🚀 We just shipped new Hummingbot v0.25.0!

In the past two weeks, we've worked extremely hard to make Hummingbot more resilient 💪 against market volatility. We also fixed a few critical issues that caused memory leaks. This is a huge release so please update your bots!

🆕 New Hummingbot forum/subreddit

We have deprecated our old Discourse forum and will start using our new subreddit where many more users have already had accounts. We welcome anyone to post discussions and hummingbot and liquidity mining-related topics there.

We have made this change since we plan to utilize the forum more heavily from now on. We're seeing an increase in the number of users since we launched Liquidity Mining, so we want to ensure that there's a place where users can upvote the most helpful discussion topics.

📋 Tips on recommended settings for new liquidity miners

Since liquidity mining is new and the crypto market is a LOT more volatile than before, our top priority is helping miners run market making bots safely and earn rewards without suffering losses due to market gyrations.

Here are some tips to run Hummingbot:

  1. Start conservatively: use wider spreads (any spreads lower than 5% on each side will earn some reward) and ratchet them inwards gradually.

  2. Use single order mode unless you are an experienced market maker. Multiple order levels are more complex and riskier.

Learn all the tips


📊 Liquidity mining two-week recap

In the two weeks since we've launched, despite the extreme volatility we saw last week and of course with all that's going on with the virus, we have had really positive and encouraging results so far.

📝 New blog post: Mapping the market maker landscape

Since we open sourced Hummingbot last year, we have learned a lot about the market making industry from speaking to many token projects, exchanges, and professional market makers about their experience.

In this blog post, we try to shed some light on this corner of the crypto world. Our goal is to help those who are contemplating hiring a market maker determine what questions they should ask prospective firms. We also provide a list of 31 crypto market making firms around the world.
