We are thrilled to launch a new liquidity mining campaign on KuCoin for Symbol, NEM’s new enterprise-facing Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain platform for custom security token management and trading! The campaign will start on March 30, 2021 12:00 AM UTC.

Democratizing crypto market making with NEM

The Hummingbot team has teamed up with NEM since the first NEM (XEM) liquidity mining campaign launch on Binance.com in November 2020. The preliminary result has shown that liquidity mining is an effective and cost-efficient way to engage a large group of passionate individual traders in a short time to provide token liquidity. Within the first month of the campaign period, 140+ distinct individuals have participated and earned rewards. They accounted for as much as 11% of total XEM trading volume on Binance, and as much as 50% for the XEMETH trading pairs. Encouraged by the growth of participation and liquidity metrics, together with NEM, we launched NEM(XEM) liquidity mining campaign on KuCoin in March 2021. As of March 15, 2021, 484 unique miners, 30% of the entire miner community, have participated in NEM liquidity mining campaigns on either Binance or KuCoin. The open order volumes peaked at US68K, US64K, and US50K for the XEM/BTC, XEM/USDT and XEM/ETH pairs, respectively. The total filled order volume reached US244mm and US$4mm for Binance and KuCoin (only launched for 1.5 weeks), respectively. The campaign performance has motivated both teams to bring NEM liquidity mining campaigns to the next level.

Today, we are very excited to work with NEM again to launch its Symbol (XYM) liquidity mining campaign on KuCoin. Having made a debut on March 15, 2021, Symbol(XYM) was recently listed on KuCoin. This is not our first time supporting token listings with liquidity mining. We’ve previously worked with Kava’s HARD protocol to support its HARD token listing on Binance with a US$38.5mm filled order volume achieved through a short 2-month liquidity mining campaign.

We have high expectations for this upcoming Symbol (XYM) campaign as it allows us to demonstrate how Hummingbot Miner can efficiently address price discovery for new token issuances, where decentralized market making offers a particular edge. The more traders actively participating in the market making activities, the more efficiently this critical price discovery process can occur.

On the other hand, the notion of empowering the community to give back to the ecosystem through decentralized market making elevates the brand value of NEM. The liquidity mining campaigns provide a way for NEM to access a broader trader community, enabling the community to get to know the project and contribute to its ecosystem by leveraging Hummingbot’s open-source trading bot. By lowering the entry barrier for algorithmic market making, Hummingbot, together with its partners, has successfully converted thousands of crypto enthusiasts into quant/algo traders through various liquidity mining campaigns. We believe that this campaign will be no exception in its ability to gain traction among a large, diverse group of participants.
