User Badges

Hey folks,

I‘m not sure if this topic has been brought up before but it seems to me a low hanging fruit which could be implemented easily…

Think about badges like the GH ones for Arctic Vault and others. There could be one for Seed Node operator, Early Adopter, and much more and every badge could be a NFT that could be minted on a ERC721 contract and displayed in Upstream and Web App in the user profile.

Feel free to provide feedback or ideas.



Yeah that’s a cool idea!

Some of us were also thinking of using non-fungibles for proofs of contribution (e.g. I contributed to radicle-upstream). In that scenario when code is anchored, if you contributed to that release, you are sent an ERC721 that is visible on the UI and proves your contribution. cc @Julien @cloudhead

Yep, I like this idea a lot. Made an issue to explore it.

Yeah that sounds great @lftherios! With the anchoring event this should be something that could be implemented fast.
Eventually one thing we would have to discuss is how or better who would mint the ERC721 tokens… we could deploy a ERC721 contract by Radicle or use some of the already known platforms…
IMO I think following the vision of Radicle, I would suggest that this could be something that could play nice with Orgs. Allowing every org to manage their own ERC721 and awarding the contributors or investors, etc.
