Hummingbot BotCamp


Initiative Budget


Launch a bootcamp that teaches developers to create quantitative trading scripts and strategies using Hummingbot, similar to NEAR Foundation’s program.

See Hummingbot Bootcamp Plan for more information about the motivation and initial draft plan.

Assumptions for HBOT grant proposal:

  • 50 participants for each BotCamp module
  • 40% (20) finish the module final assignment
  • 5 best solutions: 50k HBOT * 5 = 250K HBOT
  • 15 extra solutions: 10k HBOT * 15 = 150K HBOT
  • 20 solution reviews by BotCamp review team: 10k * 20 = 200k HBOT
  • Total: 600K HBOT * 3 modules = 1.8M HBOT
  • Remaining 0.2M HBOT proposed is a buffer in case there are more developers
