Minting a POAP using a Secret is a handy distribution method for a variety of situations. This guide will walk you through the process of minting a POAP via a POAP Secret.
Step 1: Download the POAP app
Before attending the event where the Secret will be revealed, make sure you have the POAP app installed on your device. The POAP app is available on both iOS and Android platforms. Once you’ve downloaded the app, open it and go to the settings (gear icon) to set your Ethereum address, ENS, or email as your main account.
Step 2: Attend the event
Make your way to the event where the Secret Word will be shared. Keep in mind that the Secret is typically revealed during a specific, short timeframe. Be attentive and ready!
Step 3: The Secret is announced!
Once the Secret is announced, open the POAP app on your device. You will be directed to your main account’s collection. Tap the “Mint” button in the bottom right corner and select the option “Secret word” from the menu.
An input box will appear. Enter the Secret and tap “Mint.” Keep in mind that Secrets are case-sensitive!
Error example: Secrets are case-sensitive!
Step 4: Play the numbers game!
Now, you will be faced with an engaging mini game designed to ensure that only genuine participants are minting the POAP. In this mini game, you will see a series of numbers on the screen. Your task is to quickly select these numbers in ascending order within the given time limit. You’ll have plenty of time to complete it, but a limited amount of errors is allowed. Focus on picking the right number – no need to rush!
Step 5: Mint the POAP
Congratulations! Once you have successfully completed the mini game, your POAP will be minted. Minting may take a couple of seconds. You can close the window if you don’t want to wait; the POAP will be added to your collection automatically.
Note: Did you fail at the numbers game?
Don’t be discouraged, you can re-enter the Secret and try again! Be sure to put all your focus on making it right this time.
