FOAM : a Decentralized World Map on Ethereum

Recommended Posts

Centralized mapping services like GPS (owned by the U.S. government and operated by the Air Force) are vulnerable and unreliable according to the FOAM co-founder.

That's the reason why he wanted to create an application using smart contract technology via the Ethereum blockchain. He created FOAM https://foam.space/.


FOAM's solution is to spread the work of cartography among a diffuse network of individual users, who register locations on the FOAM map using a cryptographic technique called proof of location. FOAM is targeting several use cases, from games to supply chain management.

The users will be rewarded in FOAM tokens to motivete them to use the dApp and people will trade those tokens to reward, challenge and vote the accuracy of the newly registered locations.

What ya think about it ? Is a Google Maps on blockchain is of some sort of interest for you ?
