🤖 New Video: Managing Multiple Bots with Influx and Grafana
In an exclusive event for the Botcamp community, professional market maker Jelle shared how he used Hummingbot to:
Track market data of 15+ assets on 3+ exchanges using a single instance
Store the data in a time-series database like InfluxDB
Visualize the data using Grafana's open source software
❌ Don’t fall for HBOT scams!
Finally, we have seen reports of scammers DM-ing users on Discord, Twitter and other channels advertising fake HBOT token sales, as well as bot spammers that impersonated the names & profile of Hummingbot Foundation team members.
If you see anyone trying to scam Hummingbot users, please report it in the new #scam-reports Discord channel.
Hummingbot Foundation has never conducted any pre-sale or sale of HBOT tokens, and anyone purporting to offer HBOT tokens is a scammer.
The only way to get HBOT tokens from the Foundation is to earn them.
