Alchemy, a blockchain development platform, today announced that Optimistic Ethereum, one of the most highly anticipated layer-2 solutions for Ethereum, will officially be supported on the platform. This will enable developers to dependably leverage Optimism’s scaling capabilities.
The Optimism team, as pioneers of Optimistic Rollups, designed a system that enables instant transactions on Ethereum. With higher throughput, lower latency, and lower costs; their network will help Ethereum teams reach a new scale. Besides, Optimism gas costs are up to 35x cheaper than Ethereum’s.
Optimistic Virtual Machine (OVM) is compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM); which allows Ethereum developers to migrate existing smart contracts without breaking them.
“Optimistic Ethereum is poised to have a massive impact on the blockchain world with transformational tech, and has a talented team making it a reality. We’re excited to help power the ecosystem’s growth.”
– Nikil Viswanathan, CEO, Alchemy
Once live, users will be able to create an Optimism-powered app on Alchemy in just a few clicks. Furthermore, devs will instantly unlock Alchemy’s Supernode and developer tools that power some of the most successful projects on Ethereum today.
“Alchemy is a world class engineering team providing critical infra support to the Ethereum ecosystem.”
– Jinglan Wang, CEO, Optimism
The Optimism team continues to roll out their product on testnet and mainnet. However, Alchemy users can sign up now for the waitlist for early access opportunities.
