# Verifying on Discord
Note: This is not mandatory; if you don't want to verify you will see all the public channels 😉
We realise this is not super simple but it works and will help make the Discord a better place and unlock relevant channels.
# The journey to enlightenment...
By verifying yourself we can give you more roles and unlock various group and channels
- Go to the channel

- Follow the link to verfiy to the page that allows you to "connect your wallet".
Ensure you are logged into the correct Discord account you use on KO Discord
- Connect your wallet to identify your public key. We never ask for your private key...ever.
- Sign a offchain message (this costs no GAS) and lets the bot link you discord user to your KO account (identified by your public key on Ethereum)
- When it says "Authentication successful you may return to discord" head back to discord's
