Sam hinted a few times on Telegram that Manifold will run its own MEV bot to acquire 100% of the surplus made by a MEV transaction, and use the extra time to improve the search.
This brings a few questions in mind:
- Will Manifold do any MEV available (e.g sandwiching, not just liquidations/arbitrages) ?
- If no, could we have a clear list (or an invitation to discussion) regarding the “forbidden pleasures” Manifold won’t touch?
- If Manifold doesn’t do them, will it accept bundles that do?
- Who makes the MEV in-house strategies?
- Can we think about a collaborative solution, where EV+ strats can be proposed to Manifold, and profits are shared between the strategist and Manifold?
