A bot is an automated program bearing instructions to execute a specific task. Discord bots are good examples of how the NFT community uses bots in real-life.
For instance, a Discord community can assign bots to welcome new members or kick violators out. However, some traders and collectors in crypto and NFT communities also depend on bots for minting and trading. Botting is often a problem in NFT minting, as their activities can prevent real humans from minting.
