chemistryA blockchain development company, has just announced that it has acquired Chainshot, an educational platform for Web3 developers. This is the first purchase in Alchemy’s history, and the company considers it a “major step towards free access to high-quality Web 3 education”.
As part of the purchase, ChainShot cycles, which previously cost up to $3,000, will be made available at no cost in the future, according to Ilan Halpern, the company’s head of developer relations. Alchemy declined to comment on the details of the sale.
Lack of educational opportunities
ChainShot was founded by Cody McCabe and Dan Nolan in 2018 after winning a hackathon project at ETH Denver. At the time, they realized that there was a huge lack of educational opportunities in the blockchain industry.
ChainShot provides Ethereum developers with the basic knowledge they need to build on, in the form of courses and boot camp, to create smart contracts and other blockchain applications. Topics covered include: Solidity Programming Language. Oracle decentralization. Cryptographic hashes and digital signatures.
Enrollments with the company have nearly tripled since January 2022, and the company claims to have enjoyed “enormous growth” over the past four years. Graduates of the program often find work with industry leaders.
“We took this opportunity to develop a platform, and what we’ve been trying to focus on is how can we improve that and how can we help Web2 developers in the Web3 space.”
For the foreseeable future, Alchemy will focus on attracting the wave of “amazing talent” pouring into the industry, Halpern stated.
