POAPS are here to stay!

Fažana / 22 - 25 / 9 / 2022 / Info

In the last edi­tion of VFF, we intro­duced POAPS, a spe­cial crypto-badges that stand the test of time and will live inside crypto-wal­lets till the end of the inter­net. It has become a new stand­ard in our event, mak­ing your life much nicer, in the new, time-eat­ing digit­al age, leav­ing the WEB2 behind and run­ning towards high­er num­bers of web! So take a step fur­ther and pre­pare yourselves for receiving!

So for start, fol­low these steps and get an Eth­ereum wal­let: A POAP (Proof of Attend­ance Protocol)is a digit­al col­lect­ible (token), known as Non Fun­gible Tokens (NFT). POAP badges have cer­tain fea­tures that when grouped togeth­er with oth­er POAP tokens cre­ate a col­lec­tion. That col­lec­tion can only belong to a par­tic­u­lar human. It is a new way of keep­ing a reli­able record of life exper­i­ences. A POAP col­lec­tion is hence a digit­al rep­res­ent­a­tion of a human indi­vidu­al that doesn’t rely on any typ­ic­al per­son­al iden­ti­fi­able inform­a­tion (PII) like names, gender, nation­al­ity much less pass­port num­bers. More at Poap web­site (To view your POAPs on your device, down­load the PAOP wal­let). To col­lect it, you will need an Eth­ereum wal­let. If you are new to crypto, you can start by cre­at­ing a wal­let with MetaMask.

MetaMask requires that you store your seed phrase in a safe place. It is the only way to recov­er your hold­ings should your device crash or your browser reset. We recom­mend you to write it down. The most com­mon meth­od is to write your 12-word phrase on a piece of paper and store it safely in a place where only you have access. Note: if you lose your seed phrase, MetaMask can’t help you recov­er your wal­let. Nev­er give your seed phrase or your private key(s) to any­one or any site, unless you want them to have full con­trol over your funds. (MetaMask stores the seed phrase, pass­words, and private keys in an encryp­ted format loc­ally on the device where it’s installed, which still makes such wal­let vul­ner­able to pos­sible attacks).
