The BOTS app reviews: Wilma & Louise
To grow and pursue our goals, we need to have a strong community of users, developers, and colleagues. Today we give the floor to two users of the app: Wilma and Louise. Two of the many users will tell us something about their experiences with the BOTS app!
Wilma & Louise
“I’ll put you on speaker,” Wilma laughs, “my mother is sitting next to me, and she is also very enthusiastic about the BOTS app.” Today we speak with Wilma and her mother, Louise. Wilma is a 57-year-old from Brabant and has been happily married for 38 years. “I already trade stocks with my husband. Although honestly, it’s more his thing than mine. Fortunately, BOTS is now completely my thing.”
One Sunday morning, Wilma was watching Business Class with her husband. “Just like every Sunday. We watch Business Class every week because it’s not only interesting but also very educational.” On this particular Sunday, Michiel and Colin sat at the table to talk about the BOTS app. “And I got excited about it. I wouldn’t say I like trading with stocks, but this concept appealed to me. So I immediately downloaded the app that Sunday.”
Wilma deposited her first €500 and got her first returns pretty much straight away. “That’s a good start,” she says, “that you immediately see some returns.” The fact that she was now trading crypto didn’t matter to Wilma. “I don’t know anything about crypto at all, and to be honest, I found the descriptions of the bots abracadabra. I didn’t understand it at all.”
Nevertheless, Wilma is confident in this way of trading. “A supercomputer that trades for you. It really couldn’t get any smarter, could it?”
Wilma is so excited that she shares her experiences with her mother, 76-year-old Louise. “I’m as crazy as my daughter,” says Louise, “and she knows what I like and dislike. So I immediately downloaded the app and got started.” Today, the ladies share their BOTS app experiences.
Wilma, Louise & BOTS
“At first, I wasn’t sure what I was doing,” Wilma reveals, “but I have learned a lot. Especially through Discord. A fantastic platform.” She shares the knowledge that she gains there with Louise, which results in both ladies working on the BOTS app together.
“Nice,” says Louise, “we already do everything together, so why not trade with the BOTS app as well?” They discuss specific bots, returns and possible tactics. “We both wanted to get into Joe Daredevil,” Wilma laughs, “and guess what? My mother got a spot before I did.”
“For me, there is an immediate area for improvement,” says Louise, “Joe Daredevil did well for me. So I would have liked to have been able to skim off my winnings. I have to stop the bot completely if I want to take the returns, but then I lose my coveted spot. That’s a shame.”
Wilma agrees. “That is indeed an option that I am missing right now, just like the ability to deposit money into my available funds. If I can just leave a “pile” of money here, I can start a bot anytime, anywhere. I don’t always have my debit card with me to make an Ideal payment.”
Apart from the points for improvement that both ladies mention, they are very enthusiastic about the BOTS app. “It’s incredibly user-friendly,” says Wilma, “so easy that I could explain it to my mother in no time.” Louise can only confirm this. “In the beginning, my daughter helped me out, but by now, I can do it myself. I’m learning when I have to step into a certain bot, as the entry point also largely determines your return.”
Wilma is so enthusiastic about the BOTS app that she sells her share package and invests this money with BOTS. “I like this so much more than trading stocks or ETFs. It makes it a lot more fun to work with.” In about four months, Wilma achieved an average return of 5%. “That’s great, of course, and I would’ve never saved that amount in today’s stock market.”
The future of BOTS
The enthusiasm of both women has also resulted in them promoting the BOTS app within their network. “Yes, of course,” Wilma explains, “it is that simple to use. I think everyone should at least give it a try. And of course, there are always people who are bummed that they can’t buy a Ferrari with their returns right away, but you don’t invest for the short term; you invest for the long term. If you want to get rich quick, you should rob a bank.”
Wilma’s enthusiasm is so great that she also decides to become a certificate holder. “I bought 50 certificates because I believe in the concept of the BOTS app. So you can see that my own BOTS app experiences also result in investing.”
Yet, despite her enthusiasm, she remains critical. “That is necessary because otherwise nothing will be improved, and I don’t think that is the intention.” The growth of BOTS is going fast; Wilma also sees that: “And that sometimes goes hand in hand with growing pains, such as with the graphs. What I think is very good to see is how BOTS picks up all feedback and responds to it, which gives me a lot of confidence in the future.”
Wilma’s expectations for the future of BOTS are incredibly positive: “Otherwise, I would not have bought certificates. I am convinced that BOTS will eventually go on the stock exchange itself. Just as I am convinced that there will be more and more positive BOTS app experiences.”
Finally, we also want to know which bot is their favourite. “Joe Daredevil,” says Louise, “without a doubt.” Wilma laughs: “That is also one of my favourites. That’s why it’s a good thing that after my mother, I was also able to get a place.”
There is no such thing as risk-free trading. It is possible to lose (part of) your stake.
