Issuer Responsibilities

The Proof of Attendance Protocol is dedicated to preserving memories and creating richer connections. Issuers using the protocol should consider the sustainment and growth of the POAP ecosystem in their typical usage.

Protocol Preservation

  • Responsible issuance is a core responsibility of POAP issuers. Issuers must verify attendance of collectors at events and/or collector eligibility for POAPs. Issuers must also size drops responsibly. For issuers, if your POAP is minted by people who did not share the memory, you no longer have a reliable record of participants. For collectors, your digital collectible now feels less precious. It can ruin the fun for everyone.

Good Citizenship

  • The POAP Community must abide by a mutually agreed upon code of conduct, and should act as good stewards of the technology POAP brings to the world.


  • Memories are humanity’s most valuable asset, and as such, POAP takes their preservation very seriously. These memories must be presented and represented thoughtfully in the production and distribution of collectibles minted with POAP.
