πŸ”΅ Blu (BLU + BLUX)

Blu tokens (BLU, BLUX) reward musicians on who receive Ups, and reward role (Artist, Changer, Guardian) actions.

BLUX, not BLU, will be on in Beta. BLU won't be released until users can be human-verified. After that, both will co-exist.

All users can earn Blu for qualified actions, including posting original creations, Upping content, moderation, and trading in time-pools.

BLU and BLUX are burned for Blu Ups. This form of Ups is recorded separately than Sol Ups, but both are combined to rank charts and determine what music shows up on

Earning πŸ”΅ Blu

BLU/BLUX is paid (1:1) to creators when they earn a Sol Up. cXc Music ( uses the Google account of the Youtube video* to determine which account to pay. A creator MUST link their Google account to their WAX account on-site to receive this payment, and MUST have a youtube video.

BLU is also given for completing role-specific actions, as described in the Mapps paper.

* - There isn't (currently) a way to link Spotify artist accounts, and SoundCloud authors can change their name, so Youtube is the only option.
