Ever since CryptoKitties was released in November 2017, the concept of non-fungible token has been ingrained in the minds of developers and investors in the crypto community.
Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are unique cryptographic tokens with rarity, authenticity, and ownership secured and guaranteed by blockchain technology.
2019 has been the year that NFTs have gained mainstream attention with large, multinational companies currently developing NFT projects.
Mirosoft’s Azure Heroes
Recently, Mirosoft’s blockchain-based cloud platform, Azure, released its own nonfungible tokens program called “Azure Heroes” with the aim of rewarding its developer community.
Through Azure Heroes, Microsoft is on a mission to empower technical practitioners of all backgrounds.
With that as the objective, it has created a tool to inspire the community to learn, coach and build on Azure while promoting healthy and inclusive behaviour.
