"Fetching even the most in-demand properties of an NFT, like it is image, forces developers to dig deep into the specifics of thousands of smart contracts and build mountains of custom logic and infrastructure," Alchemy said.
With the API, users can also verify NFT ownership or inspect an asset's transfer history. The new feature comes after Alchemy raised $250 million, bringing the company's valuation at $3.5 billion. The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) with other investors, including Coatue, Addition, DFJ, and Pantera. The latest fundraising brings the company's valuation at $3.5 billion.
