🏁 How to Connect to bloXroute

There are three ways to connect to the BDN, each of which requires you to register an account.

  1. Run a Gateway with a node

  2. Run a Hosted Gateway with a node

  3. Cloud-API (connect without a node)

Run a Gateway with a Node

Gateways peer with your node and propagate both blocks and transaction fast to your node. You can also subscribe to Transaction Streaming to receive a stream of new transactions that have been added to the TxPool and a stream of new transactions seen in the BDN. To install a Gateway, please follow the instructions available here.

Run a Hosted Gateway

Running to a Hosted Gateway is similar to running a Gateway, yet the convenience is you do not need to host and manage the Gateway locally.

To connect to a Hosted Gateway, please follow the instructions available here.

Cloud-API

Cloud-API supports sending Ethereum transactions fast and subscribing to Transaction Streaming.

Please follow the Cloud-API instructions to either subscribe to Transaction Streaming or send transactions.
