Alchemy’s mission is to bring web3 to billions of people around the world by making it easy for any developer, anywhere, to build on blockchain. Today, we take a huge step forward in that mission.

Sign up to get Early Access, and in the coming weeks, Alchemy will be available for all devs building on Solana.

The Solana team are pioneers in the web3 space

You don’t have to be a degen to be familiar with Solana. Solana’s technology enables meaningful and acute user benefits, including high throughput and fast, affordable transactions. 

Now, with Alchemy’s support, it will be easier than ever for developers to get started on Solana and capitalize on the user demand for diverse Solana applications - from NFTs and games to DeFi exchanges and wallets.

With Alchemy, building on Solana just got way easier

Alchemy has spent years building, refining and battle-testing a comprehensive web3 developer platform. The biggest names in web3 are all built on Alchemy today - from DeFi projects like 0x, Aave and dYdX to NFT projects like OpenSea, Nifty Gateway, Royal and SuperRare. The common thread among these projects is their reliance on Alchemy, which has allowed them to build some of the most popular and differentiated web3 experiences.

Now, Solana devs will be able to capitalize on the Alchemy benefit, allowing them to build and scale their Solana applications faster and more easily.

“We’re really excited that Alchemy will now support Solana. Their launch will give developers greater access to high-quality Solana infrastructure and tooling.”  - Raj Gokal, Co-Founder of Solana

Alchemy has spent hundreds of thousands of hours building and optimizing platform products that can deliver reliability, scalability and accuracy for developers - a trifecta of benefits, otherwise elusive in this space.

“We're thrilled that Alchemy will now be supporting Solana. Their infrastructure and product suite has a proven track record for performance benefits. This will be a game changer for Phantom and any other Solana developers who choose to start using Alchemy.”  - Francesco Agosti, CTO and Co-Founder, Phantom 

Alchemy’s products are truly end-to-end, with proprietary infrastructure, and a full suite of enhanced APIs, monitoring and visualization tools

Together, Alchemy’s systems work to allow developers uptime and scalability, without introducing accuracy issues.

How does it all work? 

Alchemy’s node infrastructure, Supernode, is a combination of custom, scalable and distributed systems that essentially allow the API to act as a single node, enabling reliability and scale, while solving accuracy issues common in a peer-to-peer network; Supernode has the simplicity of a single node, but with infinite and instant scalability and reliability. 

Alchemy’s explicit consistency layer, called Vox Nodi (the voice of the nodes), runs a consensus algorithm to ensure that any blockchain request will return a consistent result.

In the Ethereum ecosystem, Alchemy’s infrastructure has driven exceptional results with industry-leading reliability and scalability.

“Nothing else compares to the level of reliability, scalability, and developer support that Alchemy has brought to the Ethereum and Polygon ecosystems on OpenSea.”  - Adam Montgomery, Head of Blockchain, OpenSea

Beyond best-in-class infrastructure, Alchemy’s all-in-one dashboard makes it easy to monitor app performance and user behavior. Our enhanced APIs like the NFT API, rolling out to the Solana ecosystem later this year, allow devs to easily and quickly start building NFT apps with just one line of code.

And best of all? Alchemy’s just getting started. The team can’t wait to watch what Solana developers start building with Alchemy and optimizing the Alchemy product suite to meet Solana devs’ needs.  

Bringing the best to Solana developers, old and new

Solana is one of the fastest growing blockchains in the world, playing a disproportionately pivotal role in the NFT and gaming ecosystems, where transaction speed and affordability is particularly vital.

Alchemy’s north star, and one of the key indicators of long-term health for the web3 ecosystem, is the developer engagement, creativity, and productivity on the platform every day.

By bringing the growing number of new and existing Solana developers into this community, we only strengthen the web3 ecosystem and expand the boundaries of what is possible when we build together.

Starting today, for Early Access developers, Alchemy’s Solana endpoint will support most JSON-RPC Solana supported methods, including full archive data. More functionality and open access, coming soon!
