You can PAIR your platform with another platform on a separate device, via the Chat tab. If both devices are present, this is useful for practising with textcoins and smart contracts. It also works when the other device is remote, enabling end-to-end-encrypted chat with strangers online, as well as sending private payments and using smart contracts with them.
You can also pair your device with a bot, which emulates the experience of chatting with a live person. The bot will have very limited responses, but enough to get the job done. A merchant bot could allow you to select from a range of pizzas, for example, then pay for your order with two clicks while still in that chat session.
These bots are the applications on the Obyte platform.
A project to translate these bots started in March 2018. The All translations page tracks which languages have been completed for which bots.

^ Ideally, crypto transactions are trustless, in that neither the sender nor the receiver need trust the other. The more trustful the situation is, the less ideal.

Other bots descriptions
With the help of this specialized chatbot it is possible to develop one's new bot in any programming language. See the Obyte-to-TCP Proxy article section.
Botstore bots descriptions
Bot links are not needed in this article. Access them via the Bot Store in your platform/wallet Chat.
Accredited investor attestation bot
If you are an accredited investor, have your accredited status verified by a licensed attorney and get access to ICOs that sell security tokens to accredited investors only.
Actual verification is outsourced to verifyinvestor.com which already provided this service to a number of ICOs. A licensed attorney checks the submitted documents and confirms the accredited status, then our bot (which is also a witness) posts the attestation record to the DAG. With this record, the issuers can easily see that an investor is accredited, therefore allowed to buy securities.
Blackbytes Exchange (Semi-trustless)
Instantly exchange Blackbytes and Bytes or create your own orders in the book. It's trustless when selling Blackbytes, meaning all users are always in control of their own Blackbytes, and trustful when buying. Need help or want to socialize? You can directly chat with many other users.
This oracle posts Merkle Roots of all Bitcoin transactions in a block every time a new Bitcoin block is mined. You can use its data to p2p trade bytes and bitcoins. If you are receiving bytes (sending btc), chat with the oracle after sending your bitcoins to get the Merkle Proof of your Bitcoin transaction and unlock your bytes from the smart contract.
Buy blackbytes (trustless)
Instantly buy blackbytes for bytes. The sale is done via a conditional payment smart contract, so the seller can't scam you.
Source code: https://github.com/byteball/conditional-token-sale, you can use it to sell your tokens.
This provides a book for users. See the wiki article Trading for details. Note that Bitcoin transaction fees may cause problems with this bot, and you might find a regular exchange better.
Get a chance to win a weekly prize just by linking your existing balance. The greater is your balance, the greater is your chance to win. No payment is required. The prizes are paid from the undistributed funds.
If you refer new users to the draw and one of them wins, you also win.
Email attestation bot
Verify your email address, and your payers don't need to know your Obyte address any longer: they just write your email address as recipient. Note that sending funds to your email address only works with a public attestation in the bot, not a private one.
See the Attestation article for detailed instructions for people new to Obyte.
After the first successful verification, you are rewarded with $10.00 worth of Bytes from the distribution fund if your email is on one of the whitelisted domains (@harvard.edu and @eesti.ee).
Exchange Obyte-issued tokens against Bytes or token vs token. The exchange is based on smart contracts, so you don't have to trust the exchange operator. This is intended for proper ICOs, not for some casual token you just created.
After opening the bot, type "pairs" to see what is available.
Flight delay insurance
This allows one to take out insurance on a possible flight delay one day to three months in the future. See the wiki article Oracle for details.
Flight delays oracle
Used in conjunction with flight delay insurance.
This bot gives out free Tangos, Tingos, Zangos, Zingos and Credits. These fun-coins have zero monetary value so you can practise textcoins and smart contracts with zero risk.
- NOTE: To send fun-coins from your wallet, you will need Bytes to cover the transaction fees, less than 1000 bytes per transaction.
If you wish, you can donate small amounts of Bytes for transaction fees to the sending address, CARJFJ6SKDC2XGLX2XSNMIITAVRDEW2R, but it is not necessary.
