This is the only place on the internet where I claim my identity. The only accounts I claim are mine are listed here: https://keybase.io/navkast. Only the emails I send from a @navkast.com address are provably mine.
- None of my accounts listed on Keybase are compromised.
- My domain names are still under my control.
- All emails from @navkast.com are mine.

Why this exists
Identity is hard
- Anyone can create a social media profile and use my name and my photo.
- You probably have a Tinder profile without you knowing.
Companies are bad actors
- Nonstop security breaches
- Companies earn billions of dollars a quarter finding and selling your data
And, the law isn't on your side
- KYC/AML requirements are increasing. This make identity theft easier.
- GDPR / CCPA is set up to be easily thwarted.
- Legal fines are cheaper than having good security practices in place (e.g., Equifax hack)
