Calling all Web3 developers...

Whether you are building Web3 applications for the first time, working on a solo project, or working for the largest teams in the space, Alchemy is here to make your life as an dApp developer exponentially better.

Want to build a dApp? You're going to need nodes...

With the current blockchain landscape, maintaining self-hosted nodes is expensive, unreliable, and extremely time-consuming. Alchemy gives you access to our custom Supernode API that is built for production, requires only 1-minute to integrate, and has 100% data correctness. We also provide an additional suite of developer tools to make your life as a blockchain developer even easier.

Why is it hard to run blockchain nodes?

Running and maintaining self-hosted nodes can be a blockchain developer's #1 pain.

It's expensive:

  • An average of $86k/year in costs
  • $2k-5k/month in AWS costs
  • $4800/month of engineering time

It's time consuming:

  • Teams waste 25% of engineering resources managing nodes
  • It takes 3-6 months to develop robust infrastructure
  • Failures can be catastrophic, requiring up to 3 weeks to recover

It can be unreliable:

  • Nodes on average have issues once every 5 days:
    • CPU spikes, memory leaks, disk issues
    • Inconsistent peering
    • Corrupted internal databases
    • Transaction broadcasting issues
    • Frequent bugs + regressions
    • 1 in 6 “stable releases” are broken
Trust us, you don't want to be doing this.

"Alchemy is extremely reliable and robust, and sets the standard for how blockchain infrastructure should be. Alchemy just works. Very rarely does a company come along that takes 30 seconds to integrate with and saves you substantial time and money." - Joey Krug, CIO Plantera
"Using your own node or an error-prone service means wasting hundreds of valuable engineering hours on problems that have nothing to do with your company. Nothing else compares to Alchemy's amazing level of reliability, speed, support." - Alex Atallah, CTO OpeanSea
"Using Alchemy is a no-brainer for us. In DeFi, where markets are 24/7, low-latency and high-uptime are especially important, and Alchemy provides just that." - Brandon Millman, Engineering Manager 0x
"Since using Alchemy, our team has been able to refocus its time on building new product features for Augur that we wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. We used to spend a notable amount of time dealing with infrastructure issues, and now we don’t worry at all." - Tom Kysar, Augur
"We ran our own Ethereum infrastructure for long enough, partnering with Alchemy to instead focus on building our business. Now we leave Ethereum infrastructure to the pros." - Adam Link, Engineer, Airswap
