MEV, Front running, and arbitrage Protection for Sushi users
Sushi Guard protects you from ‘MEV’ - Maximal Extractable Value.
It is built using a service called OpenMEV from Manifold Finance.
MEV is the crypto-version of arbitrage trading / high-frequency trading that you typically see on Wall Street. Arbitrage bots are used to monitor the network, and when you submit a transaction, they will submit a transaction of their own and "bribe" the miner to place their transaction before yours and ten after your transaction. This is called "Sandwiching". This has the effect of manipulating price and volume and is used to make a profit from your trades.
Sushi Guard mitigates this type of malicious MEV by leveraging the power of Flashbots, Eden Network, and Manifold Finance's OpenMEV network.
✅ Sushi Guard protects traders from MEV: Maximal Extracted Value. MEV occurs when arbitrage bots see your transaction and use it to arbitrage against other users to extract value from it.
