Step by Step Process Flow with Screenshots
The following is a step by step flow for attaching a customizable asset to your visitor’s Proof of Presence token. In order to configure customized PoP tokens to your NFTs, you must first log into the Illust publishing flow. Let’s get started….
Step 1 – Content Selection
Select the NFT you would like to anchor to a physical location in the world.
Step 2 – Prep the AR Scene
Prep how your NFT will be displayed in the physical world.
In the second step of the publishing flow, you have the opportunity to add some flare to what will be seen in the augmented reality scene. In this case we opted for the original variation of the NFT but with a slight animation. Simply click on any of the canvases below the photo to change the appearance of the NFT. (Note: face effects are coming soon)
Step 3 – Geofence It
Define the geofence for your piece anywhere in the world. Double click anywhere on the map to place. You can also search in the top right corner of the map for a specifc address of where you would like to create a content geofence aka “PoPspot”.
By unchecking “Show on Map” box you will be making the pin of your geofence invisible on Illust’s “Public Map”. This is helpful for delivering secret content. Be sure to save the link to the piece that is generated at the end of the publishing flow as this link can be used to generate a QR code for an on-site installation such as an NFT Easter Egg Hunt.
The description section is an HTML editor that presents information to users from within the AR scene. Think of this like a little information card at a museum.
The external URL section is often used as a direct link to where a given asset may be for sale.
Step 4 – PoP Config Time
Our system will auto-generate an image for your PoP if you do not choose to configure it. To configure, select the “Edit Details” button.
PoP name – this configures the name of the NFT and will be in the NFT metadata.
Upload Image – This is the URL to the image of the item. Can be just about any type of image (including SVGs, which will be cached into PNGs by OpenSea), and can be IPFS URLs or paths. We recommend using a 350 x 350 image.
PoP Radius – this is the size of the geofence in meters. 10 m is the normal size. Notes geofences are accurate between 5-7 meters.
Click the Publish button and your PoP is now configured to your NFT geofence.
Time to Get PoP’n!
Now that you’ve customized your Proof of Presence token, visitors can claim rich media such as virtual merch, unreleased videos, new music, and really anything you can put your mind to. (Note: PoPs show up on OpenSea and can be sold or traded) Some games on the map will require certain PoPs to be created, more on this in the next couple of months.
