What is Verification on OpenSea?

Verification is a process that confirms the authenticity and ownership of an NFT account or collection. OpenSea offers two types of verification: account verification and collection verification. Account verification ensures that the user behind the account is genuine, while collection verification confirms the ownership of a particular collection.

Verified accounts and collections have a badge that helps users distinguish verified NFTs from unverified ones. The verification badge is a blue checkmark that appears next to the account or collection name. The badge adds credibility to the user’s profile and collection, making it more appealing to potential buyers.
