A case study in Miner Extractable Value

15

Quick Take

  • Miner Extractable Value (MEV) refers to the amount of profit that miners can extract from reordering and censoring transactions on the blockchain
  • Ethereum miners are increasingly taking advantage of the MEV opportunity. Recently, multiple mining pools were connected to a DEX arbitrage bot
  • At best, MEV can be additive to a blockchain’s security because it brings validators more fees. At worst, MEV may lead to consensus instability
