Hummingbot Bi-weekly #18

Welcome to the new Hummingbot Bi-weekly, where we describe the new features in each new Hummingbot release and provide updates on our rapidly growing Hummingbot ecosystem.

Note that this newsletter is now hosted on Substack. We think it’ll make our newsletters more interactive, retrievable and shareable. Hope you like it too!

πŸ™Œ See what’s new in Hummingbot v0.14.0!

Today, we shipped Hummingbot version 0.14.0. This release adds a new exchange connector: Huobi Global. Now users can run market making and arbitrage bots on one of the most active crypto exchanges in the world.

πŸ’° Make money contributing to Hummingbot

We have partnered with MARKET Protocol to launch a bounty to fund the development of a custom Hummingbot strategy.

You now have a chance to earn πŸ€‘1,250 DAIπŸ€‘ for making a custom strategy to provide liquidity for leveraged long LBTC tokens and short SBTC tokens using Hummingbot!

πŸ’¬ NEW! Hummingbot developer forum

Did you know that we just launched a forum for developers and crypto traders?

The Hummingbot DevForum is where you can request new features, learn how to customize and extend Hummingbot, and discuss algorithmic trading strategies with other members of the community.

We believe a forum in which all threads are easily searchable suits better for long-form discussions, and questions that many developers will have in common.

πŸ“ˆ Read our post about the Harmony liquidity bounty

Two months ago, in conjunction with our friends from Harmony Protocol, we started an experimental program called $ONE Makers to see if ordinary individuals using Hummingbot to run market making bots could effectively provide the same level of liquidity as professional market makers.

We analyze data from the program to answer the question β€œDoes community-based market making work?”
