Hey! I am trying to add a feature for a client that requires retrive info of last trades made by bot.


My question is:


Anyone knows what is the rate limit of send a message to person?


I didn't find anything in docs. I tried 100 ms of delay beetween each msg but still getting rate limit exceeded.


Thanks in advance

Is the Bot Account a free Account?

I can send so many MSGs i want from my BOT to my main Account.

But why u must send a message all 100ms?
This are 10 MSGs per second and 60 in a minute 🤔
Is not enough once per hour or on request?

In my mind, there are no limitations.
Only on Profile Comments...

I have limited MSGs from Users to my BOT by my self to 1 MSG in 2 sec ...Otherwise they get autoblocked from my BOT

But there was a chat update few days ago, i dont know if there are changes like this

EDIT: I spam my Bot for few minutes, all works fine, can u send ur code to take a look?
