Ethereum at Risk to Frontrunners: Researcher
Dan Robinson is a research partner with the crypto-asset investment firm Paradigm. He indicated that Ethereum is at risk to frontrunners. He added that Ethereum’s set of unconfirmed transactions is where the vulnerability lies. He noted that arbitrage bots examine pending transactions in the Ethereum and attempts are made to exploit the profitable opportunity created by them.
The arbitrage bots specifically look for certain transactions for the frontrunners. Frontrunners copy such transactions and replace such addresses with their own. Dan Robinson explained that he has devised a plan to extract the money in cooperation with a team of Ethereum engineers. The plan is to confuse the transaction so that the bots can not detect the connection to the Uniswap spouse. However, despite the efforts made the rescue plan failed.
