A Handy Guide To Verification On Versum

In order to prevent copyminting and rampant botting, we have instituted a simple verification mechanism to ensure that everyone using Versum is a legitimate person who is a part of our Tezos creative community. While there is no gatekeeping on Versum, anyone can buy and sell on the platform, registration is encouraged. In cases where no registration has been made, some restrictions will apply.

Unverified Users

If you are unverified, you can buy any ITEM on Versum, unless the artist has restricted sales to verified users only. You can swap any ITEM, but any sales will remain in escrow for two weeks. An unverified user can not mint.

To Receive Verification

You must have social proofs from one of the Tezos identity services. The more proofs you have, the more likely you will have the option to be verified, as Versum is constantly monitoring these services and updating its allow list. To get your social proofs, update your profile in one of the Tezos identity managers (Tezos Profiles, TZKT, SUBJKT, or TezID). Versum looks at TezosProfiles first, so at least do that one, and add as many proofs as you're comfortable with.

Once you have done this, an on-chain verification button will appear in Settings -> Account in your Versum profile. This will trigger a wallet dialogue and we will write your verification status to the blockchain. After that, you will have unrestricted access to all of Versum's features.

NOTE: the button is not instant. The list of wallets to be processed is updated daily, so it may take up to 24 hours for the button to appear.

Claiming funds on escrow

If you have already received funds from sales on the secondary market and choose to get verified, we will soon be adding new functionality to withdraw your funds from escrow without having to wait for the two-week period to finish. Alternatively, click here to manually withdraw your funds. Enter 0 as the amount.
