Verify Address Ownership process involves verifying the ownership of a smart contract address with the Ethereum address used to create the smart contract, and then link the contract address to the owner's Polygonscan account.
Previously, Polygonscan adopts a signed message method where the owner of the smart contract will need to sign a message claiming ownership of the particular contract for every submission.
The signed message is a security step to ensure only the owner/creator of a contract address can update the token information of the contract itself.
Moving forward, once a user has claimed ownership of a contract address, the user will be able to update their token information and address name tag without needing to sign a new message for future submissions.
The contract owner can verify ownership of multiple addresses under a single Polygonscan's account.
To have an address verified, the user would need :
1. A Polygonscan account
2. To have signed a message once to verified ownership of each address
Features available upon verification of address ownership :
1. Update Token Info
2. Update Address Name Tag / Labels
