Telegram registration requires SMS or phone authentication!
This requires a sim card, which requires real-name authentication in my country!
The possibility of robots in Telegram is very low!

There are still some countries that don't require any kind of verification though, so this isn't a very good reason to believe that it's unlikely for bots/alts to appear. Even if your country does link your identity to your numbers, Telegram doesn't, so they won't know it's the same person using multiple numbers. Some people say they can get Google Voice numbers to work with Telegram too, so it's probably quite easy to set up bots/alts.

But yeah there is no easy way to tell. Bots may be easier to catch because they typically aren't very sophisticated, but alts can be almost impossible to detect if their owner is smart enough. You just have to not trust anyone blindly and not judge the size of the community by just the number of members.

Fairly easy to tell if you spend some time in there. If you see telegram channels with 10k+ members, that's already huge. Usually real and active telegram channels have between 100 and 1000 active users. Most of those users that aren't active join because it's part of the bounty or requirements for the airdrop. That doesn't mean they aren't real, they just wont really say anything or pay much attention to the channel.

There are some groups which got filled (100k members) and then they made another group. Like EOPT is one such group. They made 4 groups with almost 360k members. How did they get so many members? Or how did someone create so many bots?

Not really.
OP, only admin can check the list of users.

You can have an easy gut feel with it when you are in a telegram group you can observe how many of those members are really real people just by the way they talk and the best thing is how accurate is there reply to you and other members. Some users only give worthless messages such as "when lambo?” this is where you know that these members are not there to really talk about the ICO. Just have a feel with the community and you will know of that group is worthy of your time.

Silent types who only ever drop referral links are bots. Or might as well be.

In some countries multiple sim card is still allowed and it not required to register your sim card number under your name. So they could register in telegram using multiple  sim card numbers.

Bot accounts reply you with a certain fixed lines and everytime you ask them the same question they automatically answer with the same line.
But people will be irrite if you keep asking the same question all over again, when you create a telegram account a number is needed so it need people for it, but some members on the telegram group only join to the group because it was requirement for airdrops/ campaign/ Investment.

I must tell you that half of them are bots, spam or clone accounts. I had my own experience of asking question in a >50k mem ico telegram group, what i got, no answer  Cry
These silent crowded telegram groups are results of airdrop campaign.

THere are no audit services for Telegram. But still youll need to have a sim-card for every bot, which isnt that simple
but now we have some service like virtual phone number like: textnow, textplus. Cheater use these app to create hundred even thousand phone mumber. So in some project, most of members are fake. We need audit tool like twitteraudit to resolve this problem

Well, things can be done inside this channel and they can easily promote the project with the help of mass ads sp even inside telegram those bounty
hunters will do their best in order to collect/gain more rewards, better not to rely with it much better to ask directly with the devs or inside the post
thread so chances to got some real answer will happen.

Do not expect that there will be at least half the people alive! I asked a simple question to the group where it was 8000 users in response I got nothing for many hours in a row! Only advertising and stupid disputes.

As we're doing ICO now a lot of scammers write to us on Telegram offering their services - they impersonate popular influencers. So just be careful.

You can check all telegram group participants and if you find big amount of deleted accounts(it's bots), you can to assess the quality of the channel itself and its participants

How do one know if the members of a project's telegram group are real people and not Bots. Also are there telegram audit services that can tell how many fake members are in a group.

This is a funny question cause I also thought people in telegram groups are bots. But seriously speaking, you would know if they are real if they answer you not generically, but digging deep into your question.

I have seen some telegram groups with more than 15K members. But the activities are very very less. We can see massages once in a while. I think those groups have been filled with fake members.
