Installation and Startup

Installation procedure is identical for Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and Polygon gateways. Users can run the bloXroute Local Gateway as a Docker container or use a local build based on the GitHub repository.

If you are running an Ethereum node, to ensure that your Gateway will be able to connect to it, we recommended you add the Gateway as a trusted peer of your execution layer client.

In some cases you will also need to Connect the Gateway to the Ethereum Consensus Layer.

After a successful installation, the will Gateway provide your node access to the BDN and will speed up block and transaction propagation to and from the node that it is peered with.
