How to use the Telegram Bot

Bitzlato review

The process is simple; as a user you simply launch TG bot. Make sure that username of the bot is @BTC_CHANGE_BOT. Sometimes scammers write this in the description of the profile so it can lead to misunderstanding. ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT THE USERNAME IS WRITTEN AS FOLLOWS [email protected]_CHANGE_BOT.  

Step 1: We will consider the buying and selling of Bitcoin using Mpesa on the service. Go to the BTC banker bot and then click menu “Exchange BTC/KES.”

Step 2: In the message received, Select “My adverts”. The following message will show up

Step 3: Assuming you want to buy BTC, you will simply click on “You want to buy BTC”. A dialog will appear where you will quickly choose “Electronic Payments” and then this menu will appear.

Since you are in Kenya and you are seeking to buy BTC, you can then choose Mpesa as a method of payment. 

Step 4: The next step is to simply choose the rate at which you would want to buy the BTC with i.e. 0%, 0.5% 4%,6% etc. You will then write a min. and a max limit in KES on the bot.

Step 5: To see the ad, you have created Click “Exchange BTC/KES” and you will see your advert and to make it active click “start trading” and your advert will be running. 

If there are active traders on the service selling BTC, you will quickly get an offer from an of them who is interested.

This same process can be repeated and used when selling BTC using the Telegram Bot version. 

After the funds are credited or sent to your Mobile Money wallet (Mpesa). You can the release the coins by clicking “Release coins to the buyer” and then confirming your decision in response to the Bots question.


Creating and Viewing Ads

The web-version of the platform has a more precise design. The following a simple way that you can use to create ads to either buy or sell btc from the marketplace.  

Step 1: Simply click on “Creating Advert” to buy or sell bitcoin. This is what will appear on the interface whether you are using your phone or PC to access the web version.

This is how to Create Advert: –

  1. Click Advert Type and choose either “selling” or “purchasing”.
  2. You then choose the currency you want i.e. BTC, ETH etc.
  3. You then choose the currency in Kenya-KES
  4. Click on the Payment Method and choose “Mpesa.”
  5. You then move to set a floating rate or a specific rate.
  6. Then set a minimal currency amount & Maximal currency rate and the lastly create and Ad. 

Remember that you can also merge the two version: the web version & the Telegram version. But make sure that you follow all the instructions and NEVER pass given code for merging the accounts to third parties even if “support team” asks you to do so.
