The end of the year was full of significant achievements for Hummingbot: we launched the Hummingbot Foundation and released the HBOT Token (didn’t claim your tokens yet?). The Miner was no exception, achieving two important milestones during December: open order volume by base asset reached an all time high on AVAX, reaching $287k OOV in a single day and Binance breached the $1 million mark on cumulative rewards given to miners!
As 2022 begins, we are full of excitement for all the new features we will be launching during the next months. But above all, we are grateful for the amazing community of miners that has grown around the platform: over 2,700 users signed up during 2021, reaching a total of almost 4,000 since inception. Thank you all for trusting us!

New features and enhancements
The score aims to convey the risk faced by liquidity providers for a given token, and is based on publicly verifiable data points such as market capitalization rank and number of days since first publicly listed. Depending on the score calculated, each token is then assigned to a specific category (stable, core, growth, emerging), representing increasing levels of risk.
We hope this helps our miners choose those markets that better match their skill level and risk preferences. You can find more details here.
New Wallets and Payouts feature
We have completely redesigned the whole process to provide more flexibility to our users. This new design replaces the old wallet setting tab with two new ones: a wallet setup tab and a payouts assignment tab. While the former allows for the setup of wallets on any of the supported networks, the latter lets users specify what wallet should be used to payout rewards on a token by token basis:

Upcoming new features
During the next two weeks we will release several exciting features: a new user experience for the Eagle Club, improvements to the Rewards CSV and a new chart showing historic Open Order Volume.
We welcome any feedback and suggestions at email@example.com or you can join the team in lively discussions on our discord server.

Because new campaigns were started throughout the month of December, the total number of bots was able to rebound from its minor downward trend from the previous month:
Liquidity (open order volume)
In the month of December, open order volumes were able to recover and achieve an uptrend momentum.
The average outstanding open order volume per campaign is around $15.5k at the end of this month.
Filled order volumes on Binance
Miner volume on Binance continued to surge, reaching more than $2.2 billion, an increase of more than 2% month over month.
AVAX, RLC, and MFT still continue to lead the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $349.5m, $330.8m, and $405m respectively.
Filled order volumes on KuCoin
The Humminbot miner's community's contribution to KuCoin's liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV hitting $376.4m, a monthly growth of over 16%.
FRONT, FEAR, and XCAD are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $35.1m, $35.3m, and $39.5m respectively.
Filled order volumes on AscendEX
The contribution of Humminbot miner's community to AscendEX's liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV reaching $316.5m, a monthly increase of almost 9%
Filled order volumes on Gateio
The Humminbot miner community's contribution to Gateio liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV hitting $16.2m, a monthly gain of 150 percent over the previous month.
XCAD and AKT are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes near $4.3m for both pairs.
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 1,250 weekly reward
AscendEX Rewards vs. Filled Order Volumes
AscendEX - Filled order volume per USD 1,250 weekly reward
Gateio Rewards vs. Filled Order Volumes
Gateio - Filled order volume per USD 1,250 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 the end December, have been awarded a total of $970.7k 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.
