Feature: CAs and CA verification
The current process for asset verification has proven confusing and has opened up the possibility of the community being scammed due to insufficient signage in the wallet when swapping assets.
Also, the current process of verification is extremely permissioned and governed by a small number of people (the beam team)
I propose the following solutions that should be the closest to the ideal final state thus far:
SCRAP current verification model
The Beam team shouldn’t be tasked with choosing the criteria to meet when assigning a ‘verified badge’, which currently has no guidelines or listed pre-requisites.
If possible, allow users to verify ownership of there social media accounts and website in a similar way to keybase to activate the ‘verified ownership’ badge in wallet.
MANUAL ADDING OF CAs
Create a system where a hyperlink can enable the asset in wallet (similar to how a hyperlink can open Telegram and navigate to a group) where user is presented with a ‘confirm asset add’.
Alongside this, have a section in wallet where users can choose from the ‘confirmed ownership’ assets’ to integrate into the wallet. (users can still manually add non ownership confirmed assets manually)
Once a user has ‘added’ an asset to the wallet, they are then able to see the swap offers, users should only see swap offers for assets they’ve integrated!
