MEV Relay (For Validators)
Node operators should set up MEV-Boost to connect to bloXroute MEV relay.

Setup MEV-Boost

Please refer to mev-boost usage instructions and a full set of setup instructions in the testing guide on GitHub.
Mev-boost is available on Github or Docker Hub.

Relay Types

bloXroute provides three types of MEV relays that validators and builders can connect to:
  1. 1.
    Max profit: Relay that propagates all available transactions/bundles with no filtering.
  2. 2.
    Ethical: Relay that propagates non-frontrunning bundles and private transactions. bloXroute tries its best to filter out MEV bundles that execute strategies like generalized frontrunning and sandwiching.
  3. 3.
    Regulated: Relay that propagates all available transactions/bundles except the ones sent from/to wallet addresses that are sanctioned by OFAC.

Relay Endpoints

Ethereum Mainnet Validators
Validators with mev-boost can connect to the Eth Mainnet bloXroute MEV relay to receive full blocks proposed by bloXroute after The Merge. Validators will be able to choose one of the MEV relay types and add it to mev-boost -relays startup argument:
  • Max profit relay: https://0x8b5d2e73e2a3a55c6c87b8b6eb92e0149[email protected]bloxroute.max-profit.blxrbdn.com
  • Ethical relay: https://0xad0a8bb54565c2211cee576363f3a3470[email protected]bloxroute.ethical.blxrbdn.com
  • Regulated relay: https://0xb0b07cd0abef743db4260b0ed50619cf6[email protected]bloxroute.regulated.blxrbdn.com
Validators can append ?id= parameter to the end of relay URL. For example:
./mev-boost -mainnet -relays https://0x8b5d2e73e2a3a55c6c87b8b6eb92e0149[email protected]bloxroute.max-profit.blxrbdn.com?id=validator-name
It is recommended to connect to both Flashbots relay and bloXroute relay.
​

Ropsten Validators

Validators with mev-boost can connect to the Ropsten bloXroute MEV relay in order to receive full blocks proposed by bloXroute. Validators will be able to choose one of the MEV relay types and add it to mev-boost -relays startup argument:
  • Max profit relay: https://0xb8a0bad3f3a4f0b35418c03357c6d4201[email protected]builder-relay.virginia.ropsten.blxrbdn.com
Validators can append ?id= parameter to the end of relay URL. For example:
./mev-boost -ropsten -relays https://0xb8a0bad3f3a4f0b35418c03357c6d4201[email protected]builder-relay.virginia.ropsten.blxrbdn.com?id=validator-name .
It is recommended to connect to both Flashbots relay and bloXroute relay. Validators can use the example below to start mev-boost with two relays:
./mev-boost -ropsten -relays http://0xb8a0bad3f3a4f0b35418c03357c6d4201[email protected]builder-relay.virginia.ropsten.blxrbdn.com?id=validator-name,https://0xb124d80a00b80815397b4e7f1f05377cc[email protected]builder-relay-ropsten.flashbots.net

Goerli Validators

Validators with mev-boost can connect to the bloXroute MEV relay in order to receive full blocks proposed by bloXroute. Validators can use the max profit MEV relay endpoint below:
  • Max profit relay: https://0x821f2a65afb70e7f2e820a925a9b4c80a[email protected]bloxroute.max-profit.builder.goerli.blxrbdn.com
Validators can append ?id= parameter to the end of relay URL. For example:
./mev-boost -genesis-fork-version 0x00001020 -relays https://0x821f2a65afb70e7f2e820a925a9b4c80a[email protected]bloxroute.max-profit.builder.goerli.blxrbdn.com?id=validator-name
