Use case

The eth_newBlockFilter method is particularly useful for applications that need to stay synchronized with the latest state of the blockchain, such as wallets, block explorers, or decentralized applications (DApps) that react to new blocks. It provides a more efficient way to monitor the blockchain for new blocks compared to polling the latest block number.
