What are the criteria to get verified on OpenSea?
To get verified on OpenSea, you need to buy at least one NFT in the last three months.
Your account needs to have an email address, profile picture, and a banner.
OpenSea reviews account verification requests in four categories.
Firstly, you’ll have a higher chance of getting accepted if you’re notable in art, entertainment, technology, music, sports, gaming, news, politics, or activism (e.g. Rob Gronkowski).
You can also be notable in artistic, technical, or social innovations (e.g. Simon de la Rouviere).
Secondly, accounts that are more likely to be verified are the ones with severe fraud risk (e.g. Budweiser).
Lastly, being verified on another social media platform will also increase your chances of getting verified on OpenSea.
Who is ineligible for an OpenSea verification?
Accounts that engage in manipulative or deceptive buying, selling, bidding, and offers are ineligible for an OpenSea verification.
Accounts that use copyrighted material or trademarks without a license are also ineligible.
In addition, you need to be 18 and above to apply for an OpenSea verification.
Lastly, any account that violates OpenSea’s terms of service will not be accepted.

Here’s how to get verified on OpenSea:
1. Apply for verification
If your account meets the criteria for an OpenSea verification, you can apply for it.
Firstly, click on this link: https://airtable.com/shr6kWzFZ4gWdYE6C to go to the application form.
Once you’re on the form, you need to select the verification that you’re applying for.
For example, if you’re applying for account verification, select “Account verification”.
Next, you need to provide a link to your OpenSea account and your full name.
You can copy the link to your OpenSea account by navigating to your profile, clicking on the share icon, and clicking on “Copy”.
2. Provide an email and proof of identity
After you’ve provided your full name, you need to provide a valid email for your account.
The email address that you’re providing should be the same email that is registered to your OpenSea account.
Next, you need to provide proof of identity for your account.
You can either link your LinkedIn, GitHub, Twitter, or Instagram profile.
3. Post a tweet containing your wallet address
If you’ve provided a link to your Twitter account, you need to provide a link to a public tweet.
The tweet needs to say, “Hello @opensea” followed by your wallet address.
Here’s an example of a tweet:
Hello @opensea !
After you’ve tweeted the message, you need to copy the link to it.
You can do so by tapping on the share icon followed by “Copy Link”.
4. Paste the link to your tweet and submit the form
After you’ve copied the link to your tweet, you need to paste it into the “Please provide a link to a public tweet / social media post that includes the wallet address of the OpenSea profile you are requesting verification for.” field.
Next, you need to confirm that the information provided in the application is true and that you’ve accepted OpenSea’s terms of service.
Lastly, tap on “Submit” to submit your application.
After you’ve submitted your application, you need to wait for OpenSea to review it.
According to OpenSea, it’ll take at least 5 business days for them to review your request.
If successful, you’ll get a blue checkmark/tick next to your OpenSea profile or collection (depending on the verification that you’ve applied for).
If you’re not a public figure, it’s very hard to get verified on OpenSea.
This is because blue checkmarks are reserved for collections created by high-profile public figures or organizations.
If you’re not a high-profile public figure or organization, your collection needs to have a trading volume of 100 ETH or more.
In addition, you need to have all collections items revealed.
Even so, it does not guarantee that you’ll get verified.
OpenSea may require you to provide additional information such as draft files of the collection and contact information.
This is to confirm the authenticity of the collection and the individual.
