The BackRunMe solution enables users to conduct confidential transactions resistant to front-running and sandwich attacks. Users are able to avoid network congestion and quickly receive important trading information, such as market orders.
bloXroute CEO Uri Klarman has said:
"DeFi is peer-to-peer. You need to be connected with everyone because critical information — prices, position, arbitrage opportunities — can come from everywhere. This is where BloXroute comes in. We propagate DeFi information almost at the speed of light, allowing our users to make better trades."
