During April 2021, Hummingbot miner platform continued its explosive growth, expanding both its user base and rewards pool. This demonstrates not only the increasing interest of the community, but also the success of the liquidity mining model as a cost effective alternative to traditional market making services for both issuers and exchanges.

Filled order volume continued to grow, increasing almost 30% last month and achieving a total cumulative value of $1.49bn! In the case of KuCoin, for example, Hummingbot miners accounted for over 15% of total monthly FOV for that exchange, while for some specific tokens, like CDT, liquidity mining bots accounted for over 50% of total traded volume.

Cumulative Filled Order Volume for all exchanges

  • Filled order volume reached $1.49bn, a monthly increase of 30%

  • Total distinct miners surpassed 2,200! Over 300 new miners signed up and earned rewards in the month of April

  • $645k equivalent cumulative rewards paid out since March 2020, with over $100k paid during April alone, making it the highest payout of any given month so far

  • Cumulative FOV on KuCoin doubled during the month of April, reaching $78m

  • The top ranked miner has earned the USD equivalent of $118k in total rewards

New campaigns and extensions

  • The Hacken (HAI) liquidity mining campaign was announced on April 27, and kicked off on May 4, 12:00 am UTC, with a total reward pool of 15,000 USDT (1,250 USDT/week).

New features and enhancements

Hummingbot Miner will continue to integrate with new exchanges, such as AscendEX (to be launched in the following weeks), as well as offering liquidity mining opportunities for new tokens, such as Hacken (HAI), alongside existing campaigns.

We are constantly looking to improve our users' experience. Currently, we are working on redesigning the miner app, with exciting new features such as order book depth, price and spread charts and a dark mode.

Inline with what we saw for Binance, our miners provided an impressive level of liquidity for some campaing tokens on KuCoin such as FRONT, reaching almost 50% of FOV on some days.
