Building Prosperous Web3 Together with Neo
Before this collaboration, Alchemy Pay and Neo have forged a robust and mutually beneficial partnership, positioning themselves as founding members within the Blockchain Infrastructure Alliance (BIA). Notably, Alchemy Pay has seamlessly integrated Neo’s token into its fiat-crypto gateway to simplify transactions for users within Neo’s ecosystem. Moreover, Alchemy Pay has introduced its ramp solution to the Neo ecosystem, allowing developers building on Neo to leverage the direct-to-customer plugin. This integration provides developers with accessible fiat-crypto solutions and the necessary support for their projects.
With the regulatory landscape in the APAC region becoming increasingly favorable, the Neo APAC Hackathon presents a significant opportunity for Alchemy Pay and Neo to strengthen their collaboration. Alchemy Pay, driven by its general mission to bridge the gap between fiat and crypto economies on a global scale, is eager to actively contribute to the industry’s growth. The company is committed to identifying and supporting talented teams that can facilitate the connection of traditional users to the crypto space, thus expanding their presence in a broader territory.
