CEX Connectors

CEX connectors integrate into a centralized exchange's WebSocket API, enabling standardized order placement/cancellation and order book data fetching from the perspective of Hummingbot strategies. Each connector is customized for a particular exchange's idiosyncrasies to enable this level of standardization, so they may should ideally have a maintainer, whose role is to ensure consistent performance by fixing bugs, incorporating API updates, and other ongoing work.

Connectors may be added by community members via New Connector Proposals. Each quarter, the CEX Connector Poll sorts CEX connectors into Gold, Silver, and Bronze tiers, which determines whether they are maintained by the Foundation.

Here are the current CEX connectors in the codebase, as of Q3 2023:
