dYdX MEV Dashboard Maintenance
This grant funds the Skip team's ongoing work for the dYdX MEV dashboard, to monitor and analyze "Sovereign MEV" within the dYdX ecosystem. Created in collaboration with the dYdX research team, this dashboard will measure MEV through its proxy metric - "orderbook discrepancy". The underlying goal is to combat the negative aspects of MEV, such as atomic sandwich attacks, and to promote the benefits from benign MEV instances like arbitrage. Find more details about the dashboard’s purpose and utility here - https://dydx.exchange/blog/update-on-mev.
MEV Dashboard Maintenance and Infrastructure
This is a follow-on grant to the previous Dashboard grant. As part of this grant, Skip will run between 5 to 10 custom geo-distributed dYdX nodes, modified to catch and measure specific MEV events for the existing MEV dashboard. The team will maintain the dashboard, with database services, uptime, and ongoing development. The grant will include submitting PRs and updating the dashboard as needed to continue measuring relevant MEV data.
