Empower your Organization with versatile ERC1155 Badges that can represent any credential or qualification on the blockchain.

Badges are digital credentials representing access, achievements, skills, or knowledge with ERC-1155 tokens. They are a powerful tool for Organizations to recognize and showcase their members' accomplishments and to incentivize learning and growth. With the rise of online education, remote work, and decentralized organizations, Badges have become an increasingly popular way to establish and verify trust and expertise.

Badges can represent anything from completing a course or project, attending an event or conference, or contributing to a community or cause. Badges are unique, tamper-proof, and immutable, providing a secure and trustworthy way to track and verify skills and achievements.

With Badger, you can easily create custom badges, define their properties and criteria, issue and revoke them to your members, and display them on your website or social media. You can also integrate Badges with other tools and platforms to enhance their value and visibility, such as Guild, DeWork, Snapshot, and more.

The following sections will explore how to create, manage, and use badges with the Badger protocol. Whether you are an educator, an employer, a community leader, or a passionate learner, Badges can help unlock new opportunities and the full potential of your Organization.

Creating a Badge

🛑 Permissions required: Owner or Organization Manager.

To get started, you'll need to select an Organization and provide some basic information to help define and identify your Badge within the Badger UI and onchain.

To get started:

Submitting the Organization Form:

  • Name* You can make it anything!

  • Description* A short text description.

  • Image* If a picture is not provided, one is automatically generated based on your Organization's metadata and the Badge being created.

  • Account Bound Determines whether or not a holder can transfer their tokens.

Using a Badge

✅ Permissions required: Anyone can integrate Badge credentials into external tools even if they are not a Member of that Organization or Badge.

With your Organization and Badge created, you can use them in any tool you choose. Built as ERC-1155s, the list of supported tools is long and will continue growing as the established standard grows in adoption.

In combination with the Ethereum Address of your Organization, you will use specific IDs to denote specific groups of individuals and permissions.

To find the ID of a Badge:

Editing a Badge

🛑 Permissions required: Owner, Organization Manager or Badge Manager.

You can easily edit the fields in your Badge settings if you need to change your Badge information.

To make changes:

Some fields, such as the Badge name and description, are required and cannot be deleted. Any changes you make to your Badge will be updated on the blockchain and displayed on aggregators. Remember to make changes when necessary and verify that your changes are accurate before saving.

Archiving a Badge

🛑 Permissions required: Owner, Organization Manager or Badge Manager.

Times often change, and digital Organizations experience that more rapidly than other types due to the usage of immutable primitives. Badger is prepared for that, though.

When the operational period of a Badge has concluded, it can be archived. When a Badge is archived, it will no longer show on the Badger web application.

To archive a Badge:

It is important to note that archiving a Badge is only an interface change and does not prevent the actions of Managers or revoke already distributed Badges.
