Read_755 – Drivechains

"A successful blind merge mined sidechain with significant MEV opportunities could offer Bitcoin significant benefits, which could more than offset the disadvantages." – "Blind merge mining works by a third party running the sidechain, building sidechain blocks and receiving the sidechain fees. This entity then creates a Bitcoin transaction, which passes on these fees to the Bitcoin miners in the form of Bitcoin transaction fees."

It would change the game and potentially be the last piece of the puzzle for a global, interoperable Bitcoin ecosystem where the entire world could truly and completely "hold their own keys." Are Drivechains the best solution, or is it lacking? The always thorough, Bitmex Research covers a great piece on the ins and outs of Paul Sztorc's Drivechain proposal which he has unrelentingly supported for nearly a decade now.
