Alchemy Pay Update | October and November 2021

It has been an extremely busy time at Alchemy Pay. October and November have seen a series of key partnerships, events, and developments. Integrations with leading blockchain networks Tron, NEAR, Polygon, and NEO, the foundation of the Blockchain Infrastructure Alliance, a new NFT project, a glowing report from TokenInsight, and the Lisbon Conference all add up to a fantastic couple of months!

Polygon Integrates Alchemy Pay’s Fiat Payment Channels

Polygon has partnered with us to enable Polygon and any Polygon-based protocol to set up fiat on-ramps. The new capability is expected to propel the next phase of growth for Polygon’s DeFi ecosystem. The partnership also means Polygon’s $MATIC token is now supported by our global merchant network. Learn more at blog.polygon.technology
