During the month of June we marked a major milestone: we launched liquidity mining campaigns (beta) on AscendEX, our third supported exchange for Hummingbot Miner! The first two campaigns were kicked-off on June 22, for BTC/USDT and ETH/USDT pairs, and eight additional pairs will be added on July 6th. The total reward pool of USDT 200,000 is the biggest ever!
In the first two weeks since the launch, more than 80 miners set up bots that traded over US$4 million and earned US$18,750 in rewards. This showcases the power of our community and how Hummingbot Miner offers a superior alternative to traditional market making. It also 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.
In the month of June, total filled order volume on Hummingbot Miner grew almost 6%, reaching a total cumulative value of more than $1.9bn!
Filled order volume reached $1.9bn, a monthly increase of 6%.
Total distinct miners surpassed 2,700! Another 200 new miners signed up and earned rewards in the month of June.

The top ranked miner has earned the USD equivalent of $138.7k in total rewards.

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 1250 weekly reward
AscendEX Rewards vs. Filled Order Volumes
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 June 30, have been awarded a total of $426.3k 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.
