There are 2 ways to get FOAM tokens without leaving the FOAM Map: Radar Relay and Uniswap.

Radar Relay

Radar Relay is a wallet-to-wallet token trading platform. 

From your desktop browser, visit the FOAM Map. Make sure you’re logged into your Metamask wallet and it is connected to Main Ethereum Network. You need to have a positive balance of ETH.

Click the ‘Get FOAM’ button at the top right corner of the map. 

Select ‘Radar Relay’ to open the in-app widget.

Enter the amount of FOAM you want to buy.

Make sure the correct wallet address is selected under ‘Payment Method’. You can only change wallets from within the MetaMask menu. 

Press ‘Buy FOAM’ to begin the exchange. 

You need to confirm the transaction in MetaMask. If the notification doesn’t appear automatically, you need to open the MetaMask extension in your browser. 

Verify the total amount and click ‘confirm’ when you’re ready.

The widget will say ‘Processing Order’ and show the estimated time until the transaction is confirmed by the Ethereum network. It could take several minutes.

Your transaction is confirmed when you see ‘Tokens Received’. 

Your FOAM Tokens will appear in your MetaMask wallet. It may take several minutes for your balance of FOAM to be updated on the map. Learn how to make FOAM tokens visible in MetaMask in this article.

Uniswap

Uniswap is a decentralized token exchange that allows you to exchange ETH - the currency of the Ethereum network - and other ERC20 tokens for FOAM tokens.

Click the ‘Get FOAM’ button at the top right corner of the map. 

Select ‘Uniswap’ to open the in-app widget.

Enter the amount of ETH you would like to swap for FOAM or enter the amount of FOAM you would like to receive. You can select another ERC20 token from the drop-down menu by clicking on the arrow next to ETH.

Press ‘Swap’ to begin the exchange. Make sure you only press it once, or you may start multiple transactions.

You need to confirm the transaction in MetaMask. If the notification doesn’t appear automatically, you need to open the MetaMask extension in your browser.
