With the revamp of the Secret Agent program happening right now, it’s becoming apparent that having our own tip bot, one that works on Discord and can have custom features added to it, is going to be essential to rewarding agents.
With the release of the new Secret Agent landing page, we had ~900 new agents sign up in the past couple of weeks. If we’re going to be sending out SCRT payments to that many people, we can’t keep doing it one person at a time the way we’ve been doing with the current Twitter tip bot. We need the ability to send SCRT to a list of multiple users in one command.
We also don’t want to have to rely on an external party to maintain our tip bot, because as we’ve just seen over the past couple of weeks, that could mean long periods of downtime. The dev group SG-1 owns our current Twitter/Telegram tip bot, and they also have many other customers and priorities that require their attention.
In addition to being essential to the agent program, a tip bot would likely bring a ton of new members and community participation to the Discord. If you’ve seen tip bots in action on other cryptocurrency Discord servers, you know what I mean. Having a “rain” function that allows you to send out micro tips to hundreds of people at once, or a “thunder” function to randomly tip one person, keeps people entertained and engaged pretty much 24/7. It could even allow people to send SCRT to each other on other Discord servers outside of ours, spreading awareness.
Some measurable KPIs for this project are:
Rate at which we can reward an agent with SCRT (current rate is about 30 seconds per agent)
Discord “Server Insights” statistics - expecting an increase in new members, weekly visitors, and weekly messages sent
The goal is for this to be complete within 6 weeks of funding.
/register, /balance, /deposit, /withdraw, /help
/tip - Will ask sender to confirm gas fees if tipping multiple users
/rain - Tip server, channel, or role. Optionally limit based on status (online, dnd, idle, etc). Will ask sender to confirm gas fees before executing.
/lightning - Tip random user, optionally only within desired channel/role/status * /history - See sent and received tips
/donate - Donate to the faucet
Each user would have their own wallet and all tips would be on-chain
sSCRT withdraw support
Designed to easily add support for other platforms in the future
During the first 6 months, a fee system will be determined to help maintain the bot after the initial 6 months of hosting
Will be open-source, and it would be nice for the repo to be on Secret Foundation’s Github so that it’s easy to find and contribute to
Possible future features:
This budget is based on the 30 day average price of SCRT for September, which is $1.98.
Xiphiar - 5000 SCRT
Schultzie - 5000 SCRT
Hosting and maintenance costs for 6 months - 300 SCRT
Total: 10,300 SCRT
