Introducing the new Spot Perpetual Arbitrage strategy (Beta)

In v0.37, we introduce the new Spot Perpetual Arbitrage strategy! This strategy lets you arbitrage between a spot and futures exchange. The differences between the prices on the spot and futures markets before the settlement date give a good sense of the direction in which both markets would go. Prices on both futures and spots will converge as the settlement date or time approaches.

This strategy aims to open a position in one direction and execute an order in the opposite direction on the spot. Learn more about the Spot Perpetual Arbitrage.

Improvements to Liquidity Mining strategy

We added two new parameters max_spread and max_order_age to Liquidity Mining strategy to give users a more functionality when using the strategy. Users now have the option to turn off inventory_skew and disable target_base_pct.

Tables are added to display the campaign, base, and quote balance in more detail. Balance distribution has also been improved on the user's selected token.
