We recently released FOAM Tools to help network participants validate data, review reputation and, ultimately, accomplish the work that earns them rewards faster.
The FOAM Map has three types of users, explored in further detail here:
- Cartographers - users who add points
- Challengers - users who challenge points
- Voters - users who decide the outcome of challenges
FOAM Tools helps data validators
FOAM Tools is a custom block explorer designed for the Map's Challengers and Voters – the users who meticulously validate data. Reactions from the FOAM community include:
