In S3, the DEGEN team narrowed our focus onto the POAP distribution bot. We released major UX improvements and a Twitter integration with DEGEN 3.0. We received positive feedback from the community and the POAP team. Since the release of 3.0 (three weeks ago) DEGEN
- Managed over 110 successful events
- Delivered more than 30,000 POAPs
- Joined over 90 servers (just 3.0, 2.0 is on 100 servers)
DEGEN has grown across many communities and is managing more events and distributing more POAPs than ever.
The future of DEGEN is bright and we have big plans including:
- A website to with features to manage and promote events
- Integration with other platforms
- Further collaboration with the POAP team
- Direct to wallet POAP delivery
The DEGEN team also collaborated with and supported other BanklessDAO during S3 as detailed below.
In S3, the DEGEN team saw some turnover. We have stabilized and are now looking towards the future.
Our latest release included:

Discord Verification Completed
Now any server can invite DEGEN to join. We were previously limited to 100 servers. Our next milestone is 1000!
- Verification required extensive communication with Discord
- Included a Discord Code Review
- Required retaining even less PII in our database
Support for Bankless DAO Projects

DEGEN Discord Bot Template!
- GitHub - BanklessDAO/degen-template: This is a template to build out discord bots.
- Provides a very quick method to build out new discord bots
- Free and open license template
- Helped kickstart the creation of GovBot

Fought the DISCORD BAN HAMMER
- DEGEN was banned by Discord 3 separate times
- We spun up new bots, debugged the issues and figured it out!
- Our community stuck with us!
- We have been online for more than 3 months with no issues
We want DEGEN to be the best POAP distribution app in web3. This entails a fully customizable UI web app, clearer discord messages, better participation metrics, and an awesome team.
Currently we are a team of two developers working very hard to make all of this possible. We anticipate onboarding new devs and coordinators to help us push DEGEN further.
Some features we plan to complete include:
- Enhance Mad Hatter to work on other discord servers
- Revamp the /poap mint to work with Discord Modals
- Further integrate the official twitter account to announce POAP events
- Integrate the front end with the Discord DEGEN operations
- Integrate BANK token to provide access to premium services
- Wallet command operations
