MEV Protection Tutorial

What is an MEV attack?

MEV, in a sandwich attack, involves front-running. A user's transaction triggers a bot to strategically execute a buy before and sell after profiting from price differences and the front-running tactic.

How to prevent MEV?

To avoid MEV attacks, you can send your transactions to some private nodes (e.g. Flashbots) to ensure that your transactions are executed properly. If you send a transaction to a private node, you need to wait for the transaction to be uploaded before confirming its status so the transaction will be a bit slower.

TokenPocket's MEV protection feature will reduce slippage and avoid MEV attacks, making transactions more secure.
