Good news, everyone! This year, Pavel Durov will be giving away one million dollars to bot developers in the form of grants starting at $25,000 each. All you need to do to be considered is create an impressive bot using ourBot API. What do we want in return? Nothing . That’s right, just support your creation and make your users happy.
Here’s a list of things that a bot needs to make us smile:
- It must be fast, just like the rest of Telegram’s interfaces.
- It must be useful for at least a few people out there.
- We like it when bots also work ininline mode.
- Oh, and did we mention it must be fast ?
Some areas you may want to focus on: integrations, tools for bot builders, AI stuff, and natural language processing, although your bot may do something altogether different. Surprise us!
We don’t mind if you port your bot from a different platform – just make sure it really feels at home in Telegram. We have many niftyinterface options that aren’t available elsewhere and make using Telegram bots a breeze.
How to submit
If you think you’ve made a bot that fits the description above, go ahead and drop us a line at BotSupport . Don‘t forget to include your bot’s username and the tag #BotPrize – this way we’ll be able to find your bot.
Here‘s a poster in case you’d like to spread the word:
