POAPs, pronounced “poh-ap”, are a relatively new type of NFT that has been gaining popularity in crypto enthusiast circles, particularly amongst blockchain and crypto event goers. POAPs are typically offered to commemorate online or offline events. They come in the form of ERC-721 tokens that users can claim by entering their Ethereum wallet address.

The collectibles are issued on the xDai chain, an Ethereum side-chain that offers faster transactions and lower fees compared to Ethereum. Like a cryptocurrency or NFT, users can buy and sell POAPs on compatible platforms.

Where Did POAPs Come From?

POAPs were first introduced during ETHDenver 2019, as a way to reward attendees for attending the conference. Because POAPs can be easily created by event organizers, they are featured in many blockchain and crypto events, activities, and campaigns.

Generally, users may need to scan a QR code or click a link to visit the webpage where they can claim their POAP. Users can enter their Ethereum wallet address to successfully claim their reward.
