Introducing: eth2-package - get a private testnet with native support for mev-boost infra

Hello! I’m Derek from Kurtosis, a small startup building devtools for building, testing, and deploying of web3 infrastructure.

We’ve recently added support for the Flashbot’s implementation of PBS to our eth2-package! In a single command, spin up a full Ethereum private devnet with the entire mev-boost infrastructure connected and ready to go. We support all major EL and CL clients (including Reth!) and Kurtosis works over Docker and Kubernetes, meaning you can scale the network to any size you need, anywhere you want.

We announced this at MEV-Boost Community Call #5 and are sharing it here in the hopes that others might find this useful for their testing & development needs.

Several teams (flashbots, ethereum foundation, client teams, etc) have already picked this up and have begun to use it and our roadmap includes adding support for Dencun.

If you’re curious, check it out here and our guide on how to get started here.

Please reach out if you’ve got questions or feedback - we’d love to hear from you. Cheers!
