All right Goonz fam - long story short, I have discussed with mods on other, smaller NFT projects and I know how to FINALLY get this verified stamp on OpenSea.
This requires a coordinated effort from all the Goonz, which should not be a problem given how strong this community is. Read below to find out how.
What is the true incentive for OpenSea to verify a project ?
Well from a user perspective it is all about identifying the real collection among fake, scam collections. But from OpenSea’s perspective, the benefit of verifying a collection is that they no longer have to deal with scam collections reports. Dealing with user reports suck up their resources when there is too many.
So - how to get verified ?
Easy. We need a coordinated effort from all the goonz to go on OpenSea and regularly report all scam collections, such as :
Next to “Add to Watchlist”, click on the 3 vertical dots and click Report. You will be prompted to put in the link to the real Goonz collection.
Why will this work ?
I have discussed with Jesse about it. He regularly provides a list of fake collections to OpenSea to report them. But the key here is volume. We shall bury them under fake collections reports from everyone in the Goonz fam, so they no longer want to deal with them and are incentivized to verify us.
Have you seen this work elsewhere ?
Yes. I have discussed with Genzee mods, it has worked within 2 weeks of all holders regularly doing reports. I mean, Genzee has 5 times less volume than the Goonz !
How do you propose we organize this ?
Goonz mods involvement is critical here. I have already discussed it with them and suggested I put it here so we can see if we get the community to vouch for this community effort.
I think setting up a timeframe : like 3 weeks. Setting up a dedicated channel in the Discord so we can post all the fake collections to report and getting everyone pumped about the effort. We could incentivize, but tbh getting verified on OS should be enough of an incentive to get everyone involved.
Come on Goonz, everyone is wondering how we can do something to help this project. This takes 5 clicks every other day from everyone for a couple of weeks. Let’s vote for this to prove the Goonz team that we are serious about it and can do it as a community, and then let’s bury OS under fake collection reports until we have this blue stamp !!
