Identity verification

After updating your identity on the Dock blockchain, you can verify your on-chain identity by submitting a request, called a judgement, to the Dock registrar. This is highly recommend for validators to gain credibility in the network. The identity fields that can be submitted for judgement include legal name, email, website, Twitter handle and Riot handle. Once verified, your account name will show a green check mark next to it.

Verified accounts will appear with a green check mark

How to submit a request for identity verification

Prior to submitting a judgement, you will need to complete your identity setup by following the steps here.

Once your identity details are added on-chain, go to the Extrinsics UI and select the identity pallet, then requestJudgement. For the reg_index put the index of the registrar you want to be judged by, which is "0" for the Dock registrar, and for the max_fee put the maximum you're willing to pay for these confirmations.
