Index Coop awaiting website distribution approval

  1. 44508

  2. This POAP is being requested for Index Coop to reward community members who interact with us at Permissionless this year.^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author

  3. Permissionless is a large Crypto convention held in FL

  4. I would like to ditribute the POAPs by utilizing your website option. I have requested the website but it has not been approved.

  5. I am not sure why my petition for a website is held. The POAPs to be distributed via the website were approved very fast.

Thanks POAP Team!


Hey @diller

Thanks for the context!
The POAP Curation Body made a negative review of your petition since website is not the appropriate distribution method for your event. Websites are appropriate for small-ish events, in real life, with short-ish mint windows. Usage outside this framework will tend to result in exploitation (farming).

I saw you received a positive review for Mint Links, so you can use the Magic Dispenser.

Here’s the guide on how to set it up: How Do I Set Up the Magic POAP QR Dispenser to Distribute Mint Links Via Unique QR Codes? | POAP Help Center

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

I appreciate your reply. I would like to raise that these distribution methods are very similar, and the main difference is that the website only requires a static image (QR) while the Magic POAP Dispenser is similar but a changing image on a screen. I understand your concern for POAP farming, but this website QR will only be displayed on a physical piece of paper. Assuming someone with ill intent will share the QR on the internet is guess work.

We believe that distributing the POAPs via the website is the easiest and most logical way, in that, our attendees will be able scan the QR code off of a piece of paper at our booth, and mint the POAP themselves.

We will not be able to distribute with the Magic POAP Dispenser because we will not necessarily be able to have someone present and attending to the iphone/ipad sharing the QR codes at all times.

We will figure it out manually. I generally enjoy using POAPs, but you guys can be late to reply and restricting.

Hey @diller

Yes, we’re concerned about the farming issue. If someone takes a picture of the POAP website QR and shares it on their social media, your POAPs are automatically farmed and it’s a problem for the whole POAP ecosystem (collectors, you as an issuer, and us, the Foundation)

Here’s another option to distribute, if you plan to print the Mint Links:
