Bitget Wallet Strengthens MEV Protection with Flashbots Integration, Delivering a Superior On-chain Swap Experience
Formerly known as BitKeep Wallet, Bitget Wallet has now unveiled an upgraded MEV (Maximum Extractable Value) protection feature. By integrating with research and development organization Flashbots, Bitget Wallet aims to address the prevalent issue of MEV attacks across the Ethereum network, offering users a safer and more convenient on-chain trading experience.
The “MEV Protection” feature is now automatically enabled by default on Bitget Swap, the wallet’s integrated swap function, protecting users from potential risks such as front-running and ‘sandwich attacks’ when they perform on-chain token transactions on Ethereum using Bitget Swap. Additionally, leveraging Flashbots’ MEV-Share protocol allows Bitget Wallet to automatically return MEV profits generated from transactions to users without any additional actions required on their part.
MEV attacks occur when malicious actors manipulate and rearrange orders within a block, thus creating opportunities for illicit value generation by forcing other users to incur losses. Flashbots remains committed to refining the MEV market to achieve a more efficient, decentralized, and equitable on-chain environment, substantially reducing the adverse impacts of MEV and pre-execution strategies.
Earlier this year, Bitget Wallet entered into a collaboration with Flashbots, providing Bitget Swap users with access to the Flashbots transaction bundling method and optimizing the order of transaction execution to ensure transaction priority. This mechanism allows users to circumvent both potential MEV threats arising from varying execution sequences as well as transaction slippage. Bitget Wallet’s latest update brings with it an upgraded and more user-centric “MEV Protection” feature which is more distinctively recognizable for users performing trades on Bitget Swap.
Through this partnership, Bitget Wallet and Flashbots aim to jointly mitigate the negative consequences of MEV on the market, heighten overall transaction security, protect users from malicious actors, optimize transaction fees, avoid unnecessary costs, and propel the Ethereum ecosystem towards fairness and sustainable growth for all users.
With swap trading at its core, Bitget Wallet is dedicated to serving its global userbase as the most user-friendly and optimal Web3 trading wallet in the market. This collaboration further demonstrates and underscores the platform’s commitment to offering an unparalleled on-chain trading experience for all.
