Coinbase Has Begun Using the Ethereum Attestation Service for On-chain Credential Verification


Coinbase has implemented on-chain verification to improve app functionality and community involvement.

On November 9, Coinbase released a feature that allows users to confirm their account and nation credentials on-chain and have access to additional privileges.

According to Coinbase’s support pages, granted verifications are intended to function as a “trusted badge” that enables access to on-chain apps and advantages. Users will initially receive a badge in Base’s Guild — the membership program for its second-layer network, Base — as well as access to a special Discord channel, according to Coinbase.

Coinbase also stated that verification will soon allow access to gasless (i.e., feeless) transactions, as well as access to other Base network participating apps. Three DeFi systems are among the upcoming apps: Index Coop, Perennial, and Volmex.

According to Dune Analytics community data, Coinbase has issued over 9,700 attestations to over 6,200 unique recipients since late October.


Coinbase explains the prerequisites for participation

More information can be found on the rest of the help page. It specifies that verifications can be associated with any self-custodial Ethereum (EVM) wallet address but cannot be transferred to other addresses. According to a different part, the verification can be linked to up to three addresses, including MetaMask and Coinbase Wallet accounts.


Coinbase stated that verifying one’s nation of residence is optional, but that access to some apps may be required. It also guaranteed users that their data would not be released on-chain without their permission.

Users must have a Coinbase account that is not subject to buying, selling, or trading restrictions in order to validate an account on-chain, according to Coinbase.


Coinbase also stated that it hopes to eventually allow other parties to provide verifications through the program and broaden the methods by which users can be confirmed.

Verifications are issued by the Ethereum Attestation Service (EAS), an Ethereum community initiative that is also used by other projects like as Optimism.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.

We thankyou for the on-going support our readers have bestowed monetarily. If you have not considered supporting CryptoCaster, if you can, please consider supporting us just once from $1 or more of Bitcoin (satoshi) or Eth, and better yet, support us every month with a little more.
