IOTA Address Notifier (I.A.N.) is a Telegram Bot that watches your IOTA address(es). Users add an address* via text-communication. The address is then being observed for incoming new transactions, reattachments or confirmations. In these cases the bot sends the user a Telegram message with further details.

In the back end the I.A.N. Java program handles the Telegram communication and evaluates IRI's ZMQ Stream. Therefore, no direct api calls are made to generate the bot's push notification.


*The Telegram bot watches IOTA addresses only. To make sure no user enters a seed, the bot informs the user repeatedly about the differences between seeds and addresses. In addition the bot does only work if the users agree and confirm that they've read about the differences between seeds and addresses.
