It links to and verifies cryptographic proofs on profiles you link to it, and it hosts your pgp public key.

Their homepage is actually surprisingly unhelpful at explaining what it does.

Yeah kinda this. The only reason I kinda like keybase is because now I have a bunch keys from people who before hadn't posted their keys anywhere.
