Following the close of the promotion on Wednesday, dYdX submitted a heavily debated “liveness check” on its facial acknowledgment highlight.
As a component of this particular mission, customers were contacted to perform a "liveness check" via a webcam to confirm their character. Despite this,
it did not go down well with the Ethereum group of people and an inevitable discussion on the security of customers began.
The purpose of the "liveness test" test was to filter photos of customers using a webcam to check whether their image was used to open another record on dYdX.
Stunned by this new element, residents of the local area took to Twitter and other web-based entertainment platforms to communicate their resistance to this new technology in order to confirm the individuality of the customer.
On Friday, dYdX certified that it does not expect customers to provide personal data. It added that cooperation in progress is entirely discretionary and needs to examine the picture to prevent extortion specifically.
Meanwhile, in LivenessCheck's FAQ, dYdX expressed that the component was not required and that any client can use dYdX in any situation, which is awkward in completing a liveability check.
The debate appears to have damaged the platform's position as customers scrutinize its decentralized idea of business. Some customers do not mind withdrawing from the platform and selling their dYdX tokens in any case.
DYDX closed a promotion offering a $25 reward to new customers based on the condition that they set aside a passing installment of $500 or more on the platform.
