In the month of September, we had a slight decrease of liquidity and active bots versus last month due to the fact that the majority of the AscendEX sponsored campaign ended. However, both numbers started recovering by the end of month, as multiple campaigns started on both KuCoin and AscendEX exchanges.

New features and enhancements
New market detail page
Market detail page redesign, featuring a price/spread and volume historical chart (1H, 24H and 7D views). By clicking on each data point the user is able to see the information for that specific snapshot. This provides an easier way of understanding market and miner behavior through time. We will be also adding an order book depth chart to the page in the next few days.
Since this is still a beta version, please do not hesitate to provide any feedback and/or report bugs. You can do this directly on the Miner app, using either the feedback button or the new live support chat (best for extensive feedback or when file uploads are needed).
Chinese version of the Miner App
In alignment with our expanding base of Chinese miners, we released a Chinese version of the Miner App. You can change the language by clicking the language button on the upper right corner near the profile name.
Upcoming new features
We are on the final redesign of the wallet setting page. In addition to being able to assign different wallets to each individual payout tokens, we have now included the ability of setting individual wallets at an exchange level. That way, someone participating in campaigns that run on different exchanges, but that share a common payout token (eg. USDT), could receive rewards on different wallets. This allows our users to easily re-invest this capital into their mining strategies.
We welcome any feedback and suggestions at email@example.com or you can join the team in lively discussions on our discord server.

We saw a slight decline in the number of active bots this month due to majority of the AscendEX sponsored campaigns ended but was able to recover at the end of the month reaching 1,124 active bots:
Liquidity (open order volume)
Same as the number of active bots, the open order volumes declined as the majority of the AscendEX sponsored campaigns ended.
The average outstanding open order volume per campaign is around $18.6k at the end of this month.
Filled order volumes on Binance
Traded volume by miners on Binance continued its trajectory, reaching more than $2bn equivalent in September, a monthly rise of about 5%.
XEM and MFT still continue to lead the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $404.4m and $396.9m respectively.
Filled order volumes on KuCoin
The contribution of Humminbot miner's community to KuCoin's liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV reaching $200.2m in the month of September, a monthly increase of more than 18%.
FRONT and XYM are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $29.4m and $30.6m respectively.
Filled order volumes on AscendEX
The contribution of Humminbot miner's community to AscendEX's liquidity continues to grow, with cumulative FOV reaching $198.3m in the month of September, a monthly increase of more than 46%!
SOL, OMI, and DOGE are leading the board, with cumulative miner-traded volumes of $22.2m, $19.2m, and $19.2m respectively.
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.
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 September 30, have been awarded a total of $634k 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.
