Sikorka is an Ethereum based system that enables smart contracts to be deployed on the spot in the real world. Using Proof Of Presence people's proximity to a location is verified which allows them to interact with smart contracts found around their location.
Ethereum's decentralized smart contract platform is at the core of Sikorka. The blockchain facilitates cryptographically secure transactions and guarantees constant uptime and privacy.
Sikorka has a mobile app in development. You will be able to deploy and interact with smart contracts in real world locations anywhere around the world!
Sikorka was presented at Devcon2, Ethereum's annual developer conference. It was quite well received, signifying that gamification and locations are a really exciting application of blockchain technology.
Using your mobile's phone Camera and an augmented reality interface you can interact with Ethereum. Choose a specific location to deploy a contract and take advantage of the surroundings of your environment to deploy location aware contracts..
Using your current location you can detect contracts in the map around you, select them and interact with them if you find them interesting.
GPS location can be easily spoofed. Prove your location using a combination of input including Lat/Long Pair, challenge question and answer and visual data. That is what we call Proof Of Presence.

Sikorka was announced at the second Ethereum Annual Developer's conference in Shanghai where it was met with considerable enthusiasm.
Integrate the existing demo app with an existing wallet for account management, integrate with an identity management system and utilize the light client. Additionally perform further research into Proof of Presence in order to improve the accuracy of location proving.
Release of an initial version of the Mobile Application for the Android Operating System. If time and funding allows perhaps also port to IOS.
Sikorka should eventually integrate with specialized hardware that would be deployed on location. Such hardware would offer more accurate and tamper-proof verification that a user is indeed present in a location.
