Link to this section Functions

Checks if the Discord bot token has the correct format.

We check if the token is a binary followed by splitting it into 3 parts separated by a dot ".". The first part is the Base64 encoded user_id which we decode and parse into as integer. The second part is an encoded timestamp, and the last part an arbitrary cryptographic signature.

Raises on failure.
