How do people have blue check marks on the fediverse lol

@DavidBond they just put it in their name as an emoji. Anyone can add it., just copy and paste it in.

What I don’t understand is why anyone would bother. The fact that there’s no central authority to “verify” you seems fundamental to the whole concept of federation.

I think that sounds harsher than I mean it. If people want check mark emojis in their name ultimately I don’t care. I just don’t get it.

There actually is a way you can verify for real on mastodon though.. its called keybase and/or keyoxide. Both will truly verify an account.

@b6hydra @DavidBond

@freemo @b6hydra @DavidBond Yeab but what prevents me from registering on Keybase as say joebiden and then verifying that? Or am I missing something?
