Introducing Liquidity Mining | Hummingbot Bi-weekly #22

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!

🌊 Introducing Liquidity Mining

We are excited to introduce Liquidity Mining, a new way you can earn passive income by running Hummingbot!

We call this liquidity mining because the concept is similar to proof-of-work mining. Rather than setting up a mining rig and using electricity, users utilize computational power and token inventory to run the Hummingbot market making software. By competing with other participants to earn rewards posted by our partners, they can earn passive income while helping to provide a liquid, smooth trading experience for other traders.

Our simulations show that liquidity miners may be able to earn returns of 10-50% per year (higher than staking/lending/HODL-ing) while token issuers and exchanges may be able to save 5-10x versus hiring a market maker.

πŸ”‘ NEW Hummingbot v0.18.0

Hummingbot version 0.18.0 has been released!

This release marks the first time we are publishing pre-compiled native MacOS and Windows binaries. Now, you can just click the Download button and install Hummingbot on your desktop without having to using the command line or Docker.

In addition, this release includes the new Dolomite connector, a new decentralized exchange that built a 3rd-party Hummingbot connector, updated documentation on how to build Hummingbot connectors, and important bug fixes.

πŸ€™ Help us design the Liquidity Mining app together!

As an open source project, we are radically transparent about everything we do, and we believe only with you, our community members, can we achieve a height that we’ll never be able to achieve by ourselves.

So we invite you to participate in the design sessions for the new Liquidity Mining app. We’re working with our friends from Deep Work Studio, an innovative design studio that leverages design sprints to build better products collaboratively.

You can watch our live discussion and provide your feedback simultaneously. The schedule is as below:

November 4th - watch replay
Presenting Research
In this 30-min session I will briefly give an introduction to the team and project, how the Design Sprint works and which goal we set ourselves. We will also go through everyone's individual examples from their research and show what's interesting about them. The session will conclude with a few words on what will happen next.

November 5th - 20:30 UTC
User Story Map
In this 30-min session, viewers will be able to see a highly structured and very useful team exercise to collaboratively come up with a user story. Our designer will also show what happened since the first session, walk through the drawn concepts and explain how we will draw the storyboard.

November 12th - 17:00 UTC
Wrap up and Q&A
This session will show how our designers come up with the storyboard, and design and test the prototype. Your questions will also be answered.

πŸŽ™οΈ Hummingbot Live Halloween edition replay

This past episode is our very β€œcrypooky” Halloween edition. In this episode, we interviewed Paul Gebheim from Augur Project, a decentralized prediction market protocol. Together, Mike, our CEO and Paul discussed how important it is to have automation for deploying strategies in brand new markets such as sports betting on Augur, and envisioned what a Hummingbot market making strategy for sports betting would be like in Augur v2.

To make Hummingbot Live more interactive and engaging, we are changing its format to a bi-weekly interview featuring community members and interesting projects. So the next show will be happening on November 21.
