Different approaches to tackling the MEV problem¶
There are largely 2 schools of thought when it comes to approaching the MEV problem
- Offense - MEV is here to stay so let's find a way to extract and democratize it.
- Defense - MEV is bad so let's try to prevent it.
As such we have put approaches into 2 categories
At Automata Network we are in the Defense camp. Our solution Conveyor ingests transactions and outputs transactions in a determined order. This creates a front-running-free zone that removes the chaos of transaction reordering.
