The blue verified identity badge next to an artist's name indicates that the original creator of the certificate is the artist themselves or someone authorised by the artist to certify on their behalf. It appears in 3 locations shown below. Only badges which appear in these locations are legitimate.
1. Certificate web view

Who Can Get Verified?
At this time, we are only offering identity verification to selected subscribers. If you're interested in verification, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your account has been verified, the blue verified badge will appear in your Personal Details under Account Settings.
We're working on a solution that would allow all our users to verify their identity. If you feel strongly that verifying your account will benefit the community, then get in touch with us at email@example.com.
What's the Process?
Verisart confirms identity through recognized identity documents (for example, driving license or passport), legal statements and personal contact. This is currently a manual process and may vary depending on the circumstances.
Loss of Verified Status
The display of the blue verified badge is at Verisart's discretion. Accounts may lose their verified status if they violate our Terms of Service, make false claims about certificates, themselves, other artists or users of the system. We may also suspend accounts temporarily or permanently for such violations.
