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

2021-aug-lm-mr-img01 1

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:

2021-aug-lm-mr-img01 2

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:

2021-aug-lm-mr-img01 3

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 miner@hummingbot.io or you can join the team in lively discussions on our discord server.

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.

2021-aug-lm-mr-img14

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%.

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
2021-aug-lm-mr-img31

Binance - Filled order volume per USD 1,250 weekly reward
2021-aug-lm-mr-img32

KuCoin Rewards vs. Filled Order Volumes

KuCoin - 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.
