New features and enhancements
New Eagle Club qualification
Since the launch of our Eagle Club, the invite-only VIP program for Hummingbot’s power miners, we have welcomed 130 members to the club! Thanks to every member who has joined and mastered liquidity mining. The Eagle Club has been not only a VIP program that team Hummingbot will devote energy and time to but also a close-knit community for experienced crypto traders to share their thoughts and obtain personalized support. For the qualifications, any miner who has earned 0.3% of the total four-week rewards distributed on Hummingbot Miner. Members who are qualified for the Club will be receiving an invitation email sent every four campaign periods/weeks.
New support chat feature
Users can utilize this feature to get in touch with live support for miners who don’t have a discord account.
New My Markets filter
We have added a new feature on the Markets page, which allows our miners to easily see what pairs they are currently trading:
By switching the “My Markets” toggle, the user can focus on the markets he has bots running on. We have also highlighted those markets while on the general view, so that they are spotted at a glance.
Upcoming new features
As promised in previous articles, we have been working on a new design for the individual market page. We are very excited to announce that we are in the final round of QA and will be releasing this feature next week. Here is a preview of the new page from our development environment:
In addition to this, we are also quite advanced with the redesign of the wallet setting page. In addition to being able to assign different wallets to each individual payout tokens, we have now included the ability of setting individual wallets at an exchange level. That way, someone participating in campaigns that run on different exchanges, but that share a common payout token (eg. USDT), could receive rewards on different wallets. This allows our users to easily re-invest this capital into their mining strategies. Finally, in alignment with our expanding base of Chinese miners, we will be releasing a Chinese version of the Miner App in the next two weeks.
We welcome any feedback and suggestions at email@example.com or you can join the team in lively discussions on our discord server.
Through August 30, 2021.

We saw a surge in the number of active bots this month with the launch of new campaigns on AscendEX and KuCoin, hitting an all-time high of 1,239 active bots on August 5, 2021:
Liquidity (open order volume)
On August 9, outstanding liquidity reached a new all-time high of $1.6m. This was the result of several campaigns launched this month on AscendEX and KuCoin.
The average outstanding open order volume per campaign is around $29.3k at the end of this month, way lower than previous months. This is caused by a significant increase in the total number of active campaigns.
Filled order volumes on Binance
Traded volume by miners on Binance continued its trajectory, reaching almost $2bn equivalent in August, a monthly rise of about 4%.
XEM and MFT still continue to lead the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $398.7m and $392.9m respectively.
Filled order volumes on KuCoin
The contribution of Humminbot miner's community to KuCoin's liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV reaching $168.3m in the month of August, a monthly increase of almost 22%.
FRONT and XYM are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $24.5m and $26.1m respectively.
Our miners provided an impressive level of liquidity for some campaign tokens on KuCoin such as DIVI, reaching more than 90% of FOV on some days.
Filled order volumes on AscendEX
The contribution of Humminbot miner's community to AscendEX's liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV reaching $133m in the month of August, a monthly increase of almost 157%!
AscendEX's daily FOV reached an all-time high of $4.7m on August 6th.
BTC and DOGE are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $16.3m and $16m respectively.
In line with what we saw from two other exchanges, our miners provided an impressive level of liquidity for some campaign tokens on AscendEX such as CLOUT and PORT, reaching more than 80% of FOV on some days.
Filled order volume vs. reward pool
While liquidity mining does not compensate miners for filled order volume, the increased liquidity and order book depth created by miners does translate into increased trading efficiency and, consequently, additional trading volume. Trading volume is important for issuers since exchanges typically use traded volume as a benchmark to decide whether or not to maintain or remove token listings.
Binance Rewards vs. Filled Order Volumes
Binance - Filled order volume per USD 1,250 weekly reward
KuCoin Rewards vs. Filled Order Volumes
KuCoin - Filled order volume per USD 1250 weekly reward
AscendEX Rewards vs. Filled Order Volumes
AscendEX - Filled order volume per USD 1250 weekly reward
Note: Liquidity mining does not reward for filled order volume nor does it guarantee a certain amount of filled order volume. The above figures are based on historical data from currently running and historical liquidity mining campaigns.
Top ten miners
The top ten miners, as of August 30, have been awarded a total of $563.1k equivalent in payouts.
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.
