MEV Protection: How to avoid front-running and sandwiching bots
MEV Protection: How to avoid front-running and sandwiching bots
Listen to this post:   In the world of DeFi, transaction anxiety is a genuine concern—particularly when it involves high-value transactions. Many traders have experienced the unsettling feeling of uncertainty as they await the settlement of their transactions. There’s a hidden maze of complexity happening between the moments your transaction is sent to the mempool and when it settles on-chain that many people rarely think about.

Exploring Order Flow Auctions (OFAs), MEV, and the Fair Distribution of Economic Opportunities
Exploring Order Flow Auctions (OFAs), MEV, and the Fair Distribution of Economic Opportunities
Listen to this post:   Order Flow Auctions (OFAs) are quickly gaining popularity in the Ethereum ecosystem. These systems are designed to help end users benefit from the economic opportunities their transactions create for others in MEV (Maximal Extractable Value) extraction. But how do we fairly distribute these opportunities among MEV searchers, end users, and block proposers? This blog will examine what exactly Order Flow Auctions are, why they matter, and what fair distribution of economic opportunities may look like.

What is MEV Sandwiching?
What is MEV Sandwiching?
Listen to this post:   Sandwiching represents a single category under the overarching classification of Maximal Extracted Value (MEV)—the value derived from transaction inclusion and ordering. This value is not only lucrative for the MEV searcher, but also for the validators that receive the bulk of the transaction fees, the block builders that include the searcher's transactions to create more profitable blocks, and the protocols that benefit from arbitrage trading that keeps prices relatively consistent across DeFi.

"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."
