Online Artist and Designer

Online Arts

Gigaverse’s credentials enable clients, employers, and partners to set clear expectations regarding your work and professional conduct.  Companies and individuals draw from our base of credentialed members when looking for trustworthy employees and partners.

In addition to being showcased on Gigaverse profiles, credentials can be displayed elsewhere online using Credly and Mozilla’s Open Badge infrastructure, both of which are secure and easy to use.

You may earn Gigaverse credentials independently (and for free) by utilizing our peer review-based vetting process. Should you prefer to undergo an expedited vetting process, you may also pay to be reviewed by Gigaverse admins.
