🏆 Epoch 6 Connector Poll Results
We recently wrapped up the Epoch 6 polls, a quarterly initiative where HBOT holders decide on the distribution of the Foundation's maintenance resources and bounty budgets across various connectors in the Hummingbot codebase.
Results of the Epoch 6 polls have placed Binance, dYdX, and Ethereum as Gold-tier for Centralized Exchanges (CEX), Decentralized Exchanges (DEX), and Layer 1 Blockchain (Chain) connectors, respectively, for the October-December 2023 releases. Gold connectors are maintained by the Foundation and set the architectural standard for other connectors of that type.
We are grateful for the community's engagement! For a detailed breakdown of the results, read the full blog post.
🗣 Panel at Berkeley Blockchain Summit
On Tuesday November 7th, our co-founder Mike will be participating in the Surviving Crypto Winter: Navigating Startup Operation panel at the Berkeley Blockchain Summit.

👿 Don’t fall for scammers!
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 you or other Hummingbot users, please report it in the #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 via Bounties!
