A New Duplication Control and Verification Process Has Been Developed by OpenSea
OpenSea, a major player in the NFT market, is finally addressing the age-old problem of platform fraud. Its verification procedure and duplicate detection protocols have been improved as a result.
OpenSea’s first goal will be to combat what it calls “CopyMints,” or outright plagiarism. To do this, it will use image detecting software that considers mirrored and rotated photos, as well as human intervention to reach a final decision.
As a follow-up, OpenSea has overhauled its authentication method. Verification will be applied at both the account and collection levels in the future. To begin, each OpenSea account with a trading volume greater than 100 ETH will receive an invitation to join the program in the form of a blue banner at the top of the window.
A profile photo is required to be included, as well as a name and email address. Users must also link a Twitter account. OpenSea will then take a look at whether or not they should be included. Users can apply for a collection badge once they have their account level blue checkmark. Basically, the 100 ETH rule and the setup process are the same.
Due to its early stages, the new system is not yet as stringent as some members may want it to be.
