The added value of this company lies in its Supernode product. Indeed, when a developer wishes to develop his application and test it, he will have every interest in going through his own validation node so as not to have to suffer from network congestion. However, this perspective represents a burden significant financial and technical and that’s where Alchemy comes in.
Supernode allows developers to have access to all the tools necessary for their work, without having to bother with the node maintenance of the blockchain on which they are located.
Alchemy already offers its services on multiple networksamong which we can for example mention Ethereum (ETH), Polygon (MATIC) and Optimism (OP).
Raj Gokal, the co-founder of Solana welcomes this novelty:
“We are really excited that Alchemy is now supporting Solana. Their launch will give developers greater access to high-quality infrastructure and tools. »

Services also integrated into the Phantom wallet
Phantom, the main non-custodial wallet on the Solana blockchain, is also opening up to these new tools. Alchemy’s interest in a wallet is that the company offers its own network connection RPCs. That is, the instructions needed to communicate between a user and a blockchain.
This is useful when the usual API connections don’t work or you want to use a different path, potentially faster. Last March, for example, when MetaMask users in Venezuela could no longer access Ethereum, Alchemy’s RPCs were then an alternative.
Francesco Agosti, CTO and co-founder of Phantom, expresses his excitement about Alchemy’s arrival on the network:
“Their infrastructure and suite of products are proven to improve performance. This will be a game-changer for Phantom and any other Solana developers who choose to start using Alchemy. »
While this week, Solana suffered her 8ᵉ outage of the year and that, in general, the rate of failed transactions remains high, any tool capable of bringing network stability is welcome.
However, despite the quality of its services, Alchemy could also be seen as a focal pointwhich is contrary to the values of a part of our community.
