Liquidity Mining: July recap
Liquidity Mining: July recap
Blog»Liquidity Mining: July recap
During the month of July, we achieved several significant milestones: we surpassed the $2 billion mark in traded volume, the total number of active bots reached an all-time high of 1,103 bots, open order volume reached a new all-time high of nearly $1.2 million, and total cumulative rewards surpassed the $1 million mark.
These are impressive numbers that show the power of our mining solution as a liquidity provider to the crypto market, and as an additional revenue stream for our expanding community of miners. With current estimated yearly yields above 200%, Liquidity Mining allows them to earn higher yields than anywhere else in crypto.
Impressive numbers indeed, but just the tip of the iceberg compared to what we have planned for the second half of the year. Stay tuned!

New features and enhancements
Improved Rewards dashboard
We have introduced a new rewards dashboard style that combines the snapshot and the market filter, which improves usability on both desktop and mobile.
New Feedback Feature
Users can utilize this feature to submit comments, suggestions, and feedback on how we can improve our services. Bugs can also be reported using this channel.
Upcoming new features
We are currently adding the finishing touches to the new individual market pages, which in addition to the current snapshot table, will include order book depth and price/spread charts. This will facilitate the analysis of the market’s data, helping our miners make smarter decisions when adjusting their strategies. Though it took longer than expected, we think the final result will be worth the wait. We expect to roll it out during the next two weeks.
Finally, we are working on a new design of the wallet settings page, that will improve the payout experience by providing more flexibility to our users. Instead of setting up “catch-all” wallets for each blockchain, it will now be possible to have multiple wallets for the same chain and configure which one should be used for each individual payout token. This is an exciting new feature, long awaited by many users, and ever more important as we add new markets to the platform.
We welcome any feedback and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can join the team in lively discussions on our discord server.

With the launching of new campaigns on AscendEX and KuCoin this month, we noticed a spike in the number of active bots, reaching an all-time high of 1,103 active bots on July 19, 2021:
Liquidity (open order volume)
On July 31, outstanding liquidity reached a new all-time high of $1.2m. This was the outcome of various campaigns launched this month on AscendEX and KuCoin.
The average outstanding open order volume per campaign peaked at $47.1k at the end of this month.
Filled order volumes on Binance
Traded volume by miners on Binance continued its trajectory, reaching almost $1.9bn equivalent in July, a monthly increase of more than 4%.
XEM and MFT still continue to lead the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $392.4m and $386m respectively.
Hummingbot miners comprised impressive percentages of Binance filled order volume totals for the campaign tokens, with more than 60% of liquidity provided by our community for some assets, like PHB and PIVX.
Filled order volumes on KuCoin
The contribution of Humminbot miner's community to KuCoin's liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV reaching $138.1m in the month of July, a monthly increase of almost 16%.
FRONT and XYM are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $21m and $23.2m respectively.
In line with what we saw for Binance, 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 $51.8m in the month of July.
On July 26th, AscendEX’s daily FOV reached an all-time high of $4.1m.
BTC and ETH are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $9m and $10.3m 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, reaching more than 90% 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 2, have been awarded a total of $483.4k 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.
