Add Steemit.com Account Authentications to KeyBase's list of Verifiable WebsitessteemCreated with Sketch.

https://keybase.io/

Components

This request pertains to the list of verifiable websites on the Client side of the Keybase software.

Proposal

There needs to be an additional verification method for the Steemit.com domain name, specifically for individual user accounts.

One potential method could be for Keybase to make an Official company Steemit account and accept small SBD or Steem transfers from the to-be-verified user. This could be accomplished through the verification dialog box, along with a generated memo ID.

This would then verify their Steemit accounts on the Keybase Platform after the transfer is cleared.

Mockups / Examples

This is what the user interface could look like with the addition of Steemit.com's domain on the user's home page of the application:

Here's what the verification screen might look like:

Benefits

The benefits of this request include:

  • The ability to verify Steemit user accounts outside of the Steemit platform.
  • Scammers will have a harder time impersonating genuine accounts.
