New milestone: $2bn filled order volume
We are immensely proud at achieving a new major milestone: the total filled order volume has surpassed US$2 billion since the launch of Hummingbot Miner! The US$1 billion milestone in total filled order volume takes us one year; while with ever-increasing participation from liquidity miners, token issuers, and exchange partners, we spent only 4 months to reach the new US$2 billion milestone!
Introducing the NEW Eagle Club
Do you know that you might be qualified for the Eagle Club, our VIP program for power miners, in the future?
We are now excited to announce new qualification criteria for Eagle Club. Any miner who has earned 0.3% of the total four-week rewards distributed on Hummingbot Miner will be qualified. The calculation will be done every four weeks, not on a rolling basis. The first four weeks will be August 6, 2021 - September 2, 2021. The first new batch of Eagle Club members will be notified on September 2, 2021. The new criteria will be only applied prospectively from today. The existing Club members will not be affected.
Liquidity mining: July recap - we surpassed a few new milestones!
In July, we achieved several significant milestones: we surpassed the $2 billion mark in traded volume, the total number of active bots reached an all-time high of 1,103 bots, open order volume reached a new all-time high of nearly $1.2 million, and total cumulative rewards surpassed the $1 million mark. With current estimated yearly yields above 200%, liquidity mining allows them to earn higher yields than anywhere else in crypto.
