VRJAM is ready to build the future of the entertainment industry through NFTs, the blockchain, and immersive technology.
With their bold entrance in 2021, NFTs have had an impact on almost every industry, ranging from sports and art to travel and gaming. One industry shaping up for the digital revolution is the live entertainment industry, and VRJAM is here to push it to the next level.
VRJAM is an immersive 3D platform to connect artists, labels, venues, and viewers with each other and bridge the gap between live entertainment, gaming, and virtual live events. Digital concerts and virtual events are a core component of the future promises of the metaverse by overcoming the limits of physical space. Imagine being able to attend a famous music event like Glastonbury Festival, Burning Man, or Coachella or enjoy live DJ sets in world-famous venues like London’s Ministry of Sound.
Our aim is to allow artists to monetize their work in new ways, while also providing venues and brands the means to create their own virtual space to host events.
Our Platform – VRJAM Mirrorverse
Our multiverse is a virtual world for creators and fans to come together to enjoy an array of exciting live events. VRJAM has taken NFT technology one step further by combining avatars, virtual live events, and NFTs. VRJAM’s mirrorverse was designed with three key characteristics:
- Creator, entertainment-focused — The VRJAM team is made up of entertainment industry veterans who have previously worked with Grammy award-winning artists and produced blockbuster films. We understand the creative processes of artists and as such, have reduced potential friction onboarding them to a new medium, such as virtual events, as a way to release and magnify the value of their IP.
- Device agnostic — The platform has been designed to eliminate device dependency and operate on any hardware device, including VR and mobile, to captivate the virtual world.
- New NFT asset classes — Our NFT assets, such as concert tickets and digital merchandise, will give users new ways to participate in virtual events.
Benefits for Users
VRJAM has partnered with DJ Mag and EDM.com to establish a community of over 300 high-profile musicians, venues, and record labels who will share in the ownership of our virtual world. We aim to benefit creators and labels, venues, and, most importantly, the retail audience in various ways.
- Creators and labels will have the ability to create and publish virtual concerts and have access to new ways to release and publish music online. We have developed several new ways for brand activation and sponsorship that was previously unheard of. Music creators and labels will have the opportunity to mint and publish new types of NFTs, especially Experience NFTs, for their live events.
- Venues worldwide will no longer be bound by geographical restrictions. From the world’s most recognized venues to your favorite small venue in your hometown, creators will be able to host live events and performances from VRJAM’s creator lineup to generate more revenue for their venue. Venue owners will also be able to sell tokenized shares of their venue, known as Location NFTs, as a way to monetize their brand.
- Retail audiences will benefit the most as people around the world will have the opportunity to see their favorite actors, gamers, singers, or musicians perform inside a rich and immersive virtual world. If your favorite act doesn’t perform in the area you live in, don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of chances to see them perform in the rich virtual world of VRJAM, Enjoy live performances without geographical restrictions!
