You should not use this bot unless you understand exactly what it does. It requires your active_key and its use is not recommended. Do not ask me for support if it sends all of your money somewhere.

Hello Nurse (hello_nurse) is a bot that will transfer money to Dr. Otto bots when you vote a certain way.

For example, you can configure this bot to watch for 1% votes by you, and when that happens, transfer 2 SBD to your favorite pay-for-vote bot. The memo will be set to the post that got a 1% upvote.


To use this Radiator bot:

$ sudo apt-get install ruby-full git openssl libssl1.0.0 libssl-dev
$ gem install bundler
$ gem install bundler

I've tested it on various versions of ruby. The oldest one I got it to work was:

ruby 2.0.0p645 (2015-04-13 revision 50299) [x86_64-darwin14.4.0]

First, clone this gist and install the dependencies:

$ git clone https://github.com/inertia186/hello_nurse.git
$ cd hello_nurse
$ bundle install

Edit the configuration file hello_nurse.yml

  :mode: irreversible

  :trigger_vote_weight: 2.00 %
  :enable_comments: true
  :max_vote_elapse: 600
    :active_key: 5JrvPrQeBBvCRdjv29iDvkwn3EQYZ9jqfAHzrCyUvfbEbRkrYFC
    :amount: 4.000 SBD
    :active_key: 5XXXBadWifXXXdjv29iDvkwn3EQYZ9jqfAHzrCyUvfbEbRkrYFC
    :amount: 4.000 SBD

Before you run it, make sure you and understand and fully control the voter accounts. Any vote that matches the trigger weight will initiate a transfer. Before running this bot, ensure all automated voting has been disabled or else this bot may transfer unexpected amounts.

Then run it:

$ ruby hello_nurse

Check here to see an updated version of this bot:



Typically, you can upgrade to the latest version by this command, from the original directory you cloned into:

$ git pull

Usually, this works fine as long as you haven't modified anything. If you get an error, try this:

$ git stash --all
$ git pull --rebase
$ git stash pop

If you're still having problems, I suggest starting a new clone.


Problem: What does this error mean?
hello_nurse.yml:1: syntax error, unexpected ':', expecting end-of-input
Solution: You ran ruby hello_nurse.yml but you should run ruby hello_nurse.

Problem: Everything looks ok, but every time hello_nurse tries to post, I get this error:
`from_base58': Invalid version (RuntimeError)
Solution: You're trying to vote with an invalid key.

Make sure the .yml file voters item have the correct account name and WIF posting key.

Problem: The node I'm using is down.

Is there a list of nodes?

Solution: Yes, special thanks to @ripplerm.

hello inertia,
is hello_nurse offline???



Oops. No, it wasn't offline. I just forgot to make it public. It's public now, thanks for checking!!


Thanks to you for programming it!

Wow, this is really cool. It seems to be for much larger accounts, but damn I wish I had the right reasons to play with this. Seriously this is awesome @inertia - very impressed. I need to spend more time programming 🤣

I am downloading this and firing it up straight away! ;)
I have no idea what this does, but the warnings caught my attention.


Yes, me too, haha @whatsup


HA HA same here but I have windows :D plus I never did anything simmilar :}


even if I could, I would transfer 99% of my money to "Savings" as I troll the bot giving me errors like "error transfer - not enough SBD" XD


Will this work on pay for bots not using Dr otto like randowhale?

Wow, another awesome tool by @inertia Thanks buddy for all you do , these tools are really great!

Nice, Im a bit jealous on you developer guys, when I see some developing, I like it a lot, I have never learned the skill though :)

If you don't recommend to use it, why do you promote it?


feel the burn..lol
