Information on Flashbots
⚡ Flashbots is a research & development organization formed to mitigate the negative externalities and existential risks posed by MEV to blockchains, starting with Ethereum. Our primary focus is to enable a permissionless, transparent, and sustainable ecosystem for MEV, via a three-pronged approach:
- Illuminate: bringing transparency to MEV activity
- Democratize: democratizing access to MEV revenue
- Distribute: enabling sustainable distribution of MEV revenue
1️⃣ One roadmap with a dual-mandate
Create a decentralized block-building network to empower users and maximally decentralize public blockchains.
2️⃣ Two engines
Long-term oriented, collaborative Flashbots Research, and the milestone-driven, iterative Flashbots Product, form the dual engines that propel the organization forward.
3️⃣ Three product verticals
- Flashbots Auction: a marketplace for transaction ordering used by mining pools accounting for ~90% of Ethereum network hashrate.
- Flashbots Protect RPC: simple tools for users to protect themselves from frontrunning and optimize their transactions. Over half of blocks on Ethereum contain a transaction protected from frontrunning by Flashbots Protect.
- Flashbots Data: a suite of tools for increasing MEV transparency and reducing information asymmetry.
