With the approval of HIP-15, 2 Million HBOT tokens have been allocated to be airdropped to Community Developers, with 10k HBOT for each developer.

The main goal of the proposal is to allow developers to have the minimum amount of HBOT tokens needed to create HIPs (Hummingbot Improvement Proposals)

Airdrop Eligibility:

  • Gihub account
  • Discord account
  • At least one Pull Request targeting the Hummingbot Client Repository
  • A publid Ethereum Address

Hey @PHBR, is this still available for new developer? One of our team working on the connector for Defira on Harmony chain has published a PR and need HBOT to create a PRP

Based on feedback from Tech Review DAO, this airdrop has created an incentive for developers to submit trivial pull requests in an attempt to claim this 10,000 HBOT airdrop.

Since developers only need 1 HBOT to submit a Pull Request Proposal, and inflating the HBOT supply unnecessarily only serves to dampen the market for HBOT tokens, I believe that reducing this airdrop from 10,000 HBOT to 100 HBOT would allow developers to continue interacting with the codebase.

While the original purpose of this airdrop was to encourage developers to submit Hummingbot Improvement Proposals (HIPs), the purpose of HIPs may change in Epoch 2 if forthcoming changes to the governance system are proposed and implemented.

It doesn’t cost any gas - the Foundation uses Snapshot for voting.
