I have an account with blockchain.com that I don't use.

Today, I got an email from them saying they were doing a XLM (a crypto currency) airdrop (free tokens) that I needed to finish my identity verification to receive.

So, as all my details were already there, all I needed to do was send them a selfie.

It was the first time in my life someone paid me $25 for a picture of my face 😂

Obviously this is a marketing stunt but $25 for just sending them a picture of my face was pretty cool :)

@hugo and now they can recognise you in all online pictures, cameras, CCTV etc. They can fake identity checks and steal some of your IDs. For that, $25 was dirt cheap


@rigo they already had my pictured ID that I sent them to do a transaction I needed back in the day. So, they already could track me and do all sorts if they wanted to :)
