribution – Although attribution is required when using the free API, the vast majority of users (many of whom are using the API anonymously) were not granting this attribution.

Reason #2: Too Many Businesses Were Using The Free API – Even though it’s prohibited, too many businesses (many with large teams, VC, and/or real revenue) were using the free plan without paying (even though use of our free API is prohibited for use by businesses or for-profit projects). Often, a business would justify this by indicating that the data was being used for internal research purposes or other “non-commercial” purposes.

Conclusion

We were happy to provide the featureset available with the current free plan for as long as we did. Indeed, we were providing more with this complimentary tier than leading competitors provide with $800+/month plans.

That said, we’re making this change after much consideration and thought. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this email.

Onwards and Upwards,

Clay

P.S. If you’re a non-profit organization, educational institution, or leader at an open-source project — or if you’re a business with whom we have a separate arrangement — and you feel these changes should not apply to you, please reply to this email and let us know.

What “paid plans”? All I see is Enterprise which is serious overkill for a layman.

Apologies. “Enterprise” is just semantics. We’ve changed the name to “Business Use.” Happy to send you a price quote if you fill out this form: https://nomics.typeform.com/to/rSVWnF
