IOTA Discord custom commands

The IOTA discord server uses the Dyno-bot. This bot is a beneficial tool to manage discord servers. Besides essential functions for the admins of the server, it hosts the ability to execute custom commands for every user. We have enabled several commands to display pre-configured messages containing answers to the discord's most asked questions.

A custom command message can be initiated by using the ! sign directly followed by the command text.

Here is the list of currently availeable commands:
