Additionally, Foamspace is sponsoring this event. We will be on site providing, talks, API developer workshops and an API developer Prize for the hackathon. There have been many fantastic ideas proposed so far that participants want to build, such as prediction markets on challenge outcomes and review layers for points. Please reach out if you plan on participating and want to share your idea or need assistance with the API.

We will also be demoing for the first time at the event progress on the FOAM Plasma chain, time sync and radio usage.


Join us for a talk on the future of blockchain gaming, FOAM will be presenting on the future of location based games. :video_game:

Blockchain and crypto have ushered in an entirely new era for video games, inspiring a paradigm shift from the walled-gardens of triple AAA titles to a decentralized universe where the concept of true item ownership lies at the core. Players now have the opportunity to interact with gameworlds like never before - and this is only the beginning…

Join us for a night of food, drinks & presentations from some of the top teams in the space building out this new universe. We’ll also have a panel moderated by DCG’s VP of Investments, Travis Scher, leads the night.
