Batch auctions are trading mechanisms that are deployed while placing individual orders by grouping them together. With a batch auction, the settlement price for all orders follows a uniform clearing pricing.
The benefits from the batch auction can be reaped in aggregated liquidity while ensuring a fair price discovery for both the traditional financial and decentralized trading world. In Blockchain, the batch auction plays a crucial role as well.
Starting from the initial token offering, buybacks of illiquid assets, batch actions can prevent MEV to a certain degree. This is fundamental because each trade is executed within a batch, resulting in zero effect on the price action.
