Why are you not using POAPs yet & how to start your own collection?

Proof of Attendance Protocol Tokens, also known as POAP NFTs, is the blockchain alternative to physical mementoes or attendance badges for events, meetings or parties.

If you’ve been roaming the metaverse long enough, chances are that you have seen one of these “magical” QR codes telling you to claim your POAP NFT. And why not? It’s a really cool way for event organizers to reward their guests with free bragging rights.

Each event designs its POAP badges with its own style and some of them are even animated! Take a look at this POAP badge that we distributed in our last event:

POAPs are a nice gift for collectors and members of a community, and because they are just another kind of NFT, you get all the blockchain benefits for free. Your POAP collection will be always there as long as you have access to your Ethereum wallet and in some cases, they can even be used to access exclusive content!

Why should you care?

  • Claiming your POAP in the xDAi network is completely free!
  • It’s a new way to commemorate moments and prove your commitment to a project or cause before it becomes cool!
  • They are indestructible and timeless as long as the blockchain is still running.
  • POAP badges have endless potential! We are just now starting to see what other uses we could give them!

How to claim POAP nfts

  • The first thing you will need is an Ethereum wallet. We recommend using Metamask.
  • Download the POAP app on your smartphone. You can do so in Google Play for Android or the Apple Store for iPhone.
  • Sign in using your Ethereum wallet.
  • Use the secret code to mint your POAP or scan the QR code provided at the event.
  • Profit! 🎉

Our conclusions

To summarize, POAPs are a new way to reward community members that are always there supporting the projects. It’s completely free and provides great benefits!

DNAVerse aligns with the idea of rewarding participation and providing additional value for those who support us, so you can expect us to be using POAP NFTs as attendance badges in our future events and maybe even using some of them to provide some additional value to our community.

If you have any questions about POAP, don’t hesitate to reach out to us on Discord or LinkedIn. We would be more than happy to help.
