Hummingbot Bi-weekly #39

Welcome to the Hummingbot Bi-weekly, your regular dose of updates about new features πŸ€–, upcoming events πŸŽ‰, and announcements from our rapidly expanding community πŸ‘ͺ!

Hope this issue finds you and your ❀️loved ones safe and strong πŸ’ͺ. Subscribe to never miss any new issue.

πŸš€ We shipped new Hummingbot v0.29.0 with new Scripts feature and ETERBASE connector

Today we released the new v0.29.0! This release introduces a new feature that allows users to run custom scripts that allow you to control your bots dynamically, a new ETERBASE connector and fixed a bunch of bugs.

πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Note from our CEO: Infinite Configurability

With the rollout of the new Scripts feature in this release, we are embarking on a journey to make Hummingbot more customizable and configurable. Scripts are mini Python functions that allow users to change the behavior of their bots on the fly in response to market conditions.

Over the next few releases, we plan to add more features that improve configurability, such as better documentation for the Developer Tutorial, the ability to send commands to Hummingbot from external apps like TradingView, and more seamless ways to integrate to different protocols as well as exchanges.

This ability for our users to customize their strategies is extremely important because trading is a competitive sport. Our data shows that experienced users who take the time to research and test different configurations before running them with real capital do much better than users who just run the default, out-of-the-box strategies.

Long-term, our goal with the Hummingbot codebase is to give our users as much flexibility as possible, while still keeping the basic version easy to use.

πŸ₯ž DeFi's recent biggest hit is yield farming/liquidity mining, which is like Uber giving shares to early drivers and riders, argued a researcher. However, today if any token that isn’t ERC-20 wants to take advantage of liquidity mining, Hummingbot is the only game in town.

πŸ₯ The total value locked in various DeFi protocols has surpassed $2 billion. Compound is now the top DeFi protocol, snatching that position from MakerDAO. Learn more.
