🛸 NEW Hummingbot v0.20.0
Hummingbot version 0.20.0 has been released today!✌️
This release added Liquid Exchange and Bitcoin.com Exchange connectors! Additionally, it addressed a number of bugs, and improved developer usability by adding explanations in developer documentation.
Separately from the Hummingbot open source codebase, the team has been working hard on the Liquidity Mining infrastructure, with the first campaigns targeting a mid-January launch.

So how does it all work? In this post, our COO Carlo Las Marias explains in more detail the methodology and mechanics of the platform.
