Developers building on Polygon now have Alchemy’s toolkit at their disposal.
Ethereum’s limited throughput and mercurial gas fees have prompted many developers and users alike to turn to layer 2 solutions like Polygon, which offers faster transactions and cheaper fees – 500 times cheaper in some cases, according to Alchemy Product Manager Mike Garland.
Alchemy’s Polygon tie-up is symbiotic, Garland said: Alchemy’s developers gain access to Polygon and teams building on Polygon gain access to Alchemy’s developer platform, along with its infrastructure and developer tools. It’s a combo meant to fuel ecosystem growth.
