MetaJAX is proud to announce the next step in delivering on its mission to protect and promote exceptional performers, songwriters, composers, and instrumentalists around the globe by producing and broadcasting their high value music and content to the world with empowering technology.
Since March 2020, the MetaJAX team has broadcast more than 200 live-streams, a majority of them in front of a live audience. The artists featured on these shows have collectively earned more than 100 Grammy Awards.
The growing community of jazz and roots fans combined with new programmable technology have given MetaJAX and its artists new life. In the midst of the most challenging times, prolific creativity is opening doors to opportunities that unlock tremendous hidden value. Access to this value has been nearly impossible until now.
JAXblast Events began on April 11, 2021 and are very different from all previous MetaJAX shows in that the music and video elements captured at the show are produced into a portfolio of NFTs available for fans and collectors to purchase, own, and trade. These NFTs are designed to have surprising utility and uses when combined with other features and products.
IN REAL LIFE (IRL), JAXblast music events happen before a live audience primarily at Campus JAX, a very special artist-focused supper club in Newport Beach, CA. Patrons enjoy spectacular sound provided by QSC Pro Audio mixed by the team's professional audio engineers. During the pandemic, these events were held in the socially-distanced event tent located in the establishment's parking lot. Since then, most of the performances have moved back inside to the old-timey vintage restaurant club.
There's nothing stopping you from buying a ticket here and joining us in person. We're right across the street from Orange County's John Wayne Airport.
You can join our performances every Thursday at 6:30PM Pacific in the TokenSmart Discord channel where you can view and listen to the performance live as well as participate in active conversation threads with a global audience.
Often times these experiences are simultaneously produced in the VIRTUAL WORLD (VR) METAVERSE. You can attend these Metaverse events in cool 3D destinations like CryptoVoxels or Decentraland dressed in your best avatar. Here all the club festivities are also hosted by the team from TokenSmart. You'll makes friends and experience exceptional music in a whole new way. Plus, you'll mix it up and share stories with others who are collecting, trading, and growing their NFT collections in a world where almost everything is an NFT.

On April 11, 2021, MetaJAX launched JAXblast1, the first of many in its series of exceptional live music experiences that you witness in real time, along with an in-person audience at our club in Newport Beach, CA. But that's not all. If you like it, and believe in the experience as much as we do, you can own it. You see, MetaJAX is an NFT Broadcast Network. Owning the experience is just one of many cool and nifty features that you just can't find anywhere else.
Our innovative progressive NFTs offer audiences and collectors the opportunity to earn by owning valuable performance captured live in front of live audiences. After committing a Silver NFT to a specific Song for Gold, these NFTs Pair with our $JAX reward tokens. These are progressive in that a collector can redeem 10 NFTs from a lower scarcity tier for 1 NFT from the next tier and stake additional $JAX rewards in the process. This model offers fans who love the artist and music they are experiencing the opportunity to have ownership of that experience and reap $JAX rewards.
6+ songs from each live performance will be selected for post-production and produced into music performance video single NFTS called JAXIUMS. A JAXIUM is a 1 of 1 offering hodlers who earn them the opportunity to participate with up to 40% ownership rights of an entire song from a performance or recording by a favorite artist. These JAXium rewards can be tremendous.
RIFFS and BREVES are event themed NFTs minted with a variety of scarcity classes and acquired in randomized bundles of 3. RIFFS combine event themed visuals with short music clips from the performance. BREVES are event themed visuals without audio included.
A number of custom NFTs will be offered in contests and air dropped as free promotional NFTs encouraging and rewarding participants to share upcoming JAXblast events on their social media and community channels.
TICKET KEY NFTs are the foundation of the MetaJAX Riffs and Breves Bundle System.
A Bundle wraps around 3 randomized Riffs and Breves. Riffs are event themed visual NFTs that include short clips of audio from the JAXblast event and Breves are event themed visual only NFTs without audio.
Each Bundle includes at least 1 Riff and 1 Breve but the 3rd NFT could be either. The scarcity of these individual surprise NFTs is also randomized and pulled according to the scarcity chart (see Riffs and Breves section below).
TICKET KEY NFTs

RIFF NFTs are artistic, visual expressions sync'd with audio memorializing a JAXblast event and valued by fans and collectors. RIFFs together with BREVEs are only distributed in randomized surprise bundles of 3, never individually. They can be acquired individually on secondary markets like OpenSea.
A Bundle wraps around 3 randomized RIFFs and BREVEs.
Each Bundle includes at least 1 RIFF and 1 BREVE but the 3rd NFT could be either. The scarcity of these individual surprise NFTs is also randomized and pulled according to the scarcity chart.
RIFFs include a total of 21 designs created by master visualists including animators, motion graphic artists, editors, illustrators, and photographers. These designs are inspired by the JAXblast event and are sync'd with a short clip of produced audio from the performance. We call these 21 master designs the Genesis NFTs and they are held in the MetaJAX Vault where they will contribute to the long-term accrual of value stored there along with other NFTs that will find residence there. The MetaJAX community will have opportunity to share in this long-term store of value.
These 21 RIFF master designs are randomly minted to a limited supply of 2,400 NFTs with 5 scarcity classes:
ULTRA RARE | 24 RIFFs | 1% of Total Mint
SUPER RARE | 96 RIFFs | 4% of Total Mint
RARE | 480 RIFFs | 20% of Total Mint
UNCOMMON | 768 RIFFs | 32% of Total Mint
COMMON | 1032 RIFFs | 43% of Total Mint

It should be noted, that by many NFT scarcity standards, even the Common NFTs are quite scarce.
PROGRESSIVE NFTs offer collectors the opportunity to participate as owners in the entire performance or recording experience. These are progressive in that a collector can pair $JAX community rewards with their Progressive NFTs and redeem 10 NFTs from a lower scarcity tier for 1 NFT from the next tier. There are 4 possible redemption events with the final JAXIUM redemption representing up to 40% ownership of the actual music video and recording rights. Not only that, but hodlers earn staking rewards all along the way.
This model offers fans who love the artist and music they are experiencing the opportunity to have ownership of that same experience or recording.
At the foundation of the Progressive NFT model is the Silver NFT. There are 1,000 of these NFTs for every song produced from a live performance project or studio recording, + 40% more. In other words, if a project has 6 singles produced it will mint 6,000 + 4,000 Silver NFTs. If a project has 12 singles produced, it will mint 12,000 + 8,000 Silver NFTs. Thus begins the JAXium journey of opportunity for fans and collectors.
Silver NFTs can be won through Dutch Auctions at WhaleStreet.xyz where 100 of these will be auctioned every 8 hours once dropped. Owners of Silver NFTs will have opportunity to "commit" their silver NFT to a specific song from the project, along with 10 $JAX tokens and receive a GOLD NFT for that song.
An owner of 10 Gold NFTs can pair them with 100 $JAX rewards and redeem them for 1 Platinum NFT. Likewise, 10 Platinum NFTs paired with 1,000 $JAX for 1 Palladium NFT, and finally, the 10 Palladium paired with 10,000 $JAX for the 1 of 1 JAXIUM Master NFT. The 10 redeemed NFTs at each level are burned once redeemed, meaning they no longer exist. The $JAX reward tokens that are paired along the way are distributed with 60% returned to the $JAX pool, 20% passed on to the artist(s), 10% to WhalesStreet for operations, and 10% to MetaJAX for administration.
All Progressive NFTs can be traded and sold on secondary markets like OpenSea.
