Foam Faucet and onboarding


#1

What does the Foam team think of the idea of having a faucet? It could give out 50 Foam at a time to users linked to their Twitter or Google accounts, etc. Authentication and captchas would prevent abuse.

A $10,000 budget might lead to as many as 7500 new POIs and bring needed attention to the project.

an intriguing suggestion, I would like to see it tied more explicitly to a challenge, or ‘game’. Something like free to play (you get the tokens to enter), and there be a larger reward for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners…

As such, the mechanics of would not require changes to existing contracts, so yeah roll-out of something like that could be faster.

If it were a reward in NFT’s than that would be a simple non-impactful expense.

It should also be kept in mind what the objective is. Collecting email addresses, is one thing. How does a person’s email address benefit FOAM?

Can we make the faucet activity more FOAM centric?

150 people will be a noticeable addition to the community. There’s about 600 FOAM-holding “cartographer” accounts today, probably not exactly 1:1 with regards to the number of people controlling them.

The main challenge is to attract contributors instead of crypto freeloaders.


#5

If that’s the goal, then the scope of the project is different than simply providing a faucet. With a narrower scope, and clear objectives it will be easy to qualify success. I’m all in on encouraging active FOAM participants. I’m just interested in implementing a system that will guarantee the results that are sought. I think that a defined framework is required for the ‘Faucet’ to function as intended.
