All clients must start the gateways with an account, which has various features and priorities under different plans. The most noticeable features include streaming and using the API to send transactions fast. View a comparison of the different plans here.
Installation procedure is identical for Etherum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Polygon gateways. Users may run the bloXroute Python Gateway as a Docker container or using pip, and run the bloXroute Go Gateway as a Docker container.
To ensure that your Gateway will be able to connect to the Ethereum node, it is recommended that you add the Gateway as trusted peer. See Adding the Gateway As a Trusted Peer for instructions.
After a successful installation, the Gateway provides the node access to the BDN and will speed up block and transaction propagation to and from the node that it is peered with.
