It used to be very simple to send a private transaction on Ethereum.

My aim is to perform a trade which would be fontrun if it was sent in the mempool or shared with all miners.
As there’s no way to protect the transaction I’m planning to perform, how to simply send my transaction privately simply using the usual web Zrx frontend ?

  • Flashbosts isn’t the kind of thing you use in the browser. It requires ɴᴘᴍ. A nightmare to install on Windows. Eden network isn’t free. Commented Nov 7, 2021 at 21:55

    No, with Taichi network, the transactions were only shared with SparkPool. And SparkPool could be trusted to not mess up with the submitted transactions up to some extent. Commented Nov 8, 2021 at 12:39
