A New Oracle Mechanism Will Aid DApps in Recovering Millions Misplaced to MEV


The maximum extractable value (MEV) fees that users of decentralized applications (DApps) pay to miners are being sought after by a new oracle system (MEV). It is the most money a miner on a blockchain network may make from transactions that are in motion.

The maximum value that may be taken from block production above the typical block reward and gas fees is known as MEV. The MEV includes, among other things, arbitrage and liquidation fees that could reach millions and are frequently taken by block producers.

Oracle Extractable Value (OEV), a new Oracle solution, claims to change this by giving the extra money to the DApp rather than to outside parties and block makers. API3, a Web3 decentralized oracle service provider, has developed the idea of OEV, which aims to provide decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols with an extra revenue stream.

Participating in blockspace auctions, which were frequently conducted by third parties and block producers, is the conventional method of obtaining MEV. However, OEV-enabled oracles conduct auctions off-chain and sell the right to extract on-chain value to the same third-party searchers who previously bid for the blockspace.

Speaking about how the OEV oracles function and how it would benefit the DeFi ecosystem, core technical team lead Burak Benligiray said:

"OEV auctions will happen off-chain, which means even when there is a lot of value being extracted, gas prices will not be affected. Furthermore, proceeds of block space auctions are claimed by block validators, while OEV proceeds can be redirected to the dApps that create them."

Flashbot data indicates that block producers have amassed around $653 million in MEV. Flashbots is a centralized organization committed to effective and transparent MEV extraction.

The earnings from these auctions are subsequently returned to the DApps that originally created the value using OEV-enabled data feeds. By precisely updating when necessary, the OEV-enabled data feeds not only assist in collecting the MEV but also minimize it, achieving a zero deviation threshold.

Several networks that are compatible with the Ethereum virtual machine (EVM), including as Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, BNB Chain, Avalanche, Milkomeda, Fantom, and many others, offer OEV oracle services.
