We’ve had conversations with many of the traders on Hummingbot and we’ve learned that for those who have been successful after onboarding, most of them were able to do so because they messaged on the Discord community and some community members shared with them tips and advice on market making.

Therefore, don’t hesitate to post and ask questions on Discord! Some helpful channels are #trader-chat and #liquidity-mining
