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.
