The leading blockchain developer platform, Alchemy, will bring its best-in-class suite of APIs and tools to the Flow blockchain, the network home to NBA Top Shot, Moto GP and upcoming titles from Dr. Seuss and others. The Alchemy developer platform for Flow will provide all developers, from individuals to enterprises, with the tools and infrastructure they need to create great products, bringing blockchain to its next billion stakeholders.
Alchemy is the leading API platform for blockchain developers, already powering more than $25 billion in annual transaction volume on the Ethereum blockchain. Flow blockchain will be the next expansion beyond Ethereum for the San Francisco-based team. Home to leading consumer experiences, such as NBA Top Shot and upcoming titles from Dr. Seuss, MotoGP and UFC, Flow is witnessing unprecedented momentum in terms of developer traction, with over 1,000 developers and teams actively building on top of the network.
“Alchemy’s mission is to empower developers with the building blocks they need to build the future, so the activity on NBA Top Shot and explosive growth of the overall ecosystem made the need to support Flow obvious,” said Nikil Viswanathan, CEO of Alchemy. “The demand we’ve seen from blockchain teams to build on Flow has been incredible. Flow delivers the scalability developers need and will help usher in the next generation of massively adopted NFTs and consumer blockchain applications.”
With the Alchemy team bringing its best-in-class platform to Flow, developers will now be able to leverage one of the most sophisticated scaling solutions to address an ever-increasing demand from both crypto and mainstream consumers.
“Alchemy is already the market leader in blockchain developer platforms. That’s why I’m so excited to see and support them building for the Flow community,” said Roham Gharegozlou, CEO of Dapper Labs. “Independent developers on Flow can use Alchemy’s tools to get started more easily, while experienced teams need the power of their platform to handle scale and diagnose complex issues.”
The combination of Flow’s highly scalable network with Alchemy’s developer-centric platform will ensure that the world’s most successful enterprises and small teams alike can deliver incredible products and experiences empowered by blockchain technology.
