    I want to create 10 accounts in the same niche, and all of them are going to have similar names. For example, if I were in pets niche, I would name them something like cutepetsdaily, cutecatsdaily, cutedogsdaily, etc for 10 accounts. I am going to be botting on all accounts. Would that risk all of my accounts getting banned?

    I'm no expert on this, but you should limit the interaction between them (likes, etc). But that having the same name or different.

    Not necessarily, then I could easily get rid of my competitors by making accounts with similar names to theirs and then spam away.

    Of course you can even like photos between the accounts. Unless all your accounts gets flagged by the algorithm for suspicious activity, then IG can't really in a safe automatic way link your accounts to each other - again if this is the case, I'd start accounts with a similar name and spam like my competitors :)

    No. As long as you use proxies and different emails to verify them, you won't be in any trouble.

    I have an account in the fitness niche and this one guy comments "Hey want to be my rep? Check my bio for main account and number. Text me if you're interested." or something similar on all my photos. He has like 10k accounts with names like "desupply_6002, desupply_6003, desupply_6072" and so on (search on Instagram if you don't believe me). He also links to his main account in the bio of all these accounts.

    If he didn't get banned so far, you wouldn't get banned either.

    Yeah, I've seen so many numbered accounts. Like Petsdaily001, Petsdaily002, etc.
