Who uses Hummingbot?¶
For market making firms who serve multiple clients across many exchanges, the open source Hummingbot platform provides an ideal starting point. Many of today's top crypto market making firms started their businesses by building on top of Hummingbot.¶
As the company that open-sourced Hummingbot, we're incredibly proud of how the community has embraced and evolved it. Today, we run custom versions of Hummingbot for our institutional clients and consistently contribute back to the open-source initiative, ensuring its growth and relevance.

We started with Hummingbot as the foundation for our market-making business. Their WebSocket connector architecture is the most accessible in the market. It allowed us to go-to-market quickly and start making profits. Nowadays, we still use it from time to time and enjoy their great documentation.
Hummingbot has served as a reliable base for us to build custom tools and strategies. It has many quality connectors and all components are well thought out, allowing us to flexibly modify the open source code. This enables us to run a reliable market making as a service operation on both DEX and CEX.
Algo Traders & Boutique Firms¶
Both individual and professional algorithmic traders use Hummingbot. Use cases include capturing cross-chain + cross-exchange arbitrage opportunities with the AMM Arbitrage strategy and earning liquidity mining rewards on Hummingbot Miner.¶
Hummingbot allowed me to launch a successful suite of trading strategies managing over $2 billion in trade volume. From the outset, the design of Hummingbot made it easy to access data and execute orders reliably and with low latency, allowing me to place my attention on the strategy and have the heavy lifting done on the backend. I can't recommend Hummingbot enough for any algo trader seeking a 0 to 1 platform.
Since 2021, I've been a dedicated user of Hummingbot, primarily utilizing the pure market making strategy. Based on my profitable strategies, I started an algo-trading startup in Saudi Arabia with a colleague from Tower Research. Our combined expertise is now channeled towards crafting custom strategies, and we're proudly doing so on top of the robust foundation of the Hummingbot open-source software.
Hummingbot revolutionized my crypto trading. Using advanced strategies, I developed my own successful trading style and consistently ranked at the top of Hummingbot Miner's leaderboard for months. Beyond profits, I've learned so much about finance and crypto trading – a world that seemed overwhelming at first. Huge kudos to Hummingbot for making trading profitable and giving me this learning journey!”
