The post Solana Foundation Removes Validators Over Sandwich Attacks appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News

The Solana Foundation has announced the removal of a group of validator operators from its delegation program over their involvement in sandwich attacks on Solana users. Sandwich attack is a type of front-running exploit where an attacker places two transactions around a victim’s transaction to profit from the price changes. Notably, Sandwich attacks are against the rules laid out by the Solana Foundation. The Solana Foundation Delegation Program was set up to help the validators operate by validating SOL tokens, removing the need to hold a substantial amount of tokens.
