Link your Twitter handle to your domain with Chainlink.

Modified on: Fri, 6 Aug, 2021 at 10:36 AM

You can now ensure your contacts send crypto to you and not somebody else by adding your Twitter handle to your .crypto domain. Chainlink verifies that the Twitter handle belongs to the domain owner and supported wallets and apps show the Twitter handle in their interface. Twitter accounts set as private can’t be verified.



  1. Check if you have $LINK in your wallet. In order to do the verification, you must have at least 1.37 $LINK in the wallet to activate the Oracle and perform the verification. If you don't have $LINK in the wallet, you will need to buy the quantity needed in your preferred centralized or decentralized exchange. The $LINK must be in the wallet storing the domain. If there is not at least 1.37 $LINK in the wallet, you will get an error. After checking if you have enough $LINK in the wallet, you can proceed to the next steps.

  2. From My Domains click on Manage next to the domain name you want to verify.

  3. Click on Verify at the top of the menu bar, then click on Enable Chainlink.

 

  1. You will be asked to sign from the wallet you claimed the domain to, click on MetaMask if you claimed to the Metamask desktop wallet.

For Brave disable the shield for our site and disable DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials in all browsers (if you are using this option).

Verifying on the Opera Wallet [Android]

  • If you have the Opera desktop browser linked to the Opera wallet on Android then disable privacy settings (so the Tweet appears in step 7). 
    Select the "Other Browser Wallet" option when prompted to sign for the transaction. Two signatures will be required and details to set up Opera wallet are available in this guide if you haven’t already done it.

 

For Domains Claimed to Ledger

  • Guest Manage is required if your domain is claimed to a Ledger hardware wallet. In addition to having ETH in your wallet (for the blockchain transactions), you will also require 1.37 LINK tokens when using Guest Manage.
