At META-X Studios, we have 
a genuine love for 
storytelling and community.

We also love NFTs. And the people creating and enjoying NFTs. And animation. Oh, and games. Especially games. And creative people. We really love creative people. So we’re giving their ideas a place to thrive.


We like Bit Butts™

And we cannot lie!

Baby got back and baby gives back!

In partnership with Sir Mix-A-Lot & the Colorectal Cancer Alliance… each of the 6,666 unique derrières has been lovingly hand-sketched, hand-colored & hand-assembled by a legendary team of Hollywood animation artists.
And every Bit Butt minted triggers a contribution to a great cause!

It’s a No-Brainer & grants you “OG” status! 

Here’s what’s in the works!

Sidekick & Eddie

Welcome to Slackerverse.
Where your power is your problem!

Metroville, where the only thing worse than the evil villains is the damage caused by the worst, most pointless, super-powered “heroes” of all time. It’s a unique set of hand-drawn NFTs, a stat-battling game, and an animated series.

Want to sail the digital seas in a rocket galleon looking for crypto treasure?
Yeah, so do we matey.
Welcome to Bit Pirates.

Bit Pirates is an incredible year-round, global, treasure hunt, where the weirdest crew wins, and an “X” marks the hidden crypto!

Meet the team.

TheSocialNorm, Connector Dude
aka “Power Plumber”
Knows everybody. Also calls everybody. Repeatedly. Connecting the effluvial overflow of the entertainment industry. Unclogging crime one drain at a time.

PopConkers, Dad Producer
aka “Drunkenstein”
Former Disney guy (escaped, 2017). Organized, Creative, Grumpy. Everyone’s Dad. The only thing functioning worse than his brain is his liver.

AmandaReckonwith, Artsy Fartsy
aka “Madame Tse-Tse Fly”
Sensible. Intelligent. Productive. Over-sharer. Artistically reorganizes everyone else’s fuck-ups. Puts you to sleep with a mix of toxic venom and trauma dumping.

BrambleFaerie, Hitwoman
aka “Jigsaw Girl”
Charged with holding it all together. Behind schedule. Producer, actor, ivory tower recluse. Fact she is missing a few pieces is not a metaphor.
