This article may help you to verify your account on TzKT explorer and customize your profile by providing profile name, avatar and social links. Here are some instructions and answers for frequent questions.

Notice, that the alias updating may take up to 72 hours due to the high demand. Initially, alias tool was created for internal use to mark baker addresses and wasn’t intended to be massive. Then we expanded it for startups and NFT platforms, and now it counts a thousands names and spreading via API, but at the moment we decided not to scale it to automatic tool in security and ethic reasons.

Because every alias is publically available on our explorer, and we will always remain meticulous about our projects.

If you have any problems with verification, contact us via contact us on Twitter (opens new window)or Telegram (opens new window).
