The @fovbot project (fovbot.org) is a platform for professional management of groups (chats) in Telegram. The basis of the platform is the @fovbot bot, which has advanced platform functionality. In addition, the @fovbot platform includes more than 6,800 clone bots of the main bot, which, from the user point of view, have the same functionality as the main bot, i.e. used to manage groups and have monetized ad inventory. The @fovbot project started in 2017 and is currently one of the most popular tools for automating community management in Telegram.
Below is a short summary of the main functionality of the @fovbot platform:
- Greetings — when a new user enters the chat, @fovbot automatically displays a prepared welcome message.
- Commands — the chat administrator can create special commands, aimed to deliver preset information for the chat participants (users).
- Publishing — instant posting to chat or preparation of delayed posting.
- Reputation — enabled by default and determines which participant has been thanked and how many times he/she received appreciation in the chat.
- Branding — cloning @fovbot in a chat with a customized avatar and set nickname set by the chat administrator.
- Chat timezone configuration.
- Option to select the interface language of @fovbot.
- Configuring withdrawal parameters and cryptocurrency rates used in the chat.
- Removing messages with links — both external and of the @username type, if it is a link to a channel, chat or bot.
- Removing reposts from channels, forwarding messages from bots and from any other accounts.
- Clearing the chat from system messages (about user login/deletion, etc.), removing operational messages that match the specified conditions.
- Display cryptocurrency rates: /btc, / ton, /eth or /rates.

About the collaboration between Free TON and @fovbot
We see the following main points of mutually beneficial cooperation.
For Free TON:
- promotion of the project through the advertising capabilities of the @fovbot platform;
- significant expansion of the project’s user base;
- increasing the utility of the cryptocurrency and the project generally by using Free TON Crystals to pay for any @fovbot services.
Initial token request:
- Development and integration of the Free TON related functionality: 220,000 Free TON Crystals
- Distribution of tokens to users, including compensation for discounts on platform services: 180,000 Free TON Crystals
For achieving goals:
- 3,000 Free TON Crystals for every 100 payments made with Free TON Crystals, capped at 3,000,000 Free TON Crystals
Total (initial request): 400,000 Free TON Crystals
For achieving goals: 3,000,000 (if target is reached)
The payment is considered if:
The user clicks START on the @fovTONbot bot, clicks on the Wallet button and the Deposit button, receives a unique disposable / reusable wallet number and replenishes the TON Crystals of the coin. No deposit fees are charged.
The user received coins from another user inside the @fovTONbot bot by Vouchers or commands /rain, /tip off-chain in Telegram. Such transfers will be recorded in a separate metric, and each transfer will be linked to the user ID that made the transfer. Transfer fees are not charged.
The user withdraws TON Crystals coins to third-party services such as Surf, Broxus, @Chatex @PokerTON etc. Withdrawal fees are charged and debited from the balance on the wallet.
Payment is also considered a payment for any fovbot service in TON Crystals in coins. Payment commission is not charged.
Distribution of tokens to users
The distribution of tokens among users will be carried out:
- By reputation. When users reach reputation levels, they will be credited with a specified amount of Free TON Crystals. Reputation “cheating” will be suppressed automatically using @fovbot mechanisms.
- As a part of the referral system for new users of Free TON wallets. In this case, @fovbot’s verification / protection mechanisms will operate from inviting “fake” users.
- For reaching a level in the referral system (for invited admins / advertisers).
- For adding admins more than a specified number (for example, 3,5,10, 100) chat @fovbot. With control from the addition of the fake chats.
- Random delivery of Free TON Crystals to active chat participants with a reputation from “+1”.
- For a significant contribution to the formation of the Free TON community. This item is poorly formalized, as it can be different actions marked by the community.
User involvement in the microeconomics of the Free TON using @fovbot
One of the main aim that our team sets for itself is to involve users in the regular use of Free TON Crystal to pay for various actions. This will create a demand for Free TON Crystal and increase the value of the token in the eyes of existing and new users to increase the utilitarianism of the economy.
