Maximal Extractable Value (MEV)

MEV is the maximum value that a validator can extract from block production. It provides rewards over and above the standard block reward and gas fees. We enabled MEV-boost right after The Merge and continuously work to mature the markets in Ethereum, Cosmos and other ecosystems. As a founding member of Flashbots ETH2 Working Group, Blockdaemon is working to ensure a democratized ETH MEV solution.

Restake with Blockdaemon on EigenLayer

Blockdaemon supports EigenLayer and various AVSs to give institutions staking on Ethereum the potential to receive additional staking rewards through restaking. Restaking enables staked ETH to be used as cryptoeconomic security for protocols other than Ethereum, in exchange for protocol fees and rewards.
