Redeemable NFTs (POAPs)

POAPs, tickets, and more
Using NFTsMe tools you'll be able to create redeemable NFTs like POAPs, tickets, and more. Combined with SBT (Soulbound Tokens) and Token Gating possibilities are endless!

What are POAP?

POAP is an acronym for "Proof of Attendance Protocol". A POAP NFT is a specific type of NFT that shows you attended an event or experience. While POAP NFTs aren't yet widespread, they're quickly becoming popular.
POAPs are a great way to engage with your community! Use them in lives, Discord, meetings... giving out POAPs to engage with your community members.

Can I transfer POAPs?

Since POAPs are NFTs, they can be traded on various NFT marketplaces as well. However, POAPs are essentially proof of holders’ personal attendance at an event. So, it is up to you, but we encourage to not allow (create Soulbound POAPs). However, you can always check the history of transfer, and know who was the first owner of a POAP, which is the one who was really "attending".
Typically, this unique NFTs (either ERC-721 or ERC-1155) are given out for free to event attendees, which serve as verifiable proof that the holders attended that specific event. You could compare POAPs with a collection of concert tickets, except that they are digital and secured by blockchain technology.

¿How can i create a NFT collection for a POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol)?

To create a collection for that purpose is easy as create a NFT collection. You have two options. Choose the one that is simpler and better for you:
  1. 1.
    Create an "Editions" NFT Collection: You can set an image that represents the event associated with the POAP and specify the number of attendees in the "editions size" field. If the number of attendees increases or decreases, feel free to adjust that number in the NFT collection mint settings. Additionally, you can reserve tokens.
  2. 2.
    Create a "Drops" NFT Collection: Choose this option if you are going to create a personalized NFT for each attendee. You can set a diferent image for each participant. In this mode, you can even assign specific metadata to each attendee. In the future, NFTs2Me will provide you a tool for that.
In both forms you can set the image of the NFT with the image that represents the event. Then, you can include event information such as the event date, event details, etc., in the metadata.

How can I submit the NFT POAP to each attendee?

It as simple as doing an airdrop to the attendees. If they have provided their wallets, or you can ask them for it, you can perform an airdrop to those wallets. If you have chosen option 2, then you can perform the airdrop one by one for each attendee and NFT. Another option is to request them to mint their own NFTs.
If attendees are going to mint themselves their own POAPs, you can create a whitelist with their wallets. Then only the attendees will have access. This is valid for both methods explained.
If attendees are going tho mint the NFTs themselves, you can also establish a maximum number of NFTs per wallet. For instance, 1.
Using this tool (Airdrops) you will be in charge of paying the gas for the transfer transaction. If you want the user to pay the gas fees or claim the NFTs themselves, you can use the whitelist tool with a 0 mint fee. That way the receiver (e.g. airdrop winners or attendees) is the one who have to pay the gas to claim the prize/POAP.
If you don´t want POAPs to be transferred, yo can set the collection as a soulbound collection or disable the option "Transferable NFTs" at the airdrop, converting them to Soulbound NFTs.
