Description of Proposal

Anti-bot team - Continued Action

Continuing the work on the public API endpoint with a list of known bot accounts, maintained by a team of detectives.

The monkey detective team takes bot-fighting seriously. Three previous proposals, combined covering a 8 month period, have enabled us to gather and verify a list of over 2,418,184 accounts as malicious actors violating the terms and conditions in Alien Worlds. Our detectives use a set of privately created tools and methods that have been continually developed and updated towards this end. The list of verified bot accounts is publicly available for everyone to use on the endpoint. This endpoint is currently being used by the AW bot team, EOSUSA butler service-based NFT distribution, the miners union, taco, and all events that use the EOSUSA data exports including Magor Dark side and Eyeke treasure hunts.

So far our efforts have borne great success and we wish to take what we've learned and continue this effort, further maintaining and expanding this list.

Monthly update with number of additional bot accounts detected: 1st of each month

Requested funding:
We have 4 detectives. Each detective puts in on average ~1 hour per day. 28 hours a month, at $30/h plus $20/month hosting = $3380
At current value: 338,000 TLM per month. (1 TLM = $0.01 as of 1st of September 2023)
This amount is towards the funding for the month of September 2023. Planet Magor is also contributing! We hope more planets will contribute!
