Hey 1Hive, Tulip and all you degens, I know the start of June feels like it was eons ago when the xCOMB farms went live with a cool party (Thanks @anisoptera ). It’s been a pretty bad shake up since then of the crypto markets in general and xCOMB has plummeted radically with no floor in sight yet! Thanks for the entertaining paper napkin math on where the floor should be @befitsandpiper, @quique, @Carson on the #markets channel.
Now to the point of the post, In the initial adrenalin rush of being a bee-farmer, I asked @Gigadig to help me create a POAP to commemorate the launch and farming of xCOMB for June 21. Gigadig was super helpful and did some magic to produce a simple design for a POAP!
If you have not heard or know what a POAP is, then check them out here: https://poap.xyz/faqs
POAPs are like digital badges that can be issued and stored on the blockchain to a given address. The collection can be viewed anytime when you sign into the following link with your address https://app.poap.xyz/scan
My initial plan on distributing this was to somehow automate the POAP delivery by asking users that had farmed xCOMB to claim it by verifying that they had participated in the xCOMB farms in June 21. I wanted to learn and implement this using eth.build, but due to my lack of technical skills, I realised this was going to be a difficult task. So I approached POAP on their Discord to resolve this and was advised if I can get them a list of all the addresses that should get the POAP, they would organise and do a POAP drop to all the provided addresses .
I asked for help in 1Hive Discord and was glad that @luigy @Jasper and @berj all helped me out. Jasper produced the code that extracted the addresses and I am really thankful to him for spending the time to code it and also explain to be some basics of ‘The Graph’
So enjoy the POAP and hope this will be something that will remind you of good ole times in a couple of years which is like a life time in crypto. At the least it builds up your digital badge library!!
For now there were 1865 addresses included for all the xCOMB farmers up until timestamp 1625097600 which roughly is 2021-07-06 12:07 UTC. If you are a new farmer and missed out, then apologies - you get some you loose some!

Hope to do a pCOMB POAP drop in the near future when i get the time. Will provide an update post when this is done.
