#44887 - Pillar Community Call - 19/05/2022

Hello Poap team! Do let me know if you need any additional info on this one, will be happy to add anything.

  1. ID: #44887
    Description: Thank you for joining our May 19 Community Call, hope to see you again in the future! Follow our socials to be up to date with everything Pillar!

  2. Community information
    Twitter: https://twitter.com/PillarWallet
    Discord: https://chat.pillar.fi
    Website: https://pillar.fi

  3. Nature of the event
    Rewarding every member that joined our Community call which we host at least once per month.

  4. Distribution plan
    Using our own “POAP website” with a secret word to prevent farmers.

Some additional info:

We’ll be hosting the call over twitter spaces where we will announce the secret word randomly through the call so only active listeners can get a reward. They will need to go to our website poap.pillar.fi (which we’ll announce in the call and post a tweet) where they will input the secret word to gain minting access.

Hey @pillar1

Thanks for the info! Are there any reasons why you’re not using POAP secrets for this meeting?


We’ve been using this format for a while and didn’t have much problems with it. We don’t have a problem doing our own secret word for now, but could be subject to change in the future.

Hey @pillar1

Got it, thanks!
We’re glad you created your own system and that you’re trying to prevent farmers. But we still have some concerns regarding this distribution method. We don’t have a way to check for how long is the mint window open or if the secret word is difficult-to-guess.

For this reason, we suggest using the POAP Secret. Please submit a petition for Secrets following the guidelines:

  • Use a random Secret; don’t use a word that is in the title of your drop. For example, for a drop titled “Isabel’s Birthday at Ahupulco,” a secret word like “WeLovePuppies” is fine, but “IsabelAhupulco” is easy to guess and should not be used.
  • Activate the Secret only at the start of your event and deactivate it as soon as it finishes.
  • Only announce the word verbally (don’t share it by DM or elsewhere online).

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

All the best,
The POAP Curation Body

Thanks for getting back,

Due to the relatively close timeframe, could we stick to the website format and simply limit the active time to 60 minutes (the length of the call) instead? Our users are already familiar with the concepts we’ve used before, we wouldn’t want to confuse them. We’ll also let you know what the secret word is if needs be.

Hope an exception can be made, thanks.

Hey @pillar1

We’ve noticed that some of your past drops were seriously compromised, here are some examples (check out all the addresses with tremendous numbers of POAPs):

That’s why we’re recommending using Secrets.

This has been noted, thanks.

Due to our limited time, we won’t be doing additional request right now. However, we’ll be sure to re-attempt this in the near future.

Thanks for your time.
