๐Ÿ” Introducing Hummingbot's new key encryption feature

In an effort to make our users' sensitive configuration settings such as private keys, exchange API keys and secrets more secure, we have added a new feature that allows you to encrypt and decrypt your sensitive information since the version 0.20.0. We explained how to use it, and how the new feature will benefit you.
