What New Alchemy does?

The company helps solve the problem of token economies, which involves structuring the economy around the token. The economy here is the entire system of staking or other actions taken with a currency.

Main problems Blockchain companies face

One of such problems is trying to fit a token into a network that does not need it to exist. When brands introduce an asset that many people do not understand, it must affect the adoption rates.

What makes New Alchemy stand out?

The company has been in the business for a considerably long time and took off at the technological aspect of the business. They started by handling smart contract audits and identifying vulnerabilities in the industries. The brand also handles branding, marketing and more.

Branding and PR for Blockchain companies

The most important thing when it comes to token issuance is to build a strong community. This gives the brand a good reason to exist. And with the right technological capability and participation of a good adviser, your token should be ready for testing before it is released into the market.

How can you build a community?

Get involved and attract new people and engage them because the social activities around an asset matter a great deal. The founder must listen to community members and not outsource this responsibility. No matter how daunting the task may be, remaining an active part of the community helps grow it and keep members in check.
