bloXroute network gateway for scaling blockchains

Project description

App description

  • bloxroute-gateway connects you to the BDN, a blockchain distribution network, to greatly speed up block propagation times and scale your blockchain today.

  • bloxroute-cli is also included.


This project depends on Python 3 and its development extensions. These instructions assuming you are running an operating system with Python 3 installed.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install python3-dev gcc


yum install gcc libffi-devel

Alpine Linux:

apk add build-base automake libtool libffi-dev python3-dev linux-headers


It's best to run this program inside of a virtual environment, especially if your system's default Python version is not 3.6 or 3.7. The recommended Python version is 3.7.

bloxroute-gateway has C++ extensions that are compiled per operating system, so this PIP package is distributed only as an Source Distribution. During installation, we require distro to determine the operating system version and requests to fetch the right set of C++ extensions from an S3 bucket.

pip install requests==2.22.0 distro
pip install bloxroute-gateway


$ bloxroute-gateway --blockchain-protocol [blockchain-protocol] --blockchain-network [blockchain-network]

If you are running an Ethereum gateway, you will also need to specify the public key of your Ethereum node:

$ bloxroute-gateway [...] --node-public-key [hex-encoded-key]

Supported Protocols and Networks for bloXroute Mainnet

  • BitcoinCash: Mainnet
  • Ethereum: Mainnet
