Announcing the NYC Blockchain Showcase event at New Lab


For those of you in the New York area please join us for our first event of the year. More speakers to be announced soon.

In this first event, we invited two companies pushing the frontier blockchain to solve problems ranging from fake news to payments without network connection to present alongside our work in Proof of Location. We will hear from:

MakerDAO – a project innovating stablecoins, collateral loans, and decentralized governance with a presentation by head of Business Development Ashleigh Schap

Relevant - a social news reader that values quality over clicks with a presentation by founder Slava Balasanov

FOAM - building decentralized location services to empower a consensus-driven map of the world with a presentation by co-founder Ryan King

This event will be hosted at the New Lab in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a multi-disciplinary technology center, shared workspace and research lab.

Takepart in FOAM's NYC Blockchain Showcase and receive a digital collectible

FOAM is excited to host an NYC blockchain showcase at New Lab with MakerDAO, Relevant and Livepeer.

To celebrate, FOAM is offering a digital collectible (NFT) of the New Lab to everyone who adds a POI in the local area (see image below for the boundary) marked with the tag ‘New Lab Event’ on February 11, 12, and 13. The NFT is created in collaboration with Blockcities.

Hi Daryl, I’m trying to add a POI in the local area but there is no “New Lab Event” tag for selection. Can you help?



We had a slight delay but the tag should be available for use now:
