About Event

About the event is a one-day event in the heart of London, hosted by Nethermind and Flashbots. We bring together blockchain researchers and financial experts to explore the architecture of onchain trading, order flow, block building and the future of these evolving digital marketplaces.

What to expect?

  • In-depth exploration of block building on Ethereum and L2 platforms, highlighting both decentralized and centralized approaches.

  • Detailed discussions on emerging technologies and concepts like MEV-Share, SUAVE, and the evolving landscape of private computation.

  • Examination of the role of geographic decentralization and its implications within the block building ecosystem.

  • Examination of order flow in the context of MEV, and the factors that affect how transactions are sequenced and prioritized within blocks.

  • Analysis of the intersection between traditional finance order flow mechanisms and their blockchain counterparts, emphasizing how these paradigms converge and diverge.

  • And much more!
