Current X Change

Take Control over what you see.

cXc Music uses democratic, geographic and
temporal algorithms to chart music.

Time to love

A media distribution system for the people. For the creators. For forever.

cXc apps use time-released free votes to curate charts and generate currency for creators. 

The revolution will not be televised

Listeners and musicians from your area and around the world will UP (like) your music to grow your exposure from citywide to worldwide.


Welcome to the

Revolution in Information Propagation

Starting with cXc Music

Votes Matter

Local attention leads to worldwide exposure. The people decide what is seen by showing their love in UPs (votes). UPs on a song lead to more exposure on the app. With location-based charts, any small-town act can grow quickly in the town, gaining exposure in wider areas through reputation, not advertising or record deals.


cXc makes mapping applications (Mapps) that display creative content. On the cXc Music Mapp, users can share their music on a global map. On the map dots appear representing the music. Brightness and size of the dots depends on how many UPs their content has received.


Songs on local charts grow to larger charts, cities, states, and nations, like leaves grow to branches, and branches to the trunk of the tree. Each song has equal opportunity to grow on this fractal propagation system.

Triangular Currency System

cXc Mapps use a revolutionary curation system called Purple. Purple is the first system to use granular time-based votes. The system is based on a Smart Media Token called purple (PRP). Sol is time-distributed, and Blue is earned by creators who receive those votes. Blue can be Xchanged PRP, but Sol is free and can't be sent or traded.

New Ma+h

You will see base 12 as an integral part of cXc and Purple. Time units are 5 minutes (12 an hour, 288 a day), and each Sol and Blue chip are worth 288 votes, or 200 in Base-12. Every 12 hours (12x12 time units) users are given 1/2 Sol (12x12 UPs), if they have space to receive it. By using base 12 we are able to easily split a Sol or Blue chip into third, quarter, and half.

How a Mapp works

All cXc applications are Mapps


rise and shine!!

When a user posts content on the Mapp, it shows up at their default location, or a location they specify. The content is then listed immediately on the “Most Recent” display. When the content gets voted UP, it will appear in the Top 12 Chart (and searches ordered “By UPS”). As music gets voted up a local chart, it will start to appear on the Top 12 for larger areas, like cities, states, and worldwide. 


cXc Music (Alpha)

cXc Music is now online! In this early version, you can post your music on the map, share it on Social Media and post any song to Steemit with an auto-generated post! We also have a simplified UPing system that is tied into Steemit’s Ups.

The current Alpha version is missing the full curation system, but all the music posted will be curated when the system goes into place, so post your music now to get to the top of the charts early!!

More Mapps

Connecting the world one Mapp at a time. 

After cXc Music in 2019, Current X Change will release cXc Music starting in 2020.

cXc Media includes cXc Music, cXc Video, cXc Lit (Literature, including Poetry, Opinions, Fiction, Nonfiction, Drama & more), cXc Art (including Photos, Illustrations, Installations, 3d Models, Crafts & more), cXc News, and cXc Games. cXc Media applications operate in a similar way to cXc Music, incorporating Purple and a similar Mapp interface. 

Beyond cXc Media, cXc will release cXc Ideas, cXc Pueblo, and cXc Solutions starting in 2021. These three applications are designed to help save the planet by empowering those who wish to make a positive impact.

All cXc Mapps use Purple, the same mapping system, and incorporate third party content only.


Mapps give content a new life. Mapps allow information and media to propagate with highest benefit to both the creator of content and the consumer. This system of exposure is designed to work flawlessly forever, and to work with third parties, not in competition. 

Even More Mapps

We see many more Mapps in the future. Education, healthcare, community gatherings, solution generation, and any purpose that the principles of sharing applies. The possibilities are endless, as soon anyone will be able to make a Mapp that will be able to integrate into Purple.

The Power of Purple

Meet the Chips

Sol Chip[600]


A Sol is a free votable currency that you spend by UPing content on cXc. Each user can have 1 Sol Chip max, and receives up to 1/2 Sol free every 12 hours.

One Sol is worth 288 UPs.
Blue Chip[600]


Blue is a votable currency earned by creators receiving votes on their content. When a user Sol UPs a song, the creator receives the same value in BLU. 

One Blue is worth 288 UPs.
Purple Icosohedron[600]


Purple is a Steem-based Smart Media Token that bridges the voting system with crypto & FIAT. PRP is traded with BLU, allowing creators to earn and purcasers to vote.

A purple is worth X amount of Blue Chips.

Douglas James Butner

Founder / Chief Visionary
I am the visionary behind Current X Change. On a journey of self discovery, I learned the only way to be my true self was to unconditionally give away the essence of the universe, love. I built this system so that we all can give our love to each other, and build a new world from there.

I love creating in a variety of ways. I am a conscious rapper, prolific fractal and graphic artist, teacher, and geek. I have been designing apps since I was 16, coding and launching a social networking site by myself in PHP/MySQL while still in high school. I also run Aquarius Academy, a project dedicated to helping people open up to universal consciousness.

Seeing the end makes the journey much easier, and experiences as the light have given me the knowledge that all is good and all is love. This message of love has transformed my life and allowed me to focus this love in the biggest and brightest ways I can imagine.

Security / Blockchain / Full Stack Developer
I am a Computer Scientist that seeks to change the world for the better through the proper use of technology. I believe in practicality over purity when it comes to choice of technology; results are the most important thing, and leveraging the right tools is key. My goal is to provide effective and affordable technology services/products that will be reliable for years to come.

My current interests lie in Blockchain, DAG, and other distributed ledger technologies, specifically applied to cyber security.

I have been working with computers since I could remember, and I have been programming since I was 12 years old. This was also when I first discovered Linux, which began the foundation of the skills I have today. My skills were honed further in when I enrolled in a Technical College High School during 10th - 12th grade and subsequently my journey through Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. I am constantly improving and expanding my "bag of tricks" to ensure I stay ahead of the game and am highly driven in doing so. My biggest strengths are my problem solving and leadership skills -- I am able to dive into foreign code-bases with relative ease and architect solutions with well timed execution.

Nicolas Kouri (Collageno)

Graphic Artist / Designer
This knowledge lover explores many branches of science and artistic disciplines. After he created his clothing brand b’ Cray, he started his artistic exploration in digital collage and glitch art. This exploration led him to collective art exhibitions in NY and Regina. He also was part of The Wrong - new digital art biennale in the embassy of Peru and Spain. His works can be found in Making the Cut Vol. 1: The World's Best Collage Artists and in his personal VR gallery on Void Contemporary Art Gallery, app from Google Playstore. He also created the concept “Collageno”, an organic software that integrates art, science, religion and philosophy by an creative investigation about the universe and its parts. This software can be perceived as light or sound, depending on the length of the waves that the art piece propagates. This system can be adopted by any person.
