Badges with Benefits? what's this?

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!

But then....

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!

  preview not available


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 belowHappy 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!

Saviour Essien

Ma please it’s my be wrong to ask this question here through am a bit old in the platform but I’m terms of knowledge am young. How do I join UU? I’m so eager to join but lack ideas on how to apply. 


Tiger Lily

this is the RIGHT place to ask :)

If you are going to ask someone - the best person to ask is me hahahahaa

You are not too late to apply for the ZETA session of UU.   Several people asked if I would extend the deadline for the application.  So it is extended :)

You should join the discord channel right away.  There are rules that you need to read and accept  (make sure you actually take the time to read - and follow the instructions.  Too many people DO NOT read - and then they wonder why they can't answer the questions at the end LOL)

Here is the invitation to the discord :)

that link is only active for 24 hours - so make sure you click on it and follow the rules to enter right away.  When you get through all the rules - you will enter the welcome lounge where people will update your roles to enter the main room :)

That is the application for ZETA.... good luck-  WRITE LIKE YOU ARE TRYING TO IMPRESS US!!! :)


Gotty King

Tiger Lily

Elizabeth V

You,  our dearest @Tiger Lily,  love to give surprises, love to give away prizes and rewards.  And you just don't give rewards just like that,  it has to be special, unique and this one commemorative . I don't know of anyone who will go the extra mile just to give rewards.  You are one of a kind,  just like those minted tokens!!!

Oh, and A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners in the marathon!!! You guys did a marvelous job!!!!


Tiger Lily

hehehe yes - we had to go above and beyond for our winners!!! It is super fun to do things like this for the platform!!!

I'm glad that so many appreciate - it makes it worthwhile to have fun with people who take the time to notice all the hard work!  that's for sure hehehehe

the marathon racers have done so well!   and It has REALLY helped us to see how hard they would work for ZETA!!!  so - very good thing this marathon turned out to be :)


Benazir Ibrahim

victor vickyrich

Hello @tiger Lily,

Awesomely awesome. This is very good and I appreciate your effortry on this. During the marathon,I noticed some changes in the way some users write and I must say it has help so many users too.

To whom the badge is given should truly deserve the win but everyone did well. With more persistency and hardwork, writing skills will be easier and much more readable too.

Thanks for all you do ma'am @tiger Lily. Your kind of love for the platform is the kind that I wish we should all have too. 

I am @victor vickyrich
