There are several bots that reside in the #bitcoin-assets irc channel that provide real-time updates and/or respond to commands.
If a bot responds to commands, that bot will have a command prefix. Put the prefix in front of the command to get the bots attention. Most bots will also respond to commands via /query or /msg. If you are going to send several commands or the results of your commands are not applicable to the entire channel, consider sending the commands privately in order to avoid cluttering the channel.
