I have read in the telegram channel of the ICO project which i am going to onveat and it says that the team requirea the bounty hunter to do KYC because there are many bots being joined on their campaigns. So if the team accusing of the likes of this event meaning there are bots in the BCT forum? I wonder how many bots i encountered and doing conversation with them here in the forum. So far from the experience i had from threads i reply most of the time there are comments having some few words and most of it are generic which means it could apply to all threads when posted.

I'm not completely sure about bots, but it's probably more of account farmers(people with 5+ accounts) than bots that they're trying to prevent from joining their bounty campaign. While I really don't like KYC at all, that's probably one effective way for them to prevent people with lots of accounts joining their campaign.

and sometimes farmers do fraudulent things when they follow gift articles. they steal the BCT profile link from other people and enter their own articles. because there are many cases that I see like that and many other fraud cases and KYC solutions

You can have several accounts but you can't (you can but it is prohibited) use them in bounties, you can sell it to other users for money.

There are some scam ICOs that use these bots as an argument to get your docs "KYC," I do not recommend sending any documents unless you know and guarantee that project "known team, have plans,..etc.".

Many people have more than one account[1] to participate in more than one campaign and thus increase their profits "scam using alts." also, some use scripts which can post simple words[2] like good project, excellent, thanks,..etc.

Obviously there are, and there are probably multiple types of bots, whether bots that are made to purely spam the forum, or if they are in a signature campaign and using a bot to generate their posts. All of these are possible and have happened in the past.

Your concern here is mostly on the KYC that you have to submit.

I think that when it comes to your personal information, the best policy is to not submit anything if possible. If you don't know who's going to be handling your data and they are forcing you to hand it over, which is something that I wouldn't be comfortable with - don't join it.

they just make it up as a reason, ultimately they are just collecting personal data
if bots are their concerns, there are other ways to filter out bots and fraudulent participants
what stop a registrant from using multiple stolen/fake ids to register on their campaigns?
I'm pretty sure they don't have access or ability to check the authenticity of submitted ids
