Its name is based on the Hebrew phrase "מראה-מקום", which means "a reference". The reason for choosing the name was to indicate its purpose as a central place for locating values, quotes and search results.
The target of MareMakom is to become communal and to be open and independently managed.
Unlike other open communities that are based on donations, MareMakom is currently based on private investments, while later it will be funded by transparent advertisements (advertisements that integrate into the site as a visually distinct text but do not pop up, annoy or hide content).
The site is fully optimized for both desktop computers and mobile devices, and later a mobile app will also be released.
