Alchemy Grants​

Alchemy has a single grant program called WAGBI, which stands for “We’re All Gonna Build It”, consisting of a 25 million USD Developer Grant to support community developers building projects like DeFi protocols, NFT experiences, or any project that helps bring Web3 to the world. Each project may be eligible to receive up to $50,000 in credits. Grant format will be rewarded as credited compute units (CUs) on Alchemy’s developer platform.

The credits can be used to subscribe to the premium tiers of Alchemy’s developer platform. Grant winners will have the WAGBI grant applied to their account, which will automatically give access to Alchemy’s Growth Tier account ($49). The remaining amount of the monthly grant will be applied as a discount on the winner’s autoscale spend after the Growth Tier quota. For example, a winner with a $1k grant will have $49 applied to cover their Growth Tier fee and $951 to use in autoscale demand. More information can be found in the form of FAQs on the Alchemy WAGBI Grant webpage.

WAGBI Grants are for developers who are starting in web3 and are ready to begin building. Applications are now open and grants will be rolling out in early July 2023.
