Alchemy is bringing its blockchain node infrastructure to Solana

Alchemy, the Ethereum-based node infrastructure provider, said Thursday it is expanding to the Solana blockchain.

With this expansion, the firm will allow Solana developers to scale their blockchain infrastructure requirements. Currently, Alchemy offers a node API service for Ethereum and Polygon applications. Popular apps like 0x, Aave, dYdX, OpenSea, Nifty Gateway use Alchemy’s offering, called Supernode, to connect to blockchains, a process called Remote Procedure Call (RPC).

In the coming weeks, the Supernode will provide Solana applications in areas such as DeFi, NFTs and wallet services with a gateway to link to Solana clusters. It will compete with other node infrastructure players on Solana like QuickNode, Triton, and Syndica.

Phantom, the leading Solana-based wallet, confirmed it will be integrating Alchemy. 

Alchemy raised $200 million in February 2022 in a funding round led by Silver Lake.
