By removing the "Only verified" filter on the markets page it is possible to trade any token on Cardano without being verified.
However, verification will give you more visibility and increase the trust of the community. To account for processing each verification manually and to prevent people from spamming requests we require a verification fee of 50 ADA. Additionally tokens that want to be verified have to be registered in the Cardano Token Registry.
Submit a Pull Request to the following repository:
The verification requires the following steps, which are explained in greater detail in the Github repository.
📄 A correct JSON token description of the token 🖼️ An image for the token 💸 A comment, with the transaction id showing you submitted 50 ADA
Note that there are specific minimum requirements to get verified, such as:
🌐 A website 📝 A token description 📊 Tokenomics ✉️ Contact information (e.g., twitter, email)
If you do not know how to implement these, check out our MILK token or contact us.
Upon receiving the verification request, we will perform some due diligence, such as checking the minting policy of the token, to make sure the token can't be rug pulled. Note that this does not imply any legal responsibilities from the team towards verified tokens.
Please note that a token being verified doesn’t guarantee that it will be listed on the featured page. Moreover, the team has the possibility to reject a token during the verification process in which case we will refund you 40 ADA of the verification fee. If you are a charitable project please leave a comment in the pull request and we will consider waving the 50 ada fee.
