Mission & Key Concepts

We are building the future of IP management.

Blockchain technology has unlocked powerful new ways to create and trade digital assets. But with this change, it's easier than ever for bad actors to defraud consumers.

We're building tools to protect the community, and make every interaction with a digital asset safe and transparent.

Current Challenges

One of the most common attacks Yakoa sees is people making copies of NFTs and claiming them as their own work

Yakoa provides tools and an indexer that detects copies or infringement probabilities on original NFTs, ranging from direct forgery to partial or stylistic forgery, which will then notify platforms, brands or creators of these fraudulent activities.

The platform identifies an NFT’s first existence across a number of blockchains like Ethereum, Solana, Avalanche, Polygon and more.
