Developer backend Alchemy has acquired blockchain educational platform ChainShot to bolster its resources for bringing on and training Web3 builders, the company said Thursday in a blog post.
Alchemy did not disclose the valuation of the acquisition.
Elan Halpern, product manager at Alchemy, told CoinDesk that Alchemy’s mission to support Web3 developers is propelled through its acquisition of ChainShot, providing resources to improve their blockchain fluency. ChainShot, creator of an entry-level Ethereum builder bootcamp, will provide its educational framework to Alchemy users.
“What we found was that [ChainShot] was the most comprehensive way for a developer to really level up and gain the skills they need to gain in order to either secure a job as an engineer in Web3, or start their own protocol or do something else in the space,” said Halpern.
