Ever since the birth of the Hummingbot ecosystem, we've strived to ensure a decentralized approach to governance and maintenance of the Hummingbot codebase. Let's take a brief journey through some key milestones:
- Oct 2021: Launch of the Hummingbot Foundation
- Jan 2022: Introduction of the HBOT Token
- Dec 2022: Introduction of Polls for CEX and DEX Connector Voting
- Sep 2023: Addition of Chain Connector Voting and Bounty Budgets
HBOT holders are now empowered to dictate how the Foundation distributes its maintenance resources and bounty budgets across the 50+ CEX, DEX, and chain connectors in the codebase. This post updates HBOT holders on how the governance system works.
