How can Alchemy help Shipping companies with their blockchain strategy?

Alchemy's team of blockchain experts and enterprise-grade web3 development platform can help Healthcare companies plan, build, and scale new blockchain initiatives.

Previously, we couldn't automate bookkeeping for on and off-chain purchases within our carbon removal marketplace. With Alchemy's Custom Webhooks, we can instantly get notified about the most recent on-chain transactions and can merge that information with off-chain data. The key thing for us here is that this data is 100% reliable, so we know we can safely show it to our users in the frontend.
