I'm trying to better understand flashbots impact on frontrunning. Can anyone help me understand why this sandwich attack tx from a Flashbots bundle would pay such a high gas price? Here is a similar question but I'm specifically interested in the Flashbots aspect as I thought that would avoid the high-gas requirement.
Here are the three transactions:
- Transaction 1 - attacker
- Transaction 2 - victim
- Transaction 3 - attacker (high gas)
And here are all the flashbot transactions for the block from the Flashbots API.
Any insight appreciated!
