From a Summit session convo:
In order to make onboarding completely seamless for new Kosmos account users, we could implement account creation directly in akkounts-api, where we will already verify new users enough to justify the tx fees.
This way, there wouldn’t even be a signup step in the first place, but you could then just connect your GitHub account, etc. in your account settings, which the API could then also use to update your profile, with a special permission similar to what hubot can do.
In fact, you don’t even need to know about Kredits at the point of signup, but your Kredits profile can already start earning them for things like bug reports or any other contributions tracked on our own platforms.
