Goodbye gas fees.
Hello Optimism

Build ultra fast, scalable, EVM-compatible products on Optimism,using Alchemy's leading blockchain developer platform.

On June 6th, Optimism Mainnet will upgrade to Bedrock, requiring 2-4 hours of temporary downtime for OP Mainnet.

Bedrock was built to be modular & upgradeable, to reuse existing code from Ethereum, and to be as close to 100% Ethereum-equivalent as possible. These architectural changes will translate into lower fees, reduced deposit times, and improved node performance.

How it Works

The benefits
of Optimism

100x scale

Optimism's optimistic roll ups enable up to 2000 transaction per second with dramatically lower fees, while Alchemy's auto-scaling API let's you take full advantage.

EVM compatible

Deploy your existing smart contracts, use identical API endpoints, and take advantage of the promise of layer 2 with almost no code change and absolutely no nodes.

Powerful web3 tools

The cutting edge doesn't have to be painful - with Alchemy you have full access to Optimism using the same mature API and tool.
"Alchemy is a world class engineering team providing critical infra support to the Ethereum ecosystem. We’re so stoked to have their support on this insane journey to the wild west of technology."
