Build Your On-Chain Rep With UD Profile BadgesJun 02, 2022

Today, we’re adding an exciting new feature to your Unstoppable Domain Profiles: Badges!
With Badges, Unstoppable Domain owners can now showcase a few of their favorite Web3 wallet achievements such as what NFTs projects they’re involved in, how many domains they’ve collected, or cryptos they hold, directly on their public and shareable ud.me profiles pages like ud.me/mvwi.nft.
This feature, which has been activated for all of our already-minted domains, gives people the chance to enhance their Web3 identities and share their crypto story with the world. Before, these stories were written in transaction data and only readable by parsing through transaction logs, which made them difficult to find, read, and understand.
Now, celebrating, re-living, and sharing your crypto story with the world has never been easier.
To start, we’ve created 31 badges based on popular on-chain projects and community suggestions. Over time we plan to add additional ones across more NFT projects, in-app behavior and usage, smart contract creation, blockchain activity, even tiering Badges based on different contributions to a community– and much more.
Sign on now to see which Badges you’ve collected and are featured on your UD Profile. Get rewarded for the contributions and achievements made along your crypto and Web3 journey.
How Badges Work
Badges translate your wallet transactions into achievements. They are assigned to an Unstoppable Domains profile based on their minted wallet’s current or previous on-chain activity - a unique patent-pending mechanism we’re pretty excited about.
Since Badges are issued based on a wallet’s transactions, they’re a super fun and easy way to build your portable, on-chain reputation just by supporting whatever projects interest you.
For instance, our first batch of Badges reflect the most popular projects and key moments in crypto history so you can focus your efforts to gain legit OG status.
Here are some examples:
The vision of Badges is to celebrate the entire, diverse crypto community. New badges will be added so you can reflect on your journey as it evolves in lockstep with crypto, NFT, DAOs, and the rest of the Web3 universe! From NFT marketplaces like Rarible to NFT projects like Alpha Girl Club, the way we can celebrate web3 is infinite.
“The Alpha Girl Club fosters a community founded in a wellness-first approach. Profile Badges are a fun way for our NFT holders to celebrate being part of the club,” said Charles Koh, co-founder of Alpha Girl Club. “We’re excited to see these badges come to life on Unstoppable Domains profile pages, and to watch our community continue to evolve and grow.”
"Rarible is proud to partner with Unstoppable Domains to create our own Profile Badge and enable our marketplace users to celebrate their ownership of NFTs minted on Rarible,” said Adam Ilenich, Head of Community at Rarible. “Through this partnership, we are excited to offer our users an innovative, new way to celebrate their digital identity and honor their membership within the Rarible community.“
And the best part—they’re super easy to share. Just copy and paste your custom Domain Profile link [ud.me/YOURNFTDOMAIN] to your favorite social media channels and bingo-bango, your badges and achievements are front and center for the world to admire.
Creating and Collecting Your Badges
Like all things Unstoppable, UD members are in total control of their Badges and can decide which ones they want to be visible to the public within their Domain Profile.
You can change which Badges are visible with just one click.
Adding new Badges to your profile is completely up to you.
To check and see if you’ve earned new ones, go to your UD profile and hit the “Refresh” button to receive credit for any recent on-chain transactions since your last refresh.
Domain Profiles Updates: Making Domain Profiles More Valuable
In addition, we’ve gone live with a few new product improvements for Domain Profiles.
- Public Humanity Check Verification: First, in the spirit of Badges, if you’ve verified your unique identity via Humanity Check, this verification will now show up on your public profile. Now everyone knows you are not a bot!
- Customizable Domain Profile Banners - We want your Unstoppable Domain Profile to be an extension of yourself, so we’ve given all UD members the ability to upload a custom banner.
- Adding Web2 Link Support - You asked, and we delivered. We want to make sure your Domain Profile represents you as a whole, across both web2 and web3. Feel free to start linking to your web2 personal landing pages as we make the trek towards fully transitioning onto web3.
