Introducing MEV Protection: Secure Your Swaps with Trust Wallet

Key Takeaways

Empowering Secure Swaps Across the Web3 Ecosystem

Trust Wallet is delighted to introduce the addition of the MEV Protection feature. This comes hot on the heels of our recent upgrade to the Swaps feature, which now offers even more seamless exchanges with over 1M+ token pairs across expanded networks and additional providers.

MEV Protection is specifically built to safeguard your transactions from the challenges of Miner Extractable Value (MEV), such as sandwich attacks and front-running. This serves as a continuation of our commitment to enhancing your crypto experience, ensuring that every transaction is secure and fair. This aligns seamlessly with Trust Wallet’s mission to offer a secure, user-focused Web3 experience.

Understanding MEV Attacks

Miner Extractable Value (MEV) attacks exploit the order of transactions within a blockchain. Through strategies like front-running or sandwich attacks, miners or bots can manipulate transaction orders to profit at the expense of regular users. This can lead to increased slippage, less favorable execution prices, and a generally unfair transactions environment.

What is MEV Protection?

MEV Protection is a feature designed to shield your transactions from these attacks. It ensures that your swaps are executed fairly, without being disadvantaged by MEV strategies. This layer of protection maintains the integrity of your transactions, making your swapping experience more secure and equitable.

How Does MEV Protection Benefit You?
