## The flipper

In order to encourage certain behaviours within our company we are using a currency called the Flipper. The Flipper is not directly tied to monetary value but instead can be used for different things which you get to choose over time.
The shorthand sign for the Flipper is Fl.

The origin of the choice for the word flipper is the '80's tv show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azEOeTX1LqM

## Earning Flippers

You can earn Fl for a number of things. Some Fl will be gained by everyone for certain group achievements. You can also donate FL to each other to show appreciation.

We will not only allow purchases but also keep track of how many flipper someone has gathered over the years so we can provide incentives based on all time goals.
