Not only that: Keyoxide proofs work for any Mastodon instance and doesn’t need any special approvals or complex integrations on the Mastodon server part. Remember that for Keybase they didn’t want to integrate with small instances or with ones hosting “controversial” content.
(Source: https://keybase.io/blog/keybase-proofs-for-mastodon-and-everyone section “Are there sites you won’t link to?” ).
What’s even better is the fact that proofs live in keys so it’s perfectly possible to verify them offline or via different service — this is truly a decentralized win!
Did I mention that Keyoxide also supports many more services than Keybase? :)
@wiktor I have to look at it in depth because I have seen an example of a website with one of the verified profiles (https://keyoxide.org/EA9F04E561A1D10987E3E2E693D612A9D61C281A) and, from what I see, it shows the primary email and secondary email (if any) of the key, which makes me wonder if it can't be a target for spam.
But I have no idea and I may be missing something.