It is planned to achieve this goal by:
- Providing users with a discount when paying for various purchases in Free TON Crystal. Since we plan to implement a number of new (paid) features in @fovbot (and its clones/copies), it is possible to provide automatic discounts when paying in Free TON Crystal.
- Creating mechanisms by which all participants in the process (user, chat admin, @fovbot, Free TON, third parties) will be interested in making payments using Free TON Crystal.
Development and integration of the Free TON related functionality
Create a branded bot @fovTONbot and transfer at least 50,000 chats with at least 50,000,000 users to it during 2021.
Advertising the Free TON project by using short (no more than 120 characters) text messages about Free TON when performing @fovTONbot and @fovbot system functions (greeting new users, deleting spam, other system messages): at least 50,000 impressions per day (1.5 million per month) throughout 2021.
Conducting bounty programs among users with the accrual of Free TON Crystals to their wallets and providing settlements using Free TON Crystals. At the same time, it is planned to involve an audience of at least 1,000,000 unique users.
Introduction of new functionality that allows administrators to monetize their chats:
a. Free TON Crystals wallet. Owners of Free TON Crystals wallets will have the opportunity to perform several basic operations: deposit / withdraw Free TON Crystals, forward / send Free TON Crystals, create a voucher in Free TON Crystals, make payments for platform services in Free TON Crystals. Transfers between wallets can be made by UserName, ID, according to the user’s Message from any public chat, as well as by “issuing a voucher”. Receipts can be:
i. Private. With the help of a “private” voucher, you can transfer coins anonymously (the recipient will not have information from whom he received the transfer).
ii. Deferred. Such a voucher can not be activated (get Free TON Crystals on it) before the specified time.
iii. “Interval”. The ability to activate a receipt only at specified time intervals.
iv. Disposable/reusable. One-time voucher can only be activated once by one user. Reusable receipts can be activated many times, but only by different (unique) users.
v. Reputational. Activation of the voucher is possible only by users who have reached a certain level of “reputation”.
vi. Linked to the chat. Activation is available only by chat participants.
vii. Personal.A receipt can only be activated by a specific user.
viii. With a random amount. A given number of vouchers with different (random) denominations, with a given total amount, is issued. The user can activate the voucher only once, receiving a random amount of Free TON Crystals.
ix. Combined. A combination of the above properties of receipts.
b. Control of the referral system. Using the referral system, users of @fovbot or @fovTONbot who have invited chat admins or advertisers via the referral link are rewarded. The reward of these users will be carried out with the help of a bot, the reward is paid in Free TON Crystals.
c. The possibility of collective fundraising crowdfunding) for the needs and ideas of the community. The chat admin creates an ad in the chat that describes the fundraising goals and the total amount to be raised. Chat users using @fovbot to pay for their participation in Free TON Crystals. The paid funds are transferred to the “Treasury” (General wallet) of the chat.
d. Create shared chat wallets (“Treasury”). Access to spending funds from the General chat wallet (Treasury) is carried out using @fovbot with confirmation/consent from all users designated as «treasurers»: this can be admins, moderators, and ordinary chat users. In addition to funds from crowdfunding, all funds from donations also fall into the «Treasury».
e. Donation in chat (for subscription and other purposes). The chat admin creates a link with which the user (anyone) can pay for a subscription to @fovTONbot (or other purposes) in Free TON Crystals from their crypto wallet.
f. Transfers in Free TON Crystals between chat users. Transfers to Free TON Crystals between chat users using commands for @fovbot. Transfers can be made by UserName, ID, according to the user’s Message from any public chat, as well as by “issuing a private voucher”. With the help of a «private voucher», you can transfer tokens anonymously (the recipient will not understand from whom he received the coins).
Payment for this and any other functionality of @fovbot will be possible in Free TON Crystals, which will create significant volumes of use of Free TON Crystals, which means it will create the preconditions for widespread distribution and recognition of the coin. Together with conducting bounty campaigns, this will help chat administrators to accomplish their tasks more easily.
The figures below show prototypes of interfaces for new functionality and advertising inventory related to the Free TON project.
We can consider a full transition to payments only in Free TON Crystals as part of the partial or full functionality of @fovbot.
