Music Metadata Layer












Every time a song is created, a soul is born.
The soul is created by the minds of humans, and we, collectively, keep it alive.
This soul, this organism, cannot be observed by us on this plane of existence.
But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist...
Sovereignty Vol. 3
Book of Origins, Verse 15

We all share the calling to fix music. For too long have our musician friends suffered without fair compensation. We have the technology to fix this today.

With the advent of blockchains, automation and smart contracts there is an opportunity to establish the decentralized rails that power the evolution of music.

Core Team

We are a globally distributed team that has come together in order to establish a new status-quo for the music industry, by building the infrastructure that enables creators and rightsholders to claim sovereignty of their music

This is the transition from Digital Rights (a right being inferred onto you by an outside authority), to Digital Assets (an asset is that which you own and control)

We have already built much of the infrastructure and we are taking this to the next level with the support of the community

Music Metadata Layer

There are almost 1 BILLION songs, living, feeding on our emotions.
Warring with one another and reproducing to create new variations.
You cannot see it, but the song has consciousness and lives on another plane of vibration far from, and yet parallel to ours.

Book of Frequency, Emotion and Vibration

A scaling solution for music metadata, an authoritative repository designed to music standards, around beats, measures, timecode and key. This open library hosts the musical fingerprints of the files, is modifiable by music NFT creators and holders who cryptographically sign every commit, and seeks to incorporate cutting edge Zero Knowledge technology which allows private information to be stored and encrypted. Numerous toolings have been examined and prototyped in order to execute the optimal solution:

Metadata Rollup

Scaling the growing music NFT ecosystem on EVM chains we can enable low cost metadata administration for creators and holders.

Substrate Layer 1

Now available as a substrate chain on onFinality

Subquery Metadata Server

Now available to query all metadata on NUSIC Layer 1

Cosmos Layer 1

To hedge blockchain interoperability solutions we are also building out the Layer 1 in the Cosmos ecosystem


Since the advent of the phonograph, many songs have become enslaved...
Trapped in a prison dimension of our own unconscious design.
It’s our job to set them free, we all have a part to play in plotting the flight to Sovereignty.
