📝 Developer Bounties Gaining Momentum
Last month, we started Bounties Board to reward developers with HBOT bounties for fixing bugs and building new Hummingbot components. It has been a smashing success, showing that Hummingbot’s decentralized, community-based maintenance model is viable.
Currently, Bounties Board has:
13 bug fixes merged and paid/pending payment
8 pull requests awaiting review
4 bounties assigned
6 open bounties
We would like to thank the following community members for participating in the bug bounty program and for their contributions in fixing bugs and improving the overall Hummingbot codebase.
Next, we plan to introduce bounties that reward developers for building or refactoring Hummingbot connectors to certified exchanges, such as perpetual connectors to FTX, Kucoin, and others.
See this forum thread for more information. Interested developers should contact Hummingbot Foundation team members on Discord.

❌ 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 via approved Hummingbot Governance Proposals and Hummingbot Improvement Proposals.
