How Aleph Zero Prevents MEV: Podcast Key Takeaways
In the newest episode of the Aleph Zero Podcast, we meet with Filip Bielejec, Ph.D, to discuss the maximal extractable value (MEV) challenge, its effects on blockchains, their users, and most importantly, how Aleph Zero mitigates the adverse effects of this phenomenon.

Aleph Zero reduces the negative effects of MEV. How?
Maximal Extractable Value prevention has to do with the design of the network, as well as recognizing certain benefits of MEV that should be retained to ensure a healthy ecosystem. The MEV occurs when block builders/arbitrageurs re-order transactions before they are appended to the blockchain. This happens because block builders/arbitrageurs have access to the mempool.
