How to create Human-gated discord channels with BotBasher?

Spam - it's like that persistent fly at a picnic, always buzzing around, causing unnecessary distractions. If you've been on Discord or Telegram, you've probably had your fair share of encounters with spam. It could be a simple, repeated message, or a stream of unrequested content flooding your channels, disrupting the flow of genuine conversations, turning community polls into a fiasco, and spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD).

Just like you, we understand that this can be an annoyance, and sometimes even a significant hindrance to the smooth running of your Discord community. This is why Humanode and many discord communities like us (Sei, Bitmart Fan Community, and more) use BotBasher to create human-gated or in other words Sybil-resistant channels inside their servers.

Wondering what Human-gated channels are? These channels are like an elite security force for your server, ensuring only verified, unique human users can participate in the dialogue. This way you can conduct sybil-resistant community polls, whitelisting, airdrops, and much more while keeping the spammers and Sybil-farmers away.

Before we dive into the how-to of creating these human-gated sybil-resistant channels, let’s first clear up what we mean by Spam and how it could disrupt your discord community experience.

You see, spam can be a bit of a chameleon, changing its appearance depending on who you ask. So, we define spam as the automatic or centrally operationalized creation or usage of accounts en masse to present users with undesired or malicious content and experiences.

In simple terms, it is when a single entity or a group unleashes a flurry of accounts (mostly automated bots) to gain a malicious advantage in community polls, getting more spots on whitelists and airdrops while depriving real community members of their right to be on the list, promoting false agenda to create FUD and much more. And these are precisely the party crashers that Sybil-resistant channels can keep away.

So to kick spam to the curb and transform your Discord server into a spam-free heaven, BotBasher helps you to create Human-gated Sybil-resistant channels where you can conduct community activities knowing that only real unique humans will participate.

Now, let’s talk about creating Human-gated Sybil-resistant channels.

  • To begin with, you need to install BotBasher on your Discord server. Visit the official BotBasher website, deploy BotBasher, select your server, and authorize.
  • Navigate to your server and create a role that you want to assign to users who verify that they are unique real human beings. Follow this step-by-step guide to set up BotBasher and create roles.
  • Once you successfully set up BotBasher, create your Human-gated channel.
    • Create a channel from the server drop-down menu.
    • Name your channel and set it to private before clicking next.
    • Select the role that is assigned to the verified humans on the next screen and create the channel.

Your Human-gated channel is now ready. You can now conduct 1p1v voting, Sybil-resistant whitelisting, Sybil-resistant airdrops, community signaling activities, or just let the real human users hang out and indulge in meaningful conversations without any fear of disruption by bots and multi-account holders.

You can create a group of Sybil-resistant channels assigning each to a particular activity.

Over the years, we've witnessed the rise of a new breed of opportunists - Sybil hunters. These individuals hop from project to project, draining resources and crowding out genuine users before deserting the project, only to restart the cycle with their next target. This pattern has strangled the healthy development of the Web3 industry. But change is on the horizon. It's high time we shift our focus towards nurturing authentic, human-centric communities, rather than falling for the momentary glimmer created by bots.
