Verify Wallet and Link to Group

To leverage the Collab.Land bot, you will have to link your wallet to your group.

For administrators, this is so your community can use Collab.Land features listed in the Admin Functions section. For members, this is so you can access Airdrops and Token Permissioned Chat.
