who we are

Empowering blockchain developers everywhere

We're a group of engineers, designers, and product people in San Francisco who deeply believe in the potential for blockchain technology to change the world. However, we saw that blockchain development was 100x more difficult than typical engineering due to the lack of infrastructure and tooling, and realized that as long as development is hard, blockchain technology will never achieve mass adoption.

We started Alchemy to change that. Our mission is to provide infrastructure and tools that empower developers everywhere to accelerate their blockchain development, build better companies, and make the potential of blockchain a reality.
