bloXroute (blocks’ route) is on crypto’s cutting edge, and we’re looking for the right engineers to join us.

TL;DR  bloXroute & DeFi
Just like the “Flash Boys”, who made billions by connecting Chicago and NYC to be slightly faster than any other trader, bloXroute’s Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN) allows DeFi (Decentralized Finance) traders to be make better trades by being better connected. The key difference is that in the decentralized world of DeFi, you need to be connected to everyone.
