MEV Bundle Failure: Troubleshooting Why Your Bundle Didn’t End Up On-Chain
MEV Bundle Failure: Troubleshooting Why Your Bundle Didn’t End Up On-Chain
Opportunities for extracting MEV have exploded as DeFi has transformed into a multi-billion dollar industry. This has led to an increasing number of web3 participants turning to MEV searching as a potentially lucrative exercise.

The Importance of Client Diversity on Ethereum
The Importance of Client Diversity on Ethereum
TL;DR: Decentralized networks rely on nodes running a diversity of open standards and applications including peer-to-peer networking protocols, consensus algorithms, APIs, and open-source software. Following the  Ethereum Merge and the move to PoS, core functionality powered by execution and consensus clients becomes uniquely critical to the network’s future success. A network leveraging multiple, independent consensus and execution clients ensures  Ethereum validator nodes operate effectively, securely, and without disruption.

How to Use Blocknative to Leverage MEV Strategies & Get Bundles On-Chain
How to Use Blocknative to Leverage MEV Strategies & Get Bundles On-Chain
January 2023 Update: If you are an MEV searcher, Blocknative now offers an MEV bundle RPC endpoint. Searchers can interact with the RPC endpoint at https://api.blocknative.com/v1/auction. The API provides JSON-RPC methods for interfacing with Blocknative builders, which are documented via our bundle docs. MEV Searchers: How to leverage Blocknative to test and refine mempool strategies In 2020-2021 when Ethereum was a Proof-of-Work (PoW) chain, Flashbots launched as a research and development organization to mitigate the negative externalities of maximal (formerly miner) extractable value (MEV). Flashbots created tools, namely bundles (explained here), allowing searchers to bid on specific orders of transactions that they want to be included by miners, now validators. Fast-forward to Ethereum post-Merge and we now have a brand new ecosystem of block builders (like Blocknative), relays, and searchers centered around MEV-Boost. Builders compete for searcher's bundles and here at Blocknative, we provide all the tooling you need to get started as a searcher. In this post, we will answer common questions about how to use Blocknative’s mempool monitoring tools to submit bundles to builders like Blocknative and update this post with additional questions as they arise.

"After first building our own infrastructure, we appreciate that mempool management is a difficult, expensive problem to solve at scale. That's why we partner with Blocknative to power the transaction notifications in our next-generation wallet."
