SUPERHIGHWAY TRADING: The Fastest Blockchain Distribution Network | Uri Klarman

In today's episode Dan and Sam are joined by Uri Klarman, Co-Founder and CEO of BloXroute Labs. Uri and the guys first take stock of MEV boost transaction life cycles, Searcher/Builder integrations, and builder relays. Uri unpacks blockchain distribution networks and how BloXroute is the first ultra-fast BDN. Uri then shares his MEV end-state thesis, the Base Layer vs L2 conflict as a result, and the impacts of decreased block times across Ethereal vs Solana. Uri, Dan, and Sam then close out on the negative externalities as a result of blockchain distribution network efficiencies and the emerging validators requirement to enable instant inclusion. Enjoy!
