Description of Proposal

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. Two previous proposals, each covering a 3-month period, have enabled us to gather and verify a list of over 1,690,000 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 toward 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. Milestones: Initiation of Round 3: July 1st, 2023 Monthly update with number of additional bot accounts detected: 1st of each month thereafter for 3 months Requested funding: We request the same amount of funding as we did for round 2. We have 4 detectives. Each detective puts in on average ~2 hours per day. 56 hours a month, at $30/h plus $20/month hosting = $6740 At current value: 565,200 TLM per month. (1 TLM = $0.0119 as on 22nd of June 2023 09:29 UTC) Request: 3 months. 1,695,600 TLM This amount is towards the funding for the month of August. Planet Magor is also contributing! Hoping more planets will contribute! The remaining August balance will be covered by
