Release Notes - Version 1.16.0

Released on May 29, 2023

We are very excited to ship the May 2023 release of Hummingbot (v1.16.0) today!

This release adds the first iteration of Hummingbot Dashboard, a powerful new way to visualize and analyze your strategies. It also greatly simplifies the Docker installation process, added market orders support to top exchange connectors, and introduces connectors to the Algorand blockchain, Phemex, and more!

New trades DB columns

This release adds new columns to the trades database stored for each strategy/script to support the new Hummingbot Dashboard. As a result, we recommend that if you are updating from an older version of Hummingbot and want to run an strategy created using that older version, you should back up and delete the associated .sqlite file related to that strategy located in the /data folder. Failure to do so may result in errors upon re-starting the strategy.


Hummingbot Gateway

Update Gateway

Gateway users will also need to update Gateway to v1.16 after updating the Hummingbot client and then run the gateway-setup script to regenerate your configs then re-run the gateway connect ... command again from within Hummingbot. Otherwise, you'll get an error message about "Unhandled error in background task: 'chain_type'" when running Gateway.

Multi-arch Docker

With this release, Hummingbot now offers a multi-arch Docker image that supports both x86 and arm64 architectures. Users no longer need to download a separate Docker image for ARM builds.

Each month, we livestream two community calls on our Discord server:

  • Community Call: monthly release highlights, governance discussions, and community demos
  • How-To Call: in-depth demos and live coding of key Hummingbot features

Check out the Hummingbot Events Calendar for links to these monthly calls and other upcoming events.

Hummingbot Dashboard

Formerly called Streamlit-Apps, the new Hummingbot Dashboard lets you visualize and analyze a strategy, even as it's running in real-time.

This is an experimental new module that we are still prototyping, and we welcome the community to test out and provide feedback. We plan to make significant improvements to this dashboard in the next few releases.

Installation Improvements

We have streamlined the installation process so that there is a single environment.yml file in the setup folder. In addition, the Hummingbot Docker image can now be built using a simple command for multiple architectures, making it more accessible across a range of systems, including x86 and ARM architectures. These modifications are expected to enhance the overall user experience by simplifying the setup process and making Hummingbot more adaptable across a wide range of systems.

New Script Examples

This release added the following new Script examples and improvements to existing ones:

  • 1overN_portfolio: This strategy aims to create a 1/N cryptocurrency portfolio, providing perfect diversification without parametrization and giving a reasonable baseline performance. Thanks to Botcamp member Roland Kofler for this contribution! 🙏

  • spot_perp_arb: This script improves upon and addresses problems with the current spot perp arbitrage strategy. It is designed to simultaneously initiate a long position in the spot market and a short position in the perpetual market when the opening signal is triggered. These positions are then closed upon receiving the closing signal. The profit is generated from the corrective motion between the spot price and the perpetual price. Thanks to Botcamp member riven314 for this contribution! 🙏

  • This script was improved by incorporating the capacity to download data across various intervals, thereby allowing simultaneous access to multiple timeframes. Pull Request: #6289

New Chain/DEX Connectors: Algorand/Tinyman

Algorand a fully decentralized, secure, and scalable blockchain which provides a common platform for building products and services for a borderless economy. Tinyman is a decentralized trading protocol which utilizes the fast and secure framework of the Algorand blockchain.

See Algorand for the chain docs and the Tinyman exchange connector docs.
