Microsoft and Enjin Collaborate to Strengthen Developer Community with Azure Heroes Rewards

Non-fungible tokens have become a staple for blockchain and decentralized apps. Now, Microsoft Azure is offering a NFTs in the form of digital badges as a reward for community members. How can users get these digital badges, and what can they do?

  • Microsoft is the creator of Azure Heroes, using the technology offered by Enjin.
  • Users must have an Enjin wallet to receive their digital badges, though the badges can be moved to another Ethereum wallet later.

Enjin is a blockchain gaming project in the cryptocurrency industry, but they’ve recently partnered with Microsoft Azure to take on another venture.

The cloud service recently utilized the tech of Enjin in its new reward system for active members of their online community, which is called Azure Heroes. The announcement explains,

“Microsoft and Enjin have collaborated in a local pilot to create a blockchain based recognition programme. The Azure Heroes badges were created in a number of original and unique designs which have been tokenised into a digital asset on the Ethereum public blockchain.”

As individuals contribute to the community, they are given digital badges, which are non-fungible tokens (NFT). These types of tokens have been used by projects like CryptoKitties and Decentraland, allowing consumers to use the assets within the community.

Consumers will have to submit a request to be considered a “community hero,” which puts them through a vetting process before being selected.

Once selected, a personal QR code will be provided to give the “hero” their digital badge, which is compatible with the Enjin wallet. Though users can later transfer the digital badges to their Ethereum address or even destroy them, they first must download and register for an Enjin wallet as the default destination for the badges.

Along with Azure’s new project with Enjin, the platform also established a partnership with JP Morgan, the largest bank in America, to release a blockchain development kit.
