Sponsors & Backers
The Hummingbot Foundation, supported by its sponsors, partners and backers, is dedicated to fostering a robust, community-driven ecosystem for algorithmic crypto trading. By partnering with pioneering protocols and companies in the crypto space, the Foundation ensures the continuous development, enhancement, and dissemination of Hummingbot as a leading open-source trading platform.
Vega Protocol: Vega Protocol's partnership with Hummingbot Foundation underscores the symbiotic combination of a cutting-edge decentralized exchange protocol with a global market maker community. This collaboration is aimed at enabling both individual and professional market makers to successfully provide liquidity and execute strategies on Vega markets using Hummingbot. See Announcement.
Hyperliquid: Hyperliquid has partnered with Hummingbot Foundation to show the power of democratized, algorithmic access to markets. Hyperliquid is an order book perpetual futures DEX that aims to do everything the best CEXs do, but on-chain. Their unique Vaults allow users to run stake-able liquidity provision strategies. Vaults are highly transparent (all trades and orders are displayed in real-time) and should be a good fit for Hummingbot users who want to run various types of strategies, display their trading performance publicly, and attract stakers.
CoinAlpha: As the original creator of Hummingbot, CoinAlpha played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Hummingbot Foundation. CoinAlpha not only initiated the transition of Hummingbot to a community-driven model but also provided essential startup funding to jumpstart the Foundation's endeavor to build a Linux-like ecosystem. See Announcement.
The Hummingbot journey began with the visionary support of our initial investors at CoinAlpha. These early believers funded the foundational development of Hummingbot and laid the groundwork for the innovative software that countless traders rely on today. As holders of HBOT tokens, these investors continue to play a crucial role, actively participating in Hummingbot governance. We extend our deepest gratitude to these investors for their trust and commitment, which have been pivotal in shaping Hummingbot's success.
