What is POAP again?

It's a system that event organizers can easily use to distribute attendance crypto-badges to people that show up, a tool for attendees to display and share the badges they have obtained and an open standard for Dapp developers to build on top of.

If you have 5 whole minutes, you can watch @gomox_ar explain POAP at an EthCC Lightning Talk in March 2019

Why would I want to get badges?

Here are some things that could happen when you obtain POAP badges:

  • Collect cool badges
  • Impress your crypto buddies(*)
  • Enter a Lambo giveaway(*)

(*) Results not guaranteed. Any expectations of recognition, prizes, privileges or earnings are your own.

How are POAP badges implemented?

POAP badges are ERC-721 tokens. Once minted, they can be viewed on POAP scan or any NFT-enabled interface (Etherscan, OpenSea) and most mobile wallets.

How do I get badges?

How you actually get the badges depends on the alternative(s) chosen by the event organizer to attest your presence.

Current options include:

Batch delivery of badges
(if you gave a wallet address when you signed up, an organizer can airdrop you a badge)

Manual sending
(an organizer can scan your wallet address and send you a badge on the spot)

Self service claim
(an intranet-only Dapp that is available within the event's WiFi will give you your badge)

How can I use POAP for my event?

POAP is free! It's an open source community initiative.
