Alchemy is a developer platform that empowers companies to build scalable and reliable decentralized applications without the hassle of managing blockchain infrastructure in-house.
Alchemy is headquartered in San Francisco. Alchemy was founded in 2017 by Nikil Viswanathan and Joseph Lau, both graduates of Stanford University who had both previously worked in computer science and engineering at technology companies including Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Pinterest, Google, and LinkedIn, respectively.
The company publicly launched in August of 2020, and has since launched a venture capital arm, Alchemy Ventures, and Web3 University, intended as an educational resource on blockchain development.
Alchemy provides developers with the fundamental building blocks they need to create the future of technology. Similar to the way Apple and Amazon built platforms to help developers build on PCs, smartphones, and the cloud, Alchemy is working to build a platform that helps developers build on modern blockchains.
The tools provided by Alchemy for blockchain and software development have been developed for use on Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, Flow, and Crypto.org blockchains. These include tools such as APIs, suites of developer tools, dashboards, and notification tools. Using this platform, companies have been able to develop blockchain applications, such as NFTs, decentralized finance, and related projects.
