Stephane Gosselin is the Founder of Flashbots, an R&D organization that’s trying to fix the most pernicious problem in crypto—the problem of MEV (Maximum Extractable Value). 

Many of us are massively optimistic about crypto and aren’t worried too much about its future. However, this MEV thing could be our achilles heel.

On this episode, we dive into what Stephane and his team are doing to make MEV less of a potential weak point, how MEV works, and what our industry would look like if Flashbots didn't exist. And of course—so much more. 

This is another fundamental Bankless episode that you won’t want to miss.
