As always. our discord server is the place to bug us in case you have any queries or want to discuss all things Marlin and Layer 0. For community-related discussions, our Telegram channel is the place to be!
- The mev-inspect-py tool has been repurposed to work with go-ethereum based clients and has been used to successfully detect arbitrages on Polygon. Efforts are underway to submit PRs to upstream.
- The Ethereum and Polygon gateways have been updated to work with eth/66 protocol.
- Contracts are being deployed and tested on Arbitrum. We are still working out what a potential migration would look like.
- Cancellation functionality was added to the bridge.
- Introduced MEV support for Polygon!
🧙 Validators in the Polygon network looking to increase their income by including MEV bundles.
🤓 dApp devs who want to protect user's txs from frontrunning.
👀 MEV searchers interested in prioritizing bundles.
🐟 The bundle format and transaction ordering rules remain as they are on Flashbots Ethereum. Validators will be required to run mev-bor (https://github.com/marlinprotocol/mev-bor) which is based on mev-geth.
✅ Users, devs & validators interested in participating in the alpha release can register their interest by filling this form (https://forms.gle/h7gy9NsCFAiNnndT8).
🤓 Instructions for validators to install the gateway to enable communication between mev-bor and the Marlin relay can be found in our docs (https://docs.marlin.pro/books/polygon-gateway/page/overview-033).
💰 mev-inspect on ETH suggests that over USD 711m has been extracted since the start of 2020. We’re expanding mev-inspect to add support for Polygon-based dapps to analyze MEV opportunities in Polygon and are in touch with some other chains as well.
⚡️ The relay used here will initially be permissioned. Bundles will only be visible to the validator whose chance it is to produce the block. We expect to decentralize the relay and add privacy-protecting features over time in conjunction with Flashbots’ efforts.

- Governance Proposals
Put two governance proposals up for vote:
1. The proposal to update the MPond-Pond bridge parameters was passed.
MPond requests placed can now be converted to POND linearly over the course of 182 days after the date of the conversion request (0.55% will be eligible for conversion every day over 182 days).
Conversion requests can be placed via the bridge.
Points to note regarding placing MPond conversion requests:
2. Proposal to rebalance the reward distribution formula for POND and MPond delegators did not pass due to insufficient votes.
