New Strategy: Funding Rate Arbitrage

The new Funding Rate Arbitrage sample script works by exploiting differences in funding rates across different cryptocurrency exchanges to make a profit.

It evaluates the current funding rates across all configured connectors for the specified tokens. The script calculates the profitability of entering trades based on the difference in these rates and compares it against a profitability threshold set in the configuration.

Updated Docker Installation Process

We have simplified and updated the Docker installation instructions so that users can install from the base Hummingbot Github repo. This change aims to enhance user experience by providing a more organized and straightforward approach to using Hummingbot's powerful features.

The page includes advanced configuration examples as well that were previously hosted in the deploy-examples repo, which now features a single, comprehensive deployment example designed to launch multiple bots efficiently.
