  • Alchemy has a history of making Web3 investments through its venture capital arm and a separate grants program. Last December, the firm created a VC arm to invest capital into large crypto companies such as OpenSea and Dapper Labs. And in June, the firm raised $25 million to create a grant program to bootstrap startups and developers building in the decentralized finance (DeFi) or non-fungible token (NFT) space.

    Alchemy declined to respond to CoinDesk’s request for comment.
