In this week's bonus interview, we are joined by Blocknative CEO and Co-founder Matt Cutler to dive into the world of MEV and order flow on Ethereum. They explore how the proof-of-stake transition has impacted block building, the economics and incentives faced by builders and relays, and the prevalence of private order flow. Matt shares his thoughts on protocol changes like MEV-Geth and burning and how to make order flow more equitable for users. Looking ahead, he discusses how L2 scaling could reshape MEV dynamics and why Blocknative remains committed to improving Ethereum despite its flaws.
