The MEV Letter #43

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.

— Last week was packed with new content which results in this edition being longer than usual. To keep things neat and tidy, separate summaries will not be included for each relevant presentation at ZuBerlin, Preconf.wtf and DappCon24. These events are instead listed below with a single link for the reader to explore further.
