Flashbots’ MEV-Boost is now live on Coinbase Cloud. Our ETH staking customers can now opt-in to receive MEV (maximal extractable value) rewards enabled by proposer-builder separation (PBS). Coinbase Prime and Retail customers staking ETH will earn additional rewards automatically 2/ MEV-Boost is a free and open-source middleware. It implements PBS, which minimizes the negative externalities of MEV by creating a competitive marketplace for builders to form profitable blocks and trustlessly communicate with proposers (validators) through relays.

1/ Congratulations to the @0xPolygon team for the announcement of their Polygon #zkEVM! This a huge feat for scaling Ethereum and zk technology.

What’s difficult about zk proofs and scalability, and how does the Polygon zkEVM try to solve them? Read on… 🧵 2/ Zk proofs are time-intensive and expensive to generate.
