📈 [Dashboard] Hummingbot Reported Volumes
Since Hummingbot is a community-driven open source project, transparency is one of our core values. We are excited to present a real-time dashboard that shows the daily aggregated, anonymized trade volume generated by Hummingbot users.
Just like Hummingbot, the reporting dashboard is highly configurable. Toggle the date range, use the filters to see volume per exchange and per Hummingbot version, and activate dark mode!

❌ Don’t fall for HBOT scams!
Finally, we have seen reports of scammers DM-ing users on Discord, Twitter and other channels advertising fake HBOT token sales, as well as bot spammers that impersonated the names & profile of Hummingbot Foundation team members.
If you see anyone trying to scam Hummingbot users, please report it in the new #scam-reports Discord channel.
Hummingbot Foundation has never conducted any pre-sale or sale of HBOT tokens, and anyone purporting to offer HBOT tokens is a scammer.
The only way to get HBOT tokens from the Foundation is to earn them via approved Hummingbot Governance Proposals and Hummingbot Improvement Proposals.
