🤖 Introducing Botcamp
We’ve found that the people who are making money using Hummingbot tend to be developers who have been able to customize and create their own strategies.
Therefore, we’re starting Botcamp: an intensive, hands-on, 4-week course where anyone can learn how to create market making and quant trading strategies using Hummingbot.
Botcamp aims to level up anyone into a professional market maker by teaching them to create and run quant trading scripts using Hummingbot! In the September beta cohort, 9 students successfully created their own quant trading scripts, and 3 were merged into this month’s v1.9.0 release as examples for future students!
We are starting the first official Botcamp cohort in November 2022 and will cap max enrollment at 20 seats to deliver a high-quality experience to each participant. Sign up today!

Governance Proposals (HGPs, HIPs, PRPs)
❌ 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.
