The royalties from the project will be "donated" to the community and to associations selected by the community of workers, as part of the company's goal to provide real value in these areas.

An irreplaceable token
Yotfo CEO and founder Tomer Tagrin
: "In order to give back to our community of employees, we have decided to take a step into the new and exciting world of NFT, whose rules are in line with Yotpo's concept. We could not have established society without our people and community. We knew we wanted to bring back something significant with value.
The fact that every employee can buy and trade in digital products and the connection to the brand in complete accordance with the eCommerce world in which we operate, inspired us. We believe we will succeed in developing this initiative into a new equity model, but what is important to us first and foremost is the sense of 'togetherness' - connecting in more channels, doing joint activities and even contributing together - where the future goes and it is an integral part of our company culture.
" NFT (non-fungible token) - a non-fungible token (in Hebrew) is a representation of digital ownership registered on the blockchain, and proof of ownership,Because it is not possible to make fakes on the blockchain.
The NFTs are issued as a limited series, and this is the basis for their value. Today, various works that have made them NFT, are used as part of shaping the digital identity of a person or company. The development of the field may give NFT, which these days is a gateway to the crypto field for many, the same status as ownership notes, taboo registrations and more.
As a company at the forefront of the Web 0.3 revolution and being one of the first to provide audit solutions to eCommerce-based businesses, Yotfo believes that online cryptographic commerce will be a great opportunity for eCommerce brands over the coming year, along with a perception that Yotpo's tasks include The combination of innovation, design and the future of online commerce.
Yotpo's Flamingo NFT symbolizes the qualities of the company's employees and their being prominent and unique in their environment, similar to the tropical bird. The flamingo also symbolizes other values and qualities that the company considers to be of great importance to its employees, including passion for work, high potential, commitment and more.
Unlike the term "unicorn" ("Unicorn") that characterizes the status of "Yotpo", the company sees itself more identified with a stable business model with hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide, rather than with an imaginary animal.