This bot is all about user participation and giving gratitude using incentivized Q&A. Users pose questions and add reward with bytes for faster replies, better answers and more importantly to give thanks to participants. Bring in experts on any social platform using a simple link, vote for the right answer and both of you can get rewarded!
This bot was first developed for the Byteball Bot War in December 2018.
Developer: Terence Lee, https://github.com/whoisterencelee/know-it-all-bot
Obyte Asset Manager
See the wiki article Asset for details.
Now we can have referendums. This bot assists in making a vote. A vote is a small transaction that pays to yourself and is signed by your most funded addresses; the weight of the vote is the combined balance of the signing addresses. Note that there is a privacy concern because by making a vote you associate a number of your addresses.
Private Room Chat bot
This chatbot allows several persons to chat together using the Obyte messaging system. The bot decrypts messages and relays them to other users after re-encryption. For best privacy, run your own instance of this bot using the source code below; any cheap Virtual Private Server is enough to host it.
Developer: Papabyte, https://github.com/Papabyte/Private-chat-room
Real name attestation bot
Verify your real name to get access to services that require KYC. Attestation that proves your verification is saved on the public database, but no personal data is published without your request. Your data is saved in your wallet and you can easily disclose it to the service that needs the data. After first successful verification, you are rewarded with $20.00 worth of Bytes from the distribution fund. See Identity verification article for details.
Slice&Dice MUD [Multi-User Dungeon]
Combining the elements of provably fair online gambling and role-playing games, Slice&Dice Dungeon delivers a unique gaming experience for everyone. The player takes a role of a dungeon inhabitant who has come across a violent underground casino. The main goal in this game is to become a powerful and respected member of the community. Doing so requires one to gamble on the Obyte tokens and to get into fights with other players as part of the endless struggle for power.
Sports betting bot (Semi-trustless)
Bet on sport fixtures by taking the trustless offers immediately available. Or be the bookmaker and develop a business by proposing competitive odds for popular events.
There's an extensive wiki article about sports betting and this bot.
Steem attestation bot
Verify your Steem username, and your payers don't need to know your Obyte address any longer: they just write
steem/username as recipient. After first successful verification you get a reward in Bytes, the amount depending on your Steem reputation. Other apps offer discounts or bonuses to users with high reputation. These apps include: ICOs, Real name attestation bot, Buy Bytes with Visa or Mastercard bot.
Also see the wiki Attestation article.
If you have a question regarding steem attestations please submit the details through this Google Form.
Username registration bot
Buy a username and receive money to your @username instead of a less user-friendly cryptocurrency address. Proceeds from the sale of usernames go the Obyte community fund and help fund the development and promotion of the platform.
This is for the Chinese market.
Project website: http://123cb.net, in Chinese only.
Whitelittle reward chat room
Whitelittle is a chat room (in Chinese) for newcomers who want to enter the blockchain industry. The purpose is to build an information discovery ecological platform that provides effective help for newcomers based on the Obyte technology. Here you can chat and help others without being censored and get some rewards.
Donate your device’s spare computing power to help scientists solve the world’s biggest problems in health and sustainability, and earn some Bytes in the meantime. This bot allows you to link your Obyte address and WCG account in order to receive daily rewards for your contribution to WCG computations.
WCG is an IBM sponsored project; more info at https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org
Zork | game
Play one of the earliest interactive fiction computer games developed between 1977 and 1979. The game unfolds in a maze-like dungeon, where the user must battle trolls and solve puzzles in order to find twenty trophies to bring back to the house outside which the game begins.
A lottery which you can play using your Bytes. Three different game modes to participate in and follow the principle of "the winner takes all". All games are provably fair. Each lottery comes with a game proof hash which lets player validate and prove the results against manipulation. [Available in Chinese too]
Slack comment from @vakar 2018-01-10: A bot has no way to connect to the private part of a paired wallet. It can only send text messages to the chat. As long as we only have text (and no html) all bots are safe and cannot "steal coins".
