At Uptrennd University, there is no denying that students love their badges. They represent the memory of a hard post they needed to write, or a concept they had to fully grasp, or the silly adventures that we had as a community. Perhaps they bring back a strong memory of a story we wrote in unison, or an imaginary trip we took. Some special badges even are given out only to a small few - where a student's character has shined in the face of adversity.
For whatever reason, their badges all represent something special to each person, and they love to display them with pride, camaraderie and a special fondness for a shared experience.
Our latest event was one where we invited the platform to join in. For the first time, badges were given not just to UU students, but also to the community who dared to embark on a 3 week challenge to write consistently, honor readers, and engage genuinely. This was not just for potential ZETA students, though it was a very KEEN way to pre-evaluate our ZETA potentials. It was also a way for any Trenndian to challenge themselves and have the opportunity to earn prizes.
Since this was the first of its kind, we decided to step up the badge in a special way. Something very commemorative! Something that would last. Something that couldn't be mimicked or copied. Something that was unique, limited and special!
But it had to be something that carried not only the pride of UU on it - but also brought eyes to Uptrennd. Something that was a win for the individual, a win for the team, a win for UU and a win for the platform.
Not sure if you know this about me yet?
It's only good if it's a win/win/win/win situation. haha
Gotta have at least 4 wins!
So... Tomorrow I will announce the final winners of the contest and the winners from all three marathons will be earning these badges. These are very special, and I hope that they wear these with pride!
Something a bit more festive for the occasion.
We had these minted for our winners. They will be transferred to your wallet where you can choose to HODL them :) They will not lose their 1UP redemption amount. They will ALWAYS be redeemable for the amount displayed, and when 1UP goes up in value - your prize rises with it!
Why are you backing them with 1up?
Simple. Because I love Uptrennd, 1UP and believe in our platform. I believe that holding 1up for as long as possible is the best way I can express my support for our token, our platform and our community. Not everyone can afford to HODL - but I'm one that usually can. (though I have to pay my bills too! hehehe)
Do I have to HODL them?
Nope. You can redeem them right now if you like! Just let me know and I will redeem them for the value described on the image above.
How long can I keep them without redeeming them?
Whenever you'd like to redeem them, just say the word. I currently have a separate wallet that is ONLY holding the funds of 1UP for the redemption of these badges, and that 1UP will NEVER be sold. If I were you? I would hold them until the value of 1UP really goes up! Not only does that help Uptrennd and the community- but it helps the value of the token to stay stable for longer, and it also benefits YOU with more value as the 1up token increases. But... you do whatever you like. It's yours!
Can I sell it myself?
You sure can! But I will only redeem the value of the token to the original winner. But if someone else would like to buy this Dynamic Badge from you! Sure - why not?
What about gifting to someone? I have two and I'd like to give one away!
It's yours! Do whatever you like! Just remember that the redemption of 1UP will ONLY be applicable for the original winner of the badge!
How many are minted?
There are only 7 of each minted, so they are very rare. One for each winner, and I minted one for myself of each. I had to have one too - they were just too pretty! hehehehe
Any other questions? Ask below. Happy to give my best shot at answering!
Hope all you racers enjoy this! We worked hard on these and spent a lot of time, energy and money to make this special!!! hehehe Love you all and appreciate your very hard work making our platform shine!
