Partnership to bring powerful Web3 capabilities to digital, mobile, and social media innovation for brands.

LOS ANGELES and JOHANNESBURGAug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Vatom™, a leading Web3 company based in California, today announced its selection as the lead Web3 platform partner of prolific digital agency YONDER. YONDER, a subsidiary of WPP plc, will leverage Vatom’s best-in-class Web3 capabilities to create new value for brands seeking to unlock the power of the burgeoning ownership economy. With this partnership, Vatom will become the core Web3 platform for YONDER’s Immersive Web and Smart NFT service offering

“Having executed several successful projects using the Vatom platform, the decision to fully commit to this partnership was a no-brainer,” said Rick Joubert, CEO of YONDER. “We will continue to integrate Vatom technology into our own tech stack to complement the significant investments we’ve been making in talent and skills development in the Web3 space. YONDER shares Vatom’s unique vision for the future of brand-consumer engagement and value exchange – this has been key to our collaboration to date and lays an important foundation for the future of our partnership,” concluded Rick Joubert.
