That’s it

You’re required to wait for at least 5 days after you’ve requested a verification review on your OpenSea profile.

If the verification is successful then you should get a blue check next to your OpenSea profile or collection.


Closing Remarks.

Although it is hard to get verified if you’re not a public figure but it’s also advisable to give it a shot.

The verification is tough because blue checkmarks are reserved for collections created by high-profile public figures or organizations.

Alternatively, your collection needs to have a trading volume of 100 ETH or more to be considered for verification.

Asides from this, you also need to have all collections items revealed.

Even so, it does not guarantee that you’ll get verified as they may ask you to provide more information to confirm the authenticity of the collection or individual.

That's it on getting verified on OpenSea Market Place.
