Currently many refugees from Ukraine are without financial support and even if they have money, they want to save it for most urgent matters. With Circles they could easily use a mechanism for “bookkeeping” if they trade with others or use Circles in bigger cities with Circles communities.
Almost all of these people use Telegram or know someone who does, probably even more than Whatsapp or other messengers.
So I was playing around with Telegram bots and thought about this: a bot that you can invite to a group, which displays the Circles usernames of the group participants if they either set it manually or used a derived username
(telegramFirstname + "_" + hash(telegramId)[0..8])
- /info - prints the either manually set or derived Circles username
- /set CIRCLES_NAME - sets the Circles username for this Telegram user (not verified!)
- /query CIRCLES_NAME - queries api.circles.garden for the username and displays avatar + safe address
- /transfer CIRCLES_NAME AMOUNT - watches User (Safe) address for
transfertransactions to CIRCLES_NAME for 10 blocks and notifies for successful transaction or timeout (10 blocks)
same output as with
