Not sure what this post is about? Read our previous post about “Get up to $500 Stellar Lumens - XML from Keybase“
Did you join the Up to $500 Keybase.io XLM airdrop and get the ‘Sorry, you are not qualified to join‘ dreadful popup even after fulfilling all requirements?
We gathered all possible solutions to help you get in as a lucky airdropee at Keybase.
Note that Keybase has been fighting constantly to make this airdrop as fair as possible to real people. By doing this they have some ‘hidden’ requirement/deep check features that slowly get noticed by the community why they don’t get in the airdrop yet qualify.
Last month alone the Keybase team banned over 95,000 accounts created by people using bots to get more than once the Keybase XLM airdrop. I can only applaud this action by the Keybase team however this also makes it more troublesome for real people to get in the airdrop.
What did we see as potential issues that make it more difficult to become a lucky airdropee even if you qualify
So you did all that was required but received the ‘Sorry, you are not qualified to join’ message, let’s see below what possible issues could be and how to solve them.
- Using a VoIP service to verify your phone (especially USA seems to have an issue to qualify if they use a VoIP service eg google voice) - Possible solution - Ensure you’re using an actual real phone number from a country in the “approved” list, and it may (or may not!) improve your chances of getting in on the drop.
- Using a prepaid cell phone number (multiple users seem to have this issue at various countries US, UK, Australia) - Possible solution - Try using a landline phone number from a country in the “approved” list, and it may (or may not!) improve your chances of getting in on the drop. Make sure it is not a VoIP service.
- Using a VPN to hide origin country (not confirmed but there are lists of VPNs that are known to be used by people with malicious intent or not, it is known that a lot of US citizens use a VPN to access Binance services or other crypto exchanges) - Possible solution - Don’t hide behind a proxy or VPN especially not if you are from a country in the “approved” list. If you are from a country that is not in the “approved” list and tried to get in by cheating, it’s due to people like you that there are deep checks and make it more troublesome for legit people.
What if you are sure you have not used a VoIP, Prepaid cell phone number, VPN and still not qualified.
Check if your country is listed in the “approved countries” list
The current list of acceptable countries is: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Croatia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Nigeria, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Venezuela.
Note that this list can change anytime so do check the Keybase XLM airdrop page to see if the above is still valid.
Add a few more ‘paper keys’ as a device - some people solved the ‘Sorry, you are not qualified to join’ issue by adding more paper keys.
Just select Devices at your Keybase messenger and select Add a device - Create a paper key
Add more identities, there are more than 304 platforms you can add to your keybase profile to verify your identity, GitHub as mentioned above was one of the previous requirements. You will have higher chances to prove you are a real human and qualify to get the airdrop!
This is so far what we have as possible solutions to get you in as lucky airdropee, we will search for more possible solutions and post them in this post if we find them.
