GM Rollup Nation:

Matt Cutler, the MEV wizard, is back on the rollup. After learning the ins and outs of block building on Ethereum,
Matt and the team at Blocknative face regulatory and ethical dilemmas to which there was no easy solution. After long deliberation about the future of Ethereum, Matt and co decide to embrace Ethereum’s core values and stay true to their vision of decentralization and transparency in the emerging onchain economy.

Now, back on the rollup for the first time since the Merge, Matt unpacks his journey through Ethereum’s design space, economic mechanisms at the L2 level, the tradeoffs of restaking, and rollups in general. Always insightful conversations and valuable bits of information from Matt Cutler, CEO of Blocknative.
