NFT.Storage Classic Products

NFT.Storage Classic originally offered free uploads and pinning services, with all data content addressed by IPFS, made available via the NFT.Storage Gateway, and stored in Filecoin. While uploads are being decommissioned, the data remains accessible through the gateway and is securely stored in Filecoin.

Important update: Classic uploads decommissioned

As of 30 June 2024, the the free Classic upload and pinning products are decommissioned. All data you've uploaded will continue to be safely stored and accessible via IPFS and the Filecoin Network. Over time, latency and availability may degrade.

Classic data retrieval through NFT.Storage Gateway

NFT data stored by NFT.Storage use CIDs that reference immutable content, ensuring the data you access is exactly what is referenced in the NFT. The data can be accessed from the NFT.Storage Gateway, bitswap, directly in the browser using Brave, via a public IPFS gateway, or by using IPFS Desktop or the IPFS command line, with availability and speed depending on the chosen gateway.

Your data is safe

Since launching in April 2021, NFT.Storage has established itself as a de facto public good for NFTs, supporting over 165,000 users and managing 660 TB of data. Our journey has been driven by a commitment to providing free, resilient, and accessible decentralized storage solutions for off-chain NFT data.
Starting June 30, 2024, at 5 PM EST, the original NFT.Storage Classic will no longer accept new uploads. This includes the NFT.Storage web app, API, SDK, NFTUp, and the Pinning API. While all existing data uploaded before this deadline will continue to be safely stored and accessible via the NFT.Storage Gateway, IPFS and the Filecoin Network, latency and availability may degrade over time.

Therefore, we encourage users to copy their data to ensure continued hot storage that meet your performance expectations.

The future of the NFT.Storage Gateway

We’ll be working with the newly formed NFT.Storage community to determine what changes, if any, NFT.Storage Classic data latency and availability will be impacted in the future. We will keep you informed by email and on Twitter/X. Follow us and join the community conversation by becoming an NFT.Storage member today.
