Your email and phone number are connected to your blockchain account on Libereka, wherein once you apply to a certain University through the LCASS, the University will need your connected email address to verify the validity of your certificates/documents on the blockchain.

The phone number verification is critical because your phone number will be used to send you your OTP, and access to other security elements such as your blockchain private key and public key.

Your verified phone number and email address will also be shared with Universities where you may have accepted the scholarship on Libereka or have agreed to share your profile anytime in the application phase. This will allow University admissions teams to get in touch with you and process your application.
