Transact API QuickStart

The Transact API is a suite of APIs built to make your blockchain transactions more secure, transparent, and faster.

To use the Transact API you'll need to create a free Alchemy account first!

What is the Transact API?

The Transact API is a subset of the Alchemy Transact product suite that includes APIs and enhanced functionality to makes your transactions cheaper, safer, and faster.

What Features are included in the Transact API?

1. Reinforced Transactions

The Reinforced Transactions engine automatically tracks and re-sends your transactions if they are not going through, so you don't have to worry about your transactions getting dropped (especially during network congestion). You can learn more about how Reinforced Transactions work on the Reinforced and Accelerated Transactions page.

Get started

Reinforced transactions are supported out of the box for growth and enterprise tier users, no action necessary :sunglasses:.

2. Accelerated Transactions

The Accelerated Transactions engine gives you 3x faster transaction mining speed through improved broadcasting and peering, without any additional work on your end. You can learn more about how Accelerated Transactions work on the Reinforced and Accelerated Transactions page.

Get started

Accelerated transactions are supported out of the box for growth and enterprise tier users, no action necessary :sunglasses:.

3. Private Transactions

The Private Transactions endpoints are a way to send and cancel transactions without exposing them to the public mempool, preventing unwanted arbitrage and front-running via Flashbot's technology.

Get started

The Private Transactions endpoints are available for free, all you have to do is create an Alchemy account first. Check out the documentation for the two endpoints here:

4. Transaction Notifications

The Transactions Notifications feature is a part of the Alchemy Notify suite which gives you real-time alerts for when transactions get mined or dropped from the mempool. This allows you to notify your users when transactions are final instead of having to refresh the screen to manually monitor changes in transaction status.

Get started

For details on how to start using Transaction Notifications, check out the Notify API Quickstart guide.
