The Polygon gateway enables validators to start receiving blocks and bundles from the Marlin network.



There are 2 core components:

  • bundle gateway: Receives bundles from the Marlin network and passes them on to the validator
  • mev-bor: drop-in replacement for bor that uses the bundles to maximize validator fees

See here for setup instructions

In addition there are 2 optional components in order to send and receive blocks from the Marlin network. While they aren't needed for MEV extraction, they help in maximizing the time searchers have to create bundles. This increases competition among searchers and results in higher MEV extraction.
