How It Works
The process of minting a Galxe Passport is a quick 👇
Make sure to have a government issued identification document on hand, a good camera that can take clear pictures.
The first part is uploading a picture of one of your identity documents for Persona to process.
You'll get three options to choose from when verifying your Identity and minting a Galxe Passport!
Let's break down the process of how Galxe Passport operates:
1. Persona Identity Verification: When asked for your identity information on galxe.com, a unique identifier (UUID) is generated and sent to Persona, a third-party vendor responsible for identity verification. This UUID is temporary and gets deleted once the verification process is complete.
2. Constructing Galxe Passport With the approved inquiry from Persona, you'll get guided to create your Galxe Passport, which involves a few steps, including signing the data, encrypting it with your chosen strong password, and passing it back to Galxe for secure storage.
3. Minting Galxe Passport Soulbound Token Once your Galxe Passport is safely stored, you can mint the Galxe Passport Soulbound Token (SBT). This unique NFT certifies your verification status through Galxe, serving as a proof-of-human mechanism for Sybil attack prevention.
