In March 2021, the Hummingbot platform continued its impressive growth, with the highest filled order volumes and rewards for miners to date. The number of distinct miners grew 19.4% last month, from 1,622 to 1,937, with 315 new miners participating on the platform and earning rewards.

This increase in miner activity reflects the growing knowledge and ability of the participating community of traders and developers, as well as the quickly growing momentum behind Hummingbot software and strategies. The increase in the reward pool also reflects growing adoption and confidence in token issuers in using Hummingbot Miner to support and promote liquidity for its tokens.

13-month Summary Statistics

Through March 31, 2021

  • Filled order volume surpassed $1.15bn

  • Total distinct miners surpassed 1,937! 315 new miners signed up and earned rewards in the month of March alone!

  • $516k equivalent cumulative rewards paid out, compared to $272k in January

  • The top ranked miner has earned the USD equivalent of $93k in total rewards

  • Liquidity mining rewards were paid out in a combination of USDC, USDT, ALGO, XEM, and others. As the Hummingbot Miner platform expands, we expect that more rewards will be paid out in native tokens.

What’s next

One of the main focuses and goals for the year is to expand Hummingbot Miner to many more exchanges. The next exchange we are working on integrating is BitMax.

We are constantly looking for UI/UX improvements for the miner app. Currently, we are working on a dark mode, and additional re-designs and improvements to the market view. We welcome any feedback and suggestions at or join our team in discussions on our discord server.

Thank you!

The growth of the total number of bots across a diverse spectrum of base assets shows the health of the Hummingbot ecosystem, thanks to its increasing and energetic base of dedicated users and developers.
