So I like the idea of verifying myself with Keybase, that's awesome! But I just checked your Keybase account and followed these steps myself and I don't see an obvious way to verify that this actually does anything.
You're literally verifying a string that the Keybase-CLI just spit out so no need to post it anywhere and then it doesn't show up on Keybase as a device or anything.
Am I missing something?
@Qantumentangled Not missing anything. Its really a terrible work-around, and probably shouldn't have received that traffic that it did (my post).
@Qantumentangled I think the second way listed is better: 1. Use username.keybase.pub to post a link to mastodon for now and 2. Put that keybase.pub link in bio.
The signed messaged is just an "if you care to verify that I am who I say I am, here is a message to verify".
Completely optional as a temporary solution. Really it was just something to do here while still familiarizing with a new network.
@ryanmaynard Okay :) Makes sense. I'll do that. Thanks!:grin:
