Verification via social networks

Verification via centralized social network

Crypto.Page uses the status of a verified user in one of the centralized social networks in order to link this verified status with the user's public address (wallet). This process consists of the following steps:

  • A user who wants to verify their identity on Crypto.Page generates, but does not send, a transaction signed with the private key (the one for which they want to verify).

  • The user creates a message with the text of the signed transaction in a centralized social network with a mark on the verification of identity and makes a call to the API Crypto.Page to perform the verification.

    • This step and the previous one are implemented via the Page.DAPP interface - i.e. transparent and easy for the user.

  • The automatic process analyzes verification requests and makes sure that the post signed with the private key of the user's wallet appears on the social network of this user. This means that the user has access to this wallet, and has access to this social network - thus the association with a real person in this centralized social network can be transferred to the same association between the user's wallet, and this person or organization of the real world.

  • The automatic process records the fact of verification into the Crypto.Page database, and Page.DAPP displays the corresponding status inside the app.
