:zap: In order to ensure The MEV Letter meets its objectives and provides an optimal reading experience, we’ve set up aoval 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:
