The MEV Letter #26

The MEV Letter is a weekly collection of papers, articles and resources related to MEV. The intention of this letter is to provide a comprehensive summary of the latest research, discussions, and developments in the space, with links for further reading.

:zap: In order to ensure The MEV Letter meets its objectives and provides an optimal reading experience, we’ve set up a survey to better understand reader preferences and expectations.

We do not include any trackers in the emails, which means that we can not perform direct analytics on reader behavior. Instead, we rely on your feedback to optimize content and improve the publication further. The survey is quick and your engagement is very much appreciated. Thank you! :zap:
