POAP Historical moments

Here is a personal selection of a few historical and captivating POAP events. You can find some more in this topic on the POAP forum. 🌟


On July 16th 2021, XCOPY, one of the most famous crypto artists, launched a gallery in Decentraland. Players who were at the Crash Site during launch were offered the following POAP.

A few months later, the XCOPY POAP was sought after and had great value to collectors. Some malicious actors manipulated the minting system to mint more XCOPY POAPs and sell them. Only a few were bought before the issue was fixed.

The artist designed a beautiful and historical REKT POAP which was given to the unfortunate souls who bought the fraudulently issued POAPs. The disappointed buyers were then really happy to receive such collector piece.


Beacon Chain Genesis Depositor

This iconic POAP was given to true ETH believers who deposited 32 ETH in the beacon chain genesis contract. Beacon Chain introduced proof-of-stake to secure Ethereum. The transition to proof-of-stake will make Ethereum significantly more secure and decentralized!
