How will this Delegate Mission Request help accomplish the above Intent?
1. ERC4337 service
BlockPI Network is a decentralized multi-chain infrastructure provider, offering one-stop RPC services for web3 users. With the development of AA moving forward and started to making an impact in the whole Web3 industry, as a pioneer in the AA industry, we are committed to pushing AA service (ERC-4337 Bundler service and AA Explorer, supported and granted by Ethereum Foundation) forward to provide a better user experience for all Web3 users.
Specifically, we aim to establish ERC4337 Bundler and Explorer services to support AA user activities on OP. Users are able to send ERC-4337 RPC requests and interact with UserOps to BlockPI Network with the same RPC endpoint. BlockPI will route these requests to ERC-4337 Bundlers. We have cooperated with Candide, Stackup, Etherspot and Pimlico and integrated their open-source Bundler clients in the BlockPI RPC service network. All those Bundler clients are currently run by the BlockPI team to ensure the best quality of service. Users are allowed to choose which bundler client to process their request. Also, there is also an Auto function, which will let our load balancer select a suitable client server for the user based on the performance and health status of all the client servers. Check Bundler Service - BlockPI Network for more Bundler service info.
AA Explorer (https://aaexplorer.com/) is an Account Abstraction browser focusing on MEV Analysis and data visualization for the convenience of AA users and developers. Ethereum mainnet is currently onboarded. Once OP is supported. Users and developers are able to access the explorer and see all the OP ERC4337 data for free.
