A POAP is a unique badge minted to the blockchain, issued as an NFT. Find out if you're eligible for a Polymesh POAP, available to claim for anyone who bridged POLY to POLYX up until March 2022.
If you follow Polymesh on Twitter, you’ve probably seen some posts on Polymesh POAPs floating around.
A POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol) is a unique badge minted to the blockchain, issued as an NFT. Designed to be digital mementos for life experiences, POAPs let collectors build a tapestry of tokenized experiences to prove the places they’ve been, whether virtual or real-world (and earn bragging rights along the way!).
But there’s another compelling reason to collect POAPs: aside from showing off a user’s event participation, POAPs also unlock possibilities for more exclusive engagement.
POAPs have been used by blockchain communities for qualifying airdrops or to offer exclusive perks purely for POAP-holders, and there’s also been talk of using POAPs like a blockchain resumé when hiring into community-driven entities like DAOS (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations).
In the future, Polymesh might also offer exclusive opportunities for community POAP holders, which is why it would be a good idea to begin collecting them!
Currently, Polymesh POAPs are available to claim for anyone who bridged POLY to POLYX through the upgrade bridge before April 2022:
In February 2022, we offered the community a chance to help create our next POAP for February and March Bridgers, for a chance to win 500 POLYX if their design was chosen.
Huge congrats to the winner of the contest @MG_6197!
