The BOTS app experiences: Tom

One of the most important factors for BOTS by RevenYOU to grow and pursue their goals is to have a strong community. A community of users, developers and colleagues. Today we give the floor to a user of the BOTS app: Tom. One of the many users who talk about their BOTS app experiences.

Tom

"At some point I thought to myself either I keep sending all the points to the BOTS support department, or I'm going to test with the beta versions." For Tom, it became the latter option. Not only is he now a user of the BOTS app, but he is also testing the latest versions for us before going "live". Today Tom talks about his BOTS app experiences.

Tom has been working in digital commerce for over 10 years and, he says, is always looking for ways to create more value. From his work as a digital strategist, he advises companies on a daily basis about e-commerce and how they can develop strongly both digitally and organisationally. "And with these eyes I also look at BOTS. As far as I'm concerned, a start-up with seven-mile boots. It's going fast with the growth of BOTS and that sometimes goes hand in hand with growing pains".

Tom & BOTS

Nevertheless, Tom's confidence in BOTS and the BOTS app is high. That's why Tom started investing via the app last summer. "I use part of the return I get with BOTS to invest. In this way I feed my modest equity portfolio (which has a focus on sustainability) with the returns from the for me relatively 'new crypto world'".

When asked whether Tom also has a favorite bot or bot builder, he has to laugh. "Did you know I came up with the name of a bot?" Roy Lenders (from Boosting Alpha) responded a few months ago to the request from BOTS app users to develop more risky bots. Just the name of those bots, that was tricky. Roy decided to ask the community for help, and Tom came up with the proposal for Casino Royale after studying the bot's test results. "Casino clearly indicates that the bot is high-risk and Royale is obviously a nod to Roy himself." It's clear that this is Tom's favourite bot, with good reason. "But apart from the name, I'm also satisfied with the operation of the bot of course" he laughs.

When asked what could be better about the app, Tom has a few suggestions. "If you start over with the BOTS app now, I'll miss a bit of guided instruction when I look through the eyes of a new user. People 'give' their money to a bot. What exactly does a bot do? What is the difference between manual and automated actions? What can I reasonably expect? These kinds of topics are not discussed within the app, while this is very relevant information if you are just starting with the BOTS app. That would make the BOTS app experience even better".

The bot descriptions could be even better according to Tom. "Not all bots are suitable for beginners." While talking, Tom suggests to make a short questionnaire for the new user at the start of the app. "With questions about the risk you are willing to take, how much experience you have, what your goal is. You can then make a targeted, blunt offer that suits the user. In that way you can prevent people from acting manually on the basis of emotion. Even within the BOTS app."

The future of BOTS

Tom believes in the future of the BOTS app, but remains critical. "I'm regularly on Discord, so I really get a lot of information, but most of the users aren't here. And they miss a lot of information. I think that's a missed opportunity, BOTS by RevenYOU would do well to involve the remaining 99.9% of users".

Yet Tom looks to the future with great confidence. "I said earlier that I recognise the growing pains, but I also see the reaction of the BOTS team to these pains, and that gives me a lot of confidence. I don't want to be at the mercy of foreign providers when it comes to automatic trading, so I might be a bit more forgiving about that".

Did Tom actually invest in BOTS by RevenYOU himself? "I'm not a certificate holder of RevenYOU," says Tom "but that's really a conscious decision I made myself. As a certificate holder, I would take other interests into account as well, I think my voice as a critical customer is most needed right now. So all in all, he's just positive about his own BOTS app experiences. Still, Tom doesn't rule out that he will one day become a certificate holder.

"Wouldn't it be a great idea for a client with a share of your bots' returns to invest in BOTS by RevenYOU, for example? As a kind of savings system with additional benefits? In this way, you also keep the users connected to you for longer".
