Was just thinking about this.
If we had a way on our profile, to have a tab for Biocards (cutout shaped like current medals are), I wonder if there would be a market for Niantic/Ingress to digitalize Ingress agent's Biocards for them, for a set price, then allow other agents to "collect" said Biocards for a set cmu fee. It would help Ingress make money, and give us something fun to do/have.
It could be a potential way for Ingress to monetize Biocards by making them digital for the agents/users.
Might even be something that they could even automate, once the image was first approved by a human (to prevent any negative issues).
Would you pay a couple of bucks to have your Biocard digitalized into an Ingress Medal, so other agents could "collect" it digitally on their Agent Profile?
