Keybase

Keybase is a catalog of connected identities that utilizes cryptographic Proofs to link profiles.

Adding QRL address to Keybase

To add your QRL address to your Keybase profile, in the Keybase app click on the Add more identities button, and enter your QRL address. When you click the Authorize button you’ll be presented with a page like this:

keybase qrl authorize

This contains your Signature Hash, a cryptographic Proof, that needs recording in the QRL blockchain using our message transaction type.

The easiest way to achieve this is using the new Keybase tools section of the QRL web wallet at wallet.theqrl.org or the desktop version downloaded from https://theqrl.org or Github
