MEV and Front-Run Protection

Understanding MEV

Maximum Extractable Value (MEV) has emerged as a central term in Ethereum's intricate ecosystem. At its core, MEV denotes the surplus profit that block builders and validators can achieve by strategically including, excluding, or reordering transactions within a block. While MEV can be pivotal in achieving a balanced ecosystem, it inadvertently paves the way for exploitation, notably in the realm of token swaps.

The Devastation of Frontrunning & Sandwich Bots

In 2022, traders experienced staggering losses exceeding $800 million due to malicious activities like sandwich attacks. For many traders, sandwich bots are not just a nuisance but a devastating financial blow, especially prevalent when trading tokens with minimal to no taxes. These cunning bots are adept at identifying potential arbitrage opportunities in real-time. Once they sense a profitable scenario, they place buy orders right before your transaction, only to follow it up with sell orders immediately after. This "sandwiching" technique allows them to exploit the slightest of price differences for their gain. Further compounding the problem, block builders, drawn by the allure of higher earnings from these bot-induced transactions, often prioritize their inclusion, leaving genuine traders at a significant disadvantage.
