Explainer on the process behind reserving a POAP with an email address
When you reserve a POAP with your email address, you are reserving the right to mint that POAP to an Ethereum wallet/address at a later date. This means that the POAP is not minted to (stored on) the blockchain. The POAP is still yours forever; however, it will not inherit the benefits of the blockchain (immutability, undeniability of ownership, etc.) until it is minted.
