How to Join a Token-Gated Discord
Below, we will cover the concept of wallet authentication and token-gated channels, as well as walk you through how to utilize a bot to authenticate your wallet.

What are token-gated channels?

Token-gated channels are private channels that are only visible to NFT holders of a specific collection. Holders must go through a verification process within Discord to authenticate their wallet and verify their official ownership of the NFT.

What is Collab.Land?

Collab.Land is a Discord bot that offers a wallet authentication process, which programmatically manages and rewards roles and access to private, gated channels. This results in a scalable and highly configurable solution for verifying NFT ownership.
To go through this process, a user must connect their wallet to Collab.Land through an embedded message posted by the bot in Discord. Once the user has successfully verified their NFT ownership, Collab.Land automatically grants them access to specific roles and channels within the Discord. If the user ever sells or trades their NFT, Collab.Land is notified and revokes the permissions.

Wallet Authentication Safety

In the next step, we’ll go through the process of authenticating your wallet in Discord using Collab.Land.
But, first, we want to stress the fact that you should never connect your wallet to sites or bots that you don’t trust. You can trust Collab.Land in a reputable server, but any suspicious individual or site that prompts you to connect your wallet should not be trusted. This is an easy way to lose all of the assets in your wallet.

Step 1

First, you’ll want to navigate to the “Verify NFTs” channel within the Discord server. This channel is typically always called this or something very similar.

Step 2

Click the “Let’s go!” button below the embedded Collab.Land message. A custom link will then appear that is only visible to you. Click “Connect Wallet.”
A pop-up will appear confirming that you would like to be redirected to a website. Rest assured, this link is safe. Click “Yep!”

Step 3

The Collab.Land wallet authentication site will then open with a few options for wallet types to connect. Click MetaMask.
You will then be prompted to log into your MetaMask through your browser extension. Enter your password and click “Unlock.”
Collab.Land will have you select which account you’d like to authenticate. Select your desired account and click “Next,” followed by “Connect.”

Step 4

Next, you will be prompted to sign a message within your MetaMask wallet for verification purposes.
Click “Sign Message.”

Step 5

When the signature request appears in MetaMask, click “Sign”, which will complete the verification process.

Step 6

And now, you have successfully authenticated ownership of the NFT within your wallet, which will open up channels for you through a role reward. Congrats!
Collab.Land will ask you to route back to Discord to check on your role status. Please note that this process may take up to two minutes. If it does not work for you, please reach out to the server’s administrative team for support.
Back in Discord, you will see a private message in the “Verify NFTs” channel that confirms the role that has been rewarded to you through authenticating your wallet.
