We are excited to launch the 4th Hummingbot governance proposal!

Votes for this current proposal will be based on Hummingbot Miner rewards, giving the ability to vote to community members who have been participating in and supporting currently active Hummingbot liquidity mining campaigns.

Proposal #4

Which of the following community-developed exchange connectors should be included into the core Hummingbot code base in the release v0.37.0?



☐ Binance Cloud

Similar to our previous governance votes, the Hummingbot core team will review, test, and incorporate the exchange connector for the winning exchange into our core code base, which will become an officially supported connector.

Voting Methodology

  • Votes per miner: the total votes each miner has is based on the total amount of mining rewards they have earned in the most recent weekly reward period. For example, a miner who earned $100 in the rewards period will have 100 votes.

  • Miner reward period: for the current proposal, the rewards period used to calculate total miner votes will be the most recently completed period: January 26, 2021 12:00 AM UTC to February 1, 2021 11:59 PM UTC

  • Reward amounts will be rounded up to the nearest whole vote: a miner who earned 0.01 of rewards is still entitled to 1 full vote, while a miner who earned 1.01 will have 2 votes, and so on. This allows for any miner who has earned any amount of rewards to have a minimum of 1 vote.


  • January 26, 2021 12:00 AM UTC to February 1, 2021 11:59 PM UTC: rewards period referenced for determining miner vote amounts

  • February 2, 2021: voting is opened

  • February 8, 2021 11:59 PM UTC: votes are tallied and outcome determined

  • v0.37.0 release time: Early March

The Candidates

Below are the three exchange connectors that you can vote for:

Altmarkets is a centralized cryptocurrency exchange that was established in 2018 and is located in the United Kingdom. There are 51 coins and 68 trading pairs on the exchange.

The connector was developed by one of our active community members, TheHoliestRoger, who has been an active contributor to the Hummingbot codebase and has committed to helping maintain the connector.


IDEX is the first Ethereum based decentralized smart contract exchange to support real-time trading and high transaction throughput. IDEX takes a hybrid approach, combining an off-chain matching engine with a layer 2 smart contract settlement system for custody and asset transfers.
