Our Validator Claim Program is to be the way Validators can apply to be more recognizable for current and potential delegators, as well as users and developers, on the Avalanche network.
At launch, we support Alias and Icon visualization in the Validators list, as well as rich information in the Validator Details.
The information involved in the Verification are the following:
Alias: the alias of the individual validator. If a single entity (company, individual) has more than one Validator, this is a great way of differentiating the set. For example, Avascan has two different Validators, so it uses different aliases for them, that coincide with the names used in our delegation campaigns on Twitter and Telegram: 'Lazy' Snorlax and Ditto;
Icon: An image that can represent the Alias, the Manager, or both. It's displayed in square format. For example, for Avascan's Validators, the logo is Avascan's logo. We recommend a SVG or PNG format.
Manager: the entity that manages the Validator. In our case, it's Avascan.
What we don't accept in a claim
Offensive or inappropriate Alias/Manager/Icon
Public people Names (including Alias/Manager/Icon)
Fake information (ex: Managed by Avascan/Avalabs if is not the case)
