How does Hummingbot Miner work?


Token issuers sponsor campaigns, offering weekly rewards for specific trading pairs on one or multiple exchanges.


Users sign-up to our platform (no KYC required) and connect their read-only exchange API keys, so trading activity can be monitored and rewards allocated.


Users run Humminbot Client or their algo-trading solution of choice, and provide liquidity to one or more of the sponsored token pairs.


Rewards are allocated on 1-minute snapshots and paid out on a weekly basis.


Tokens get additional liquidity from our community of individual market makers and users get rewarded in exchange. Everybody wins!

What factors influence the rewards allocation?
The amount of your open orders

Orders do not need to be filled. We look at open orders placed every minute compared with the rest of the miners.

The closer the spread, the higher the reward

Reward gets exponentially higher when the spread of your market orders are closer to the mid-price. The order has to be lower than the maximum spread listed by each campaign.

How long your open orders are maintained

Total rewards are distributed evenly per minute, which is then allocated to our miners according to how tight their spreads are and their order amount.
