The cryptocurrency world is vast and wide, but it is not always accessible for people wanting to dive into the specifics of a determined currency. Many times the knowledge is fragmented in a lot of sites, making the newcomer face a high barrier to start learning about cryptocurrencies. And while official resources are important, sometimes they fail to aggregate most of the important data about the currency itself.
Alpha or @AllAbouteCashbot is a Telegram resource that seeks to ease the pain of newcomers getting into the eCash world. It does so by offering them a hub of knowledge about several important facts of the currency. The bot can be consulted at any time, and it includes useful links that the author considered important for eCash fans.
Alpha includes links to important eCash resources, like the official eCash page and also to eCashNewsToday, to give people relevant information about the state of the project. The bot also includes a list of exchanges where the user can go and purchase XEC for investing, a piece of important information given that some exchanges have still to list eCash. Curiously, it includes a button that reports on the status of eCash’s Coinbase.com listing (still yet to happen at the time of writing).
eCash Resources Available
The bot also points to “Proof of Writing”, a series of eCash related articles written by Cain, who is coincidentally the same Cain that organised the “100 days of eCash” meme contest on Twitter, which is also linked by the tool. Another interesting feature of the bot is that it helps users to learn about what makes eCash different from other cryptocurrency projects, including avalanche, staking, eTokens, and the new denomination scheme.
It also lists other projects like for instance the eCash VR Hub that was presented as part of eCash’s Twitter contest or the paper wallet generator for eCash that allows users to keep their funds secure. But maybe one of the most important resources the bot offers is a list of regional Telegram groups dedicated to the promotion of eCash. This helps non-English users to get help and resources in their native language with group members sharing their knowledge and experience with people new to the eCash project. The creator of Alpha, @fmc62O explained:
"The reason I did this is because I could. The way I see it, having knowledge means nothing if you don’t share it with others."
