Introducing Alchemy Notify: Bringing Notifications to Blockchain Apps
Today we are excited to launch Alchemy Notify, a new product for the Alchemy blockchain developer platform that solves one of the most critical UX problems in blockchain: real-time notifications for transactions and events.
In contrast to seamless modern-day online purchases with instant confirmation, blockchain transactions often require continuous monitoring and page refreshing while waiting for blocks to be mined. The entire blockchain transaction ecosystem is predicated on this necessity for constant attention and this friction is often enough to turn away users with money in transit.
Studies show that daily push notifications can increase user retention by up to 820%. This demand only grows as products scale and reach new users. Alchemy Notify delivers instant feedback and peace of mind for users, which translates into higher engagement and increased word-of-mouth for app developers.
“Push notifications are an indispensable part of enabling the UX that users demand. Notifications have helped us build the greatest possible wallet experience at MEW, and are critical to the whole dApp ecosystem thriving.”
-Kosala Hemachandra, CEO of MyEtherWallet.
With Alchemy Notify, we’re pleased to say that blockchain developers are an important step closer to delivering experiences to which users of traditional applications are accustomed.
“Alchemy Notify is a game-changer for us and a game-changer for any developer building a dApp. Building and maintaining this on your own is extremely hard, and Alchemy Notify completely removes the pain point.”
-Yash Nelapati, Founder of Makersplace and Employee #1 at Pinterest.
At Alchemy, we’re fanatical about listening to developers and delighting them with new solutions to continually improve their applications. We believe our obsession with our customers is the biggest reason Alchemy is the leading blockchain developer platform relied upon by MyEtherWallet, Dharma, Kyber, Maker, 0x, and others.
