Receiving a credential is a straightforward process. You need to provide the sender with your ENS, DID, social handles, or Ethereum address to receive the credential. Once the credential is sent, you can view it in your Credential Inbox, which is located on the Profile Page.
You have the option to make the credential public or private.
