Magento 1 version 1.9 to 1.14 were supported till June 30, but now they have stopped all support for Magento version 1.
Also, support for Magento 1 enterprise edition has also come to end on June 30. Quality fixes had already been stopped for v1.5 to v1.9.
Add “/magento_version” to your main domain, and you will be able to see the current version of your Magento store. You can check this link about checking the Magento version in detail.
Your Magento store will keep running even if you do not upgrade your store. But the major threats like your customer’s card details and other details might come under problem. Also, your store will be no more PCI-compliant. No more security updates will be given.
Your payment partner will not wish to work with you as your store is no longer secured. Also, updates for third-party extensions will not be given. As all developers will be focusing on Magento 2, you won’t get any new feature-wise extension for your old Magento store. It might affect your reputation as well, as people will not like to purchase from a risky store, and they will just go away from your store. Thus, it will cause you lots of loss and a decrease in the number of sales.
With all these risks, if you think you can survive in this competitive market then Magento 1 is okay else you can simply hire an experienced Magento developer who can help you to upgrade your store before Magento 1 support ends.
