Rhythm Score Update
Every Yat created is a part of a Generation, which indicates the time period in which it was created. It’s a permanent element that will never change so long as your Yat shall live (forever!).
Every single Yat created up until today has a special designation of Generation Zero. And now that we’ve launched publicly, any new Yats created in the near future will be a part of Generation One. With the sunset of Generation Zero and the sunrise of Generation One, another significant evolution will occur: the evolution of Rhythm Score.
Rhythm Score (RS) is a scoring system we’ve developed to help the Yat Creator community better understand the rarity of Yats. The RS is determined primarily by a Yat’s length. Other factors include the popularity of the emojis used in the Yat and the Yat’s pattern (e.g. repeating emojis, “bookend” emojis, etc.).
With the transition to a new Generation, the RS scoring system is also undergoing an evolution. The core elements of RS remain unchanged. However, one underlying dataset has evolved since the launch of Yat in February of 2021: the popularity of emojis. Emojis are a cultural phenomenon, and some emojis take on new meaning over time. As a result, some Yats created in Generation One will have a higher RS than they would have had in Gen Zero, and some will have a lower RS.
Another significant change we want to share is an evolution to the price of Yats. Previously, the price of a Yat was tied directly to its RS. Going forward, we are implementing a more dynamic pricing model. As a result, some Generation One Yats may be more expensive than they would have been in Generation Zero, and some will be less so. However, the vast majority of Yats will continue to be $4 to own forever. Our goal is to make Yat as accessible as possible for all while also acknowledging that some Yats are in far higher demand than others.
Yat is community-driven. We only exist because of you, our Yat Creator community. We want to thank everyone in the Yat community who has been on this journey with us so far and all of the new Yat Creators who are joining our community in Generation One. We are very honored you are here with us, and we cannot wait to see the beautiful Yats you create.
