Sadly, bot accounts will exist forever and even on mainstream social media sites and music streaming sites, I was getting more likes on a recent track I uploaded on Soundcloud than actual listens so I don't think you'll ever get away from them.
As for advertising what Hive and Leo is etc, a proper marketing team who know how that all works is key I reckon. Not focusing on rewards but as a place where there's an active, open and engaging community to share your opinions without getting "cancelled" is probably a better approach now. Strike while the irons hot kinda thing.
