MEV relay list for Mainnet

Here is a list of MEV relays for the Ethereum Mainnet network. To add one to your mev-boost configuration, simply copy and paste the Relay URL in your -relays flag value. You can add multiple relays comma-separated to the -relays flag, like this: -relays https://relay1,https://relay2. If you are using multiple relays, the current algorithm for mev-boost will select the relay that offers you the most profit.

Selecting your relays can be an important decision for some stakers. You should do your own diligence when selecting which relay you want to use.
