Proof Of Attendance, better know as a POAP in the magic world of web3, is basically your passport to a community. People who attend an event become eligible to claim a unique Token Badge. Claim links are distributed, for example, to anyone who joined a Community Call on Discord. An iconic example is the Bankless NFT Badge for Bankless Premium Subscribers.

Now let's start with creating our own POAP event. Navigate to app.poap.xyz and click "Create new POAP". You will then be able to fill out some metadata, such as the name of the event, dates, description, and the POAP design. You can come back and edit these properties later if need be. You then simply have to reply to the email with the number of codes you would like to generate. You will receive a text file with the number of links you requested and you need to upload this "txt" file on your events page The file contains links in the form of http://POAP.xyz/claim/xxxxxx, that can be handed out however you choose.

Notes:

  • If you do not enter an email address, you will need to make sure you save the edit code, otherwise, you will not be able to edit the event or request codes. You will have to contact the POAP team manually with the event number and edit the code if you wish to be supplied with codes without using email.
  • If you navigate to https://poap.gallery/event/<event number>, you can see some stats and the addresses who claimed the POAP, as well as download a CSV. For example https://poap.gallery/event/xxxx
  • Alternate methods of distribution are possible, contact the POAP team
