Litentry Teams Up With Bondly To Link Twitter Accounts to Ethereum Wallet

Bondly Finance now integrates with Litentry’s registrar service that focuses on linking Twitter accounts to Ethereum accounts in an automatic and transparent way. This is done with protocols featuring easy understanding interfaces of an Account Linker (account proving verification tool) and an Identification Platform (a data registration service endpoint).

The website of the Identification Platform is hosted by the Litentry Technology GmbH.

Prototype of the Identification Platform

In order to distinguish or even display the crypto identities binding to these ethereum addresses, Litentry can integrate APIs from external NFT market platforms like OpenSea, to get data analysis inputs of these ethereum addresses.

The Identification Platform also features an entrance to the Account Linker page for verification service. The account linker features two verification methods each for proving Twitter account ownership and Ethereum account ownership, and the user interface for the whole process.

In the Twitter verification process, users need to follow the Litentry official registrar account, namely Litentry Registrar (@LitentryReg). Users also need to set their accounts to receive private messages in their privacy settings. Otherwise, they won’t be able to receive messages from the Litentry registrar. The Twitter verification protocol generates a JWT token and sends it to the user’s Twitter account. As soon as the verification link is confirmed, a verification success message is sent to the user. And the status of Twitter verification is set to “verified”.

In the Ethereum address verification process, users need to use Metamask to sign a ‘tx’. As soon as the platform confirms the signature, a verification success message is sent to the user. And the status of Ethereum address verification is set to “verified”.

As soon as the user completes Twitter verification and the Ethereum address verification processes, the platform then generates a T2E (Twitter to Ethereum) certificate for these two accounts. And the two accounts will be marked as “linked to each other” across the platform.

  • T2E stands for “Twitter to Ethereum”. A T2E certificate is a credential with a timestamp generated by the Litentry servers to testify that a Twitter account and an Ethereum address are linked to the same owner.. For now, these certificates are stored in Litentry’s server database, centrally endorsed by Litentry Technology GmbH. They are currently being displayed on the company’s website. These certificates will be distributed to their rightful owners when Lintentry’s decentralized validation service goes live.
  • When T2E certificates are shown to be ‘linked’ it only represents the accounts that are validated and owned by the same owner; there are no further functionalities are represented beyond this stamp

Bondly users will be identified with a unique ID each time they visit the platform to verify their T2E certification. If a user abandons the process during verification and does not complete the linking process, the T2E certificate generation process will fail and they will need to restart the process if they want to proceed.

Litentry guarantees that each T2E certificate generated will guarantee the user behind the verification process is the same user as the ones with ‘linked’ accounts because all processes relative to their technical stack will be listed on their site after the verification process.

Conclusion

As we continue to bring the NFT crypto space closer to non-crypto native users, Litentry’s product helps solve a real problem in the NFT community. As we look to build on utilities in the NFT space, this solution helps complete the circle of the discover-verify-interact user scenarios when engaging in NFT sales and identity verification.
