3.3 Vitalik’s new article：How much can we constrain builders without bringing back heavy burdens to proposers? link
On 3th October, Vitalik published a new article, giving one logical response to builder centralization dangers (censorship, economic exploitation) is to limit their power. Builders who win an auction would have less authority to create the entire block. This capability should be adequate to capture practically all MEV and other PBS advantages, but it should be reduced to minimise misuse.
Instead of auctioning off the right to decide everything in a block, auction off the right to decide some things, where those “some things” could be much more nuanced than “the builder chooses the first half of the block and not the second”: you could give the builder the right to reorder, prepend, append, and you could even constrain the proposer. This post discusses different approaches and their drawbacks.
