GTC Staking on your Identity

Build a unique, decentralized online profile by staking your identity!
GTC Staking (Identity Staking) is a mechanism that helps to verify your own identity or authenticate someone else’s by staking GTC.
When you stake GTC through Gitcoin Passport (see the GTC Staking Stamp), it enhances your Trust Bonus score. This mechanism helps Gitcoin defend against Sybil attacks and is another (very effective) step in making our fraud detection efforts more robust during our Grants Rounds.
Once GTC has been staked, the amount will be locked until a few days after the Grants Rounds have concluded. You will need to return to the GTC Staking page to reclaim your staked GTC.
