Choose your avatar name carefully. It will be inscribed on your passport forever. It does not have to be your real name.
Remember unlike other name services, your name is not subject to availability. Your wallet may already be known by a particular name given by a certain name service. The network passport is not competing with name service providers (e.g. web3 identity). We provide legal power for your identity in the metaverse.
As NFT verified profile pictures could be sold after verification, you may choose the profile pictures to represent you best by holding them in the same wallet as you hold your network passport. In the future when 3D-based avatars are possible we may allow you to attach a real-time capture of your avatar as an additional step of authentication.
We will issue you a NIN, a network identification number, or rather a unique serial number that will be tied to your wallet. This serial number may be used in the future to confer additional rights from the real or metaverse world.
Choose your wallet carefully. Only use a self-hosted wallet that supports ERC-721s, the technical standard for NFTs on Ethereum. We recommend a hardware wallet.
Pay a non-refundable application fee by sending correct amount to the network passport wallet plus gas fees. The wallet address you are sending funds from will be the wallet you will receive your passport as an NFT.
Your passport will never expire.
Your passport will have basic rights that will never be revoked. In fact, we will not be able to revoke them. That is part of the design. Every passport has the same basic rights. Similar to human rights, everyone will have those basic rights.
Please remember that while a network passport has certain basic rights that not even the network can take away from you, we must also protect ourselves from bad actors in the network community. Network passports may be granted certain access levels temporarily or permanently to access different things available on the network.
We may offer to connect your passport to your real world identity. You don't have to do that, but you may want to for certain things that require your real world identity.
Where you are from, the color of your eyes and your age does not matter as much as they do in the real world.
Instead of requiring fingerprints, facial recognition and/ or signatures, your wallet will serve as a cryptographic proof to access the network.
