# Quick Start

Please note that Eden RPC is currently in public beta.

Eden RPC allows regular users to easily protect their transactions from frontrunners by using a custom RPC endpoint in their wallet. Everything should be the same for users, except transactions are sent to Eden, and then directly to Eden block builders, instead of the public mempool.

## Choosing the right gas price​

In most cases sending a transaction through Eden RPC should not require a higher gas price than normal. However, in periods of high load, you may want to increase gas prices to ensure your transaction is mined quickly. If the network is congested and you need your transaction quickly you could up your max fee to adjust for fluctations in base fee and set your priority fee to be 3 - 5 gwei.
