You may have seen that we have introduced POAP rewards for some of our community events, but what is POAP ?
Proof of Attendance Protocol (POAP) is a new way of keeping a reliable record of life experiences.
Each time they take part on an event, POAP collectors get a unique badge that is supported by a cryptographic record.
These badges are Non Fungible Tokens (NFT) and open a whole new world of possibilities.
I have distributed some POAPs lately and I would like to share with you a quick guide on how to mint them and how to add them in Metamask Mobile App.
In order to mint a POAP you may receive a unique link from either a community member or a Discord Bot. By opening the link you will be redirected to a page that looks like this
Sometimes, on mobile, you may encounter the following issue.
Usually, this happens when you open the link directly in Discord’s “browser”. Reopening the link or trying to copy and paste it in a standalone browser app will fix the issue.
After adding your wallet address and minting the POAP, the transaction will be completed in about 30 seconds. Congrats! You can see your POAP Collection here https://app.poap.xyz/scan
