We are excited to showcase our dedicated domain name owners/sellers on our platform. The team has been working hard to enable a way to add legitimacy to sellers who form a part of our loyal community.

Therefore, we have decided to verify sellers that meet certain standards and we have also added a filter that allows you to only search for domain names by these sellers. Loyal/legitimate users now have the opportunity to apply to be certified with a badge on our UI.This is a label that validates the quality of your domain names across the Solana Name Service (SNS). It will assure buyers of the calibre and standard you uphold of SNS overall.

Of course, with everything there are some rules to uphold.

To be eligible for verification:

  1. You cannot have any suspicious domain names. These include:
  • Multiple domain names with improper Zero Width Joiners (ZWJ).

  • Domain names cannot include profanities, racist and homophobic slurs or anything that would fall under this spectrum. This evaluation will be up to the discretion of the team.

  1. You would have to own a reasonable amount of domain names. Reasonable would be considered to be 10 or above. Be assured, this is not done in a discriminatory practice, but more so to ascertain that the user applying is in fact a serious seller. This is often indicated by a user owning numerous domain names.

  2. You would have to have your Twitter handle linked to the wallet address associated with the domain names you own. Ultimately, registering your Twitter handle would add an extra layer of security, as a way to not mislead our buyers/users.

To apply for verification:

  1. Post your sellers profile link in the category “Verification Application” on the forum. Thus, the team and community can evaluate the standard of your domains collaboratively.

The “SELLER PROFILE” link can be obtained in two ways.

First, click on a domain that you are auctioning. The “SELLER PROFILE” link will be available as shown below. Copy and paste it in the “Verification Application” category in a new thread.

Additional notes:

The decision to grant and revoke verification is completely up to the Bonfida DAO (i.e. community & team). Given we realise any suspicious behaviour whatsoever - such as, transferring illegitimate domain names before approval and transferring them back afterwards, could result in consequences being faced. These consequences include being revoked of your verification badge as well as the possibility of being flagged as a “risky seller”.

Overall, this is an ode to our loyal users and showing admiration to our dedicated sellers. We definitely do not want anyone taking advantage of this.

To end it off, if you think you are eligible - do not hesitate to apply. We look forward to verifying you!
