[Suspended] Blocknative Relay
The Blocknative Relay was suspended on September 27, 2023 at 8am PST.
Validators: Please modify your configurations as follows:
- Ensure your Validators are connected to multiple MEV-Boost Relays and have local building enabled.
- Remove the Blocknative Relay from your Validator configurations.
Builders: Please remove the Blocknative relay from your submission list.
The Blocknative Relay Data API will remain available for data downloads until October 4, 2023.
The Blocknative MEV-Boost Relay connects Validators to a permissionless set of builders for optimized staking rewards regardless of mempool conditions. With a proven performance edge during bursts of network congestion and rapid spikes in gas prices, Blocknative produces results.
The Blocknative Relay is based on the Dreamboat open-source relay code. As of Feb 14, 2023 there are only two unique, open-source MEV relay code bases: Dreamboat and Flashbots. Relay diversity, like client diversity, is important to strengthen the health of the Ethereum network. For redundancy and reliability we highly recommend connecting your Validator to at least one relay from each code base.
