Join Our Mission to Transform the Music Industry!
"We believe that music is one of the few mediums that can literally transform life. It can provide solace and comfort to those hurting or in need, joy and excitement to an experience or event, and even has the ability to transcend time and space with the emotional nostalgia that hearing a favorite song can trigger in one’s mind. It’s powerful and magic and we think it’s worthy of our efforts to provide its creators with the ability to be fairly and transparently compensated for their work and talent." - Co-founders Steve Stewart and Robert Menendez

  • Fractional song monetization for artists through Initial Song Offerings (ISO™)
    Social media sharing of both artist and rights-buyers activity and playlists
    Royalty tracking and collection in 137 countries around the world
    Allows fans, rights-buyers and brands to buy rights across a wide variety of songs and playlists

Vezt lets artists choose which portions of their songs to offer for sale to fans, friends, rights-buyers and brands in a monetization process called an Initial Song Offering™ (ISO). On the back-end, Vezt provides tracking and royalty collection on all ownership interests through its blockchain-based smart contract technology. Earnings are received quickly and transparently.

Here’s how an ISO works:
Please see this blog post for details and infographic
  • Artists select a song and choose the ISO date, how much of their rights to raise (ex. $10,000 for 10% of their songwriter rights), and the reversion term (3 years, 5 years, 10 year, or in perpetuity).
    Rights-buyers on the Vezt platform (including fans, music professionals and brands), buy the rights during the ISO. The artist receives the funds immediately.
    The song rights information is encoded on the Vezt blockchain and royalties are collected from both Performing Rights Organizations (“PROs”) in 137 countries around the world and, a service which aggregates digital performance royalties from streaming services such as Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, Pandora, etc. Vezt registers the rights with PROs and digital platforms, and pays them through to artists and rights-buyers.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Please see our full FAQ at

    What is Vezt?
    Vezt is a company building an app-based platform that lets artists offer percentages to the rights of their songs for sale to fans, friends, rights-buyers and brands. Vezt plans to track and collect royalty income via its blockchain-secured, app-based platform starting in Q1 2018.

    Our mission is:
    • To provide artists with an equitable and transparent platform to easily and quickly monetize new or existing songs
      To allow fans, friends, rights-buyers and brands to partner with artists on a song-by-song basis, sharing directly in whole or fractional IP ownership
      To create a true marketplace for songs, where tracking and collection of royalties and licensing income is transparent and in real time
      To deliver to artists the opportunity to make a living from the fruits of their work, without unnecessary impediments that keep them from focusing on what truly matters - their music
      To strengthen the relationship between artists and those that appreciate their music, in a meaningful way, where a true partnership can be formed and mutual benefits derived

    Who does Vezt primarily benefit?
    Vezt primarily benefits three groups:
    • ARTISTS: Any artist can benefit from Vezt. With the ability to finance music creation and collect royalties without unnecessary intermediaries, music creation can become a profitable business again for the artists.
      RIGHTS-BUYERS: Savvy music professionals (producers, A&R, promoters, managers, etc.), institutional rights-buyers (pension funds, mutual funds, etc.), and brands can benefit from a robust song marketplace, where tracking and collection of royalties and licensing income is transparent and in real time.
      MUSIC FANS: United in their love for music on a meaningful level, music fans now can translate their passion into true partnership with artists on a song-by-song basis.

    What is the Vezt's development roadmap and timeline?
    We expect to have a demonstrable prototype in September of 2017, and a fully-functional MVP by the end of Q4 2017.
    • Q3 2017 - Complete back-end and blockchain development and integration
      Q4 2017 - Onboard and white-glove 3 artists through the platform, complete MVP
      Q1 2018 - Beta launch, add selected artists and rights-buyers, product testing and improvements
      Q2 2018 - Release platform to all artists and rights-buyers

    Why is the Token Generating Event only open to non-US purchasers?
    Even though we do not believe the VZT is a security, our legal team has recommended this TGE structure to as an abundance of caution to comply with US securities laws..

    What will the funds raised during the Token Generating Event be used for?
    Funds will be used to further software development (including back-end API and blockchain development and integration, node development and integration), international expansion, marketing and business development, legal and accounting, operational expenses and customer service costs
