A new feature called Profiles has just launched for Xumm Pro users.
This new feature allows users to positively identify themselves on the Xumm platform and easily share selected Xumm accounts publicly.
Xumm Pro users can upload a profile image, choose a unique slug, and fill in their name to enable their unique profile. Examples of fully set up Xumm Profiles can be seen here: https://xumm.me/wietse.
Only KYC'ed users who opt-in to the Xumm early access feature can claim a profile slug.
Xumm Profiles ensure users can trust they're dealing with a real person by preventing imposters/scammers from claiming slugs.
Using the Profiles feature, users can find you (to send you XRP or other assets) with your claimed profile slug, which also works as a PayString and a username for your profile page. PayStrings look like this <my_name>$xumm.me
Profiles bind trust to an XRPL account. The slug, name, and picture can be trusted to belong to a real person because they are matched and verified as belonging to a KYC'ed user (while identity information is kept private).
In the future, Profiles will add features requiring trust, such as account backup & recovery, opening the door to useful features relying on trust & identity.
Overall, the new Xumm Profiles feature is a great way for users to share their accounts with the public and build a sense of identity within the Xumm community.
With more features and improvements on the way, Xumm Pro is quickly becoming the secure and user-friendly go-to platform for any XRPL asset-related transactions.
