POAPs are used as a digital proof of a collector's attendance or participation in an event. As such, they can be used for anything where you might want to give exclusive access only to verifiable fans/community members.


Some of the most common use cases for this functionality of POAPs are:

  • Access to exclusive merchandise, such as:

    • Band merch for concert attendees only

    • Ability to purchase new/limited merchandise before the general public

  • Participation in polls, outreach surveys, voting/governance, etc.

For a guide on setting up a POAP.vote poll, please see the article: How Do I Set Up a POAP.vote Poll?

  • Access to exclusive future events, such as:

    • Community hangouts with verified community members only.

  • Discounts for repeat attendees, such as:

    • Attend a conference/concert multiple years in a row? Receive money off of your ticket price for the next events.

    • Free drinks/meals at venues, similar to a punch card.

  • Access to private Discord channels and chat groups

As a collector, keep an eye out for these opportunities as you collect more POAPs. Typically, if there is planned functionality/utility for a POAP like those mentioned above, you will be notified during the drop period.
