Technology

On the BOTS website you can read:
“With BOTS, we make automated investing accessible to everyone.”
To run the BOTS on the RevenYOU-BOTS-platform, you need a smartphone with either the Mac ( App Store) or Android (Google Play) operating system.

Usability versus Visibility

A different way to run the BOTS-App is to use Virtualization on a PC or Laptop with Windows or MAC. Hereafter you find three option to do so.

If you need a large screen, for instance due to visual problems or a handicap (like me), this is a way to do that easily.
The order of preference by our users is currently (mind the footnotes): 
1) NoxPlayer   
2) BlueStacks 
3) LDPlayer  

If the CPU inside of your PC has Hardware-Assisted Virtualization, then your PC will support Virtualization. In order to learn if your PC supports virtualization check the BlueStacks website.
For this mode of operation the BlueStacks 1Speed up BlueStacks

BlueStacks is unable to use hardware assisted virtualization for better performance. Hardware assisted virtualization will allow apps to run much faster by allocating more resources and reducing processing times. For the purpose of simulating the BOTS-App on smartphone this is not required.

software is for free. Because you are not going to use this solution as a gamer, most Personal Computers will just do the job without extra dedicated hardware, (e.g. using hyper-virtualization). A powerful graphics card (e.g. NVIDIA) will help.

After the installation, open the virtual environment of you choice. Here you find the PlayStore. Search for the BOTS by RevenYOU app and click to install it into the virtual smartphone. 
This means that you can even use an old cellular phone (also known as a cellphone or mobile phone). You do not require a smartphone as such.

Of the three solutions listed, NoxPlayer is the most advanced and integrated one. 

An other alternative is LDPlayer.

The RevenYOU development Bots team members can be found under the "More" option on the bottom Menu in the App.  Then select "About",  and go to "The Bots Team".

IT-Infrastructure platform

The BOTS Smart-phone App is only 1 component of the overall IT Infrastructure of the RevenYOU-BOTS-platform. But for end-users this is an important part, as this is the place to manage the bots and track portfolio performance. See also the IT-Infrastructure Related Services page for more details and a overal picture.

Apart from the supporting www.bots.io website and the discord forum, the BOTS App is the only building block required to use and manage your bots-portfolio. Most of the platform runs on hardware-servers connected to the Internet. That is where the bots reside, executing the software programs with the trade-algorithms.

More and more ro-bots use a programming-model based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine self-learning (ml) algorithms. This is also where the communication take place with banks and exchanges.

A crypto-exchange can be a market maker that typically takes the bid–ask spreads as a transaction commission for its service or, as a matching platform, simply charges fees. This communication is implemented trough so called API's. An application programming interface ('API') is a computing interface that defines interactions between multiple software intermediaries. What also runs on these servers is everything and anything to ensure security and protection of your assets. This includes facilities such as (high)availability, security and secured-communication, test environments and restore and backup.

PS1: All platform communications  is so called asynchronous communication, that can mostly execute very fast but sometimes can be very slow.  An important reason for that is the Internet. Simply said, if there is a hick-up, you and your bots, and the bank, and the exchanges, just have to wait. All the communication needs to be equipped for that.  All these connections must function. This is something to be aware of, for impatient users,  when using the real-time Bot interface App on your smartphone. 

PS2: In case of Internet-connection issues, restarting the BOTS App will in most cases cure the problem.
At the moment that you close that App, but not terminate, Android will automatically “kill” all open connections and background-processes of the App. When you restart the App, the App is confused and says it can't connect. Unfortunately this is a common thing in the Android mobile operating-system. 

The above is in addition to money transfers:  "deposit money, from a Bank, is available within 2 workdays in the App. When you stop a bot in the BOTS App, it also may take 2 workdays. And again into a Bot or to a Bank". It may take seconds, or days!
