We are super excited to announce the official launch of liquidity mining on AscendEX (previously known as BitMax) with the BIGGEST ever reward pool of USDT 200,000! 

We will be launching new liquidity mining campaigns (Beta) on AscendEX with a total reward pool of USDT 200,000 for 10 eligible pairs! The first two campaigns will be launched on June 22, 2021 for BTC/USDT and ETH/USDT pairs. Eight more pairs will be coming to Hummingbot Miner soon. Make sure to join every campaign to earn big rewards!

The launch of liquidity mining on AscendEX, our third supported exchange for Hummingbot Miner, marks one more step further to achieving our mission to scale liquidity mining to most major exchanges as we are planning to add on several more this year.

Beta period: note that this initial launch on AscendEX is a beta testing period, which will allow us to test out the infrastructure. Miners are still earning rewards as per usual campaigns. During this time, we will be collecting feedback from users and regularly updating miners and the community on system performance or any issues that may be encountered. 

Join liquidity mining on AscendEX

Hummingbot boasts successful experience launching and managing liquidity mining campaigns on leading cryptocurrency exchanges such as Binance and KuCoin. The 19 campaigns we’ve launched to date on Binance have brought token issuers $1.7-billion total filled order volume with ever-growing open order volume peaked at $1.1 million. The eight campaigns on KuCoin have created a $107-million filled order volume with a consistent open order volume of $100K on average. Highly motivated by these encouraging results, we are confident to bring liquidity mining to the next level by the AscendEX launch.

The liquidity mining launch bears strategic significance for both AscendEX and Hummingbot by unlocking endless exciting opportunities for both token issuers and crypto traders (i.e. liquidity miners). For issuers who list their tokens on AscendEX, Hummingbot Miner offers a cost-efficient, data-driven, and community-oriented alternative for liquidity provision. Benefits of a liquidity mining campaign include but are not limited to promoting token liquidity and price discovery, and increasing the project exposure and awareness. For traders, the additional exchange integration provides miners a new playground to learn new projects, compete with fellow miners, have fun, and earn more rewards as the total campaigns available increase.
