Chorus One will produce an in-depth report on MEV in dYdX v4, covering important topics like: validator perspective on the existing understanding of MEV in v4 and possibly new cases, assessing stakeholder interaction across validators and market makers to extract MEV opportunities, and the introduction of dYdX in the existing MEV ecosystem found across Cosmos based chains. The report will provide a better understanding of what to expect in terms of MEV as we migrate to v4.


The introduction of MEVĀ opportunities is among the most significant changes of the v4 migration. Existing participants and stakeholders are unsure of what to expect in terms of trading flow and execution with MEV opportunities potentially guiding decision making across validators. This report will provide resources to community members ahead of v4 to better understand and get a sense for how MEV may impact the new chain and trading experience.
