Not too dissimilar to Pokemon Go where people can collect monsters, which could be done via webmention per Tantek Çelik conversation with Ben Werdmüller indiemon brainstorming design starts here: https://chat.indieweb.org/2016-07-14#t1468465361878000 Three actors:

   Venue creators 
   Monster creator
   Monster collectors

This also sounds similar to sticker replies or photo_reply.

  • +1 the UX from a tool like slack is another interesting way to casually recognize somebody. I built a little proof of concept hipchat bot last year that would react to "/props to Greg McVerry for coming up with interesting ways to use badges" to award a "kudos" badgeclass with open badges 2.0 evidence narrative of "for coming up with interesting ways to use badges" -Nate

This same concept could be done as a digital passport for checkins and travel which includes digital passport stamps.
