The BOTS app reviews: Marco
No stranger to trading
When we asked Marco if he was willing to participate in an interview on our website, his response was immediate enthusiasm: “Great, I think have a few things here and there that I can tell you,” he said. Marco is 46 years old and comes from the Dutch town of Papendrecht. He is married, and apart from his work as an operator, he enjoys spending time on his two hobbies: gaming and motorsports. “And I don’t mean Formula 1,” said Marco, “I actually find that quite boring.”
Marco is also no stranger to trading. He invests in dividend shares through DEGIRO. “And that piggy bank is filling up very quickly, to be honest.” Marco also invested in crowdfunding for a time, but he stopped doing so due to the fluctuating returns. “And then I entered the world of crypto,” he laughed, “It seemed to me that you could make money faster with crypto, than with dividend shares.”
Buying coins in itself was a great success. “Yeah, well, but then… Then you really get a mountain of information that can scare you off. It really was just too much information for me.” The difference between the so-called experts was so vast, that Marco was no longer able to make heads or tails of it.
“And that was the moment I saw a BOTS advertisement on Facebook. I think it’s fair to say that I was quite sceptical at first.” Marco decided to do some research, and his scepticism soon gave way to enthusiasm. “So I downloaded the app and started my first bot. That’s how fast it can go.”
Marco & BOTS
Marco’s very first bot was The Power of Pi: still one of his favourite bots. In the meantime, he has started nineteen different bots. “I didn’t start off with huge sums of money at first, because I was mainly waiting for the chance to make a deposit on a bot. And now that’s possible. That was a feature I was really looking forward to having.” When trading, Marco carefully considers every choice he makes. In his opinion, the major advantage is that all the information he previously encountered is now organized by the app. “It’s wonderful,” he said, “that means I don’t have to sort all that out for myself any longer.”
In Marco’s experience, the BOTS app is very user-friendly. Although, he believes that the design still has some room for improvement: “I get a real ’80s vibe from this design. It doesn’t appeal to me very much. But, of course, you can’t argue about taste.” And although Marco thinks the app itself is super straightforward and easy to use, he still has a few great tips for us: “If you add an ‘i’ icon with more information at certain points, people won’t have to go to the FAQ on the website. The more you can do in the app itself, the better.” Marco stays silent for a moment. “And it probably also helps to avoid the same questions being asked on the Discord channels all the time.”
Marco can also be found on Discord a lot. For him, it’s a nice way to connect as a community. “I think the bot builders being there is a huge plus. I have learned so much from this. Amazing.” One way or the other, Marco is thoroughly satisfied with the BOTS community. Since everyone is part of the Discord channel (BOTS, the bot builders and the users), things get solved quickly. He also enjoys the enormous level of helpfulness within the community at Discord. “Ultimately, we all want to head in the same direction, of course, but it is really nice to see how that happens together. Very special.”
Nevertheless, Marco still had a few points of improvement for us. For example, he suggested creating a separate Discord channel with all the FAQ. “At this moment, as users, we are trying to help each other, but we don’t know everything, either. We could in such a situation refer to a channel like that.”
Another tip Marco gave us was a weekly update. “Sometimes we are truly sitting around waiting and checking to see if the update is there. Imagine if you were to do an update every Friday, even if only with minor bug fixes. As a user, that would make me feel I can trust BOTS as they’re working hard to improve the app.”
The future of BOTS
Marco is cautiously positive when we ask him about his expectations for the future. “Look, the concept is truly genius. The way you provide service completely exceeds the level of other companies, and when I see the plans for the app and the possibilities, I can’t help but feel positive.”
So why the caution? “Well, sometimes I wonder if it isn’t growing too fast. There are still quite a few minor issues that need to be resolved. And then I get a little nervous when I see that there is such a rigid and fast schedule to expand to other countries. Maybe it should be made completely stable first.”
Finally, we ask Marco about the long-term future of BOTS. With a little chuckle, he says: “it would be insane if there were ever to be a superbot that could switch between coins and shares. Anything to get the best return. Is that really too insane? Maybe Roy can build it (Roy Lenders of Boosting Alpha). I think that would be a really great idea.”
