Solana. Now available on Alchemy.
Join the Waitlist to Get Early Access
“We’re really excited that Alchemy will now support Solana. Their launch will give developers greater access to high-quality infrastructure and tooling.”
Lightning Fast Transactions
Solana's parallel smart contract runtime, Sealevel, enables exceptionally high throughput. With 50k transactions per second, and Alchemy's infinitely scalable infrastructure, Solana developers can seamlessly grow their app with user demand.
Fast Block Times
With Proof of History consensus, new blocks can be generated almost 40x faster than on Ethereum. Alchemy infrastructure will allow Solana developers to reliably and consistently take advantage of Solana’s speed.
Predictable Transaction Costs
Not only do most transactions on Solana cost less than one cent, but transaction costs are predictable, with minimal gas fee volatility.
Solana is a Layer 1 blockchain that’s easy to develop on. No Layer 2 scaling solutions required to increase throughput or maintain low gas fees.
“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."
How does Solana work?
Solana is a Proof of Stake L1 blockchain that uses novel blockchain innovations like Proof of History and Sealevel to process smart contract transactions in parallel with 400ms block times. Solana is able to achieve an estimated 50,000 transactions per second, with transaction costs less than $0.01.
How will Alchemy support Solana blockchain developers?
Alchemy Supernode will provide Solana developers with infinitely scalable infrastructure, so they can quickly launch, iterate and scale dApps on Solana.
What Solana JSON-RPC methods will Alchemy’s Solana endpoint support?
Alchemy’s Solana endpoint will support most JSON-RPC Solana supported methods, including full archive data.
Why will using Alchemy be different than running our own Solana node?
Alchemy’s scalable Solana infrastructure enables Solana developers to launch their applications without having to run their own Solana node.
Specifically, Alchemy’s Supernode has the simplicity of working with a single node, but with infinite and instant scalability.
Running Solana nodes requires significant resources and maintenance - using Alchemy lets developers get started for free with pricing that scales as their app usage grows.
When is the Solana Early Access period over?
There is no firm date on when Early Access is over. Once Alchemy’s Solana API is out of early access, everyone will be able to start building apps on Solana with Alchemy.
