  1. I think cardano got around the centralization by having staking rewards drop when a node is oversaturated.

  2. Easy part : Throw cash at it.
    Hard part : Getting that cash.

  3. Cowswap and MistX…2 different AMM…with 2 different approach of solving MEV issue….try it…you guys gonna love it !

  4. On the back of my rear windshield I have the words "JUST SHARDED".

  5. Nano fixes this for basic digital money. Because there is no secondary utility in Nano, the only motivation is to process transactions quickly to support the network. Its one of the reasons Nano doesn't have any smart contracts.

  6. It’s my understanding that Hedera Hashgraph avoids the MEV issue. Is this correct? Are there any other protocols that aren’t susceptible to this issue?

  7. Nobody is front running ETH (not held) in an agency capacity. I trade volarb for a living and he should stick to his knitting.

  8. “so far, it’s being solved”. jaredfromsubway says otherwise

  9. Sharding, scaling – mention both prevalence in POW and pos , block proposers, the ability to choose which transactions to include in certain order, to increase the economic gains other than transaction fees, Also do not like the categorization of insider trading and front running (instead, front running is a special case of insider trading), mention the word, arbitrage strategies, —— the reasons for concern is that it provides much more incentive much more economies of scale for centralization , sophisticated algorithms, (centrliazatuon in terms of talents, technology, operations, etc.) flashbots, fire a wallet, bundles of transactions, separate the task, dimble blocknpropsers, accept the highest bid, economic design philosophy, solution you contain it, you separate it to be away of the layer that needs to be most decentralized,
