    @ryan-foamspace thanks for pointing me to this, I saw it before but forgot it
    Are you going to provide options for users how to run you dapp? I mean:
    1. Are you going to upgrade client which allow them to work only with ethereum node? Is it possible in meaning good user experience?
    2. If no, when are you going to open source client and indexer with API? Will be there options to switch backend? (how It works in augur)
      Thanks for the video, Iā€™m personally so existed to start crafting beacons as soon as you will release first DIY guide

    Can someone from the FOAM team DM me? It seems that I have a registered POI that is not showing on my dashboard but that is stuck in the FOAM contract. I have the tx hash but it's not visible on the map so I cannot do anything with it. Think it might be a bug but not sure.
    panekkkk
    @panekkkk
    I think what happened is I registered the same point twice (it was duplicated on chain) but only one shows on the map
    panekkkk
    @panekkkk
    Side note but it would be nice to have a dashboard view that allows you to manage your POIs etc. without having to interact with the map (the map is quite slow atm and doesn't refresh well). Having even a text-based UI (e.g., https://github.com/kayagoban/shadowlands) with a listed view of your POIs that you could manage from there would be great.
    Ryan John King
    @ryan-foamspace
    @panekkkk can you email support@foam.space with the TX hash and we can investigate
    panekkkk
    @panekkkk
    Will do
    Thx
    Daryl
    @Daryllautk
    @panekkkk sent you a couple of emails. Could you check on that? Long story short is your POI is safe and should appear on the Map tomorrow.
    Ryan John King
    @ryan-foamspace
    @panekkkk do you mean something like this?

    Our next community call is coming up this Thur. 2/21 at 12PM est.

    We'll be talking about Dynamic Proof of Location and The GeoPickle - a testing rig consisting of Raspberry Pis and servers that acts as the first real world simulation of zone anchors.

    Join us to learn why this is big step forward for DPOL:

    My friend is having an issue with the challenge that he's worried about - https://discourse.foam.space/t/incorrect-street-numbers-in-barcelona-slowmov-challenge/575

    Are you storing addresses in the IPFS/blockchain? Or you are storing geohash and then getting it from mapbox?

    Igor Line
    @igorline
    How can one verify what was stored on the ipfs?
    Igor Line
    @igorline
    I can do it using Foam API, but is there a way to do it in a decentralized manner?
    Here is the transaction for that point
    you can see in the input data for the point the IPFS hash

    great. tweaked some firewall rules should now be able to hit everything thru gateway.ipfs.io

    @ryan-foamspace
    Will chime in. Its not a UI/UX problem per say, it is Mapbox geocoding if I understand, but Cartographers should put the correct address manually in the field
    Igor Line
    @igorline
    In the UI you can check if the point was set via search input or by clicking on the map and fill in the address introduced by user rather than geocoding it another time from Mapbox
    Or at least warn user that the address has changed from the one that user introduced and expect to submit
    Ryan John King
    @ryan-foamspace
    I don't fully understand. The reason the address would change is if the point was moved, meaning clicked to a new location, from after the time it was filled out but before submission
    Ryan John King
    @ryan-foamspace
    Is the issue that you search for correct address, but when you select the result it autofills in the wrong address?
    If so that was not a known issue prior
    Igor Line
    @igorline

    Steps to reproduce the issue:

    • Search for the address: "Cl Luis Antunez 18"
    • Select the first one located in Barcelona
    • Close search box
    • Click create new POI

    See the incorrect address being filled from geohash

    Ryan John King
    @ryan-foamspace

    If I understand correctly you search for the correct address, but it autofills the card with the wrong address? If so, that is a newly discovered issue that we have not come across before. It is a Mapbox issue and seems that their street address and geocoding systems are not perfectly aligned.

    Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the Cartographer to verify all information before hitting submit ā€“ in this case by doing so the FOAM Map data would be more accurate than what is coming from the Mapbox base map. I will bring this to developer team to see how it can be addressed. One way may be to make more explicit in the card to review the address field.

    Given the documentation around how this occurred, I think it is a good opportunity for token holders to weigh in and vote on the point. If it survives the challenge you could manually remove and re-add ā€“ in any case thanks for bringing this up for discussion and attention to the issue!

    @panekkkk
    @ryan-foamspace Hard to tell exactly what that is but I mean there's no simple interface atm to tell where all my POIs / signals / etc. are. I have to literally find them on the map. Would be great to have an interface where I can interact with them directly without having to hunt for them on the map. The current dashboard shows I have them but I can't click on them and be taken to them or interact with them without going through the map.

    what is parameterization? does it indicccate someone is stakiing to put a data point in the TCR?
    Ryan John King
    @ryan-foamspace
    @panekkkk the list card in the dashboard shows you all points within view. If you zoom out it will show you all points in the world. There are filters in that list card so you can have it display points that are only yours.
    @davekaj you need to stake tokens to add data to the TCR. The parametizer controls the parameters of the TCR like what is the minimum deposit, how long does a challenge last for etc.

    could foam use something like a zk-rollup for on chain data? they seem incredibly powerful constructions.

    TLDR, SNARK based merkle root onchain avoids data availability prob of Plasma

    Hey guys, what's the best option for fetching POIs then fetching their descriptions, titles etc. Was going through the API just having a little trouble getting the information.

    do anybody know how can access the apis and get the number of foam tokens count?
