The Book Ecosystem of the Future.
An NFT marketplace for buying, reading, and selling eBooks and Audiobooks.
The Book NFT Platform & Exchange

Readers should own the digital goods the eBooks and Audiobooks they buy. Book.io, harnessing the power of the Cardano blockchain as our backbone, will create an NFT marketplace and platform that will forever change digital reading. For the first time, readers will be able to buy eBooks and Audiobooks, earn $BOOK tokens for consuming these works, and sell their NFTs in the secondary market. Publishers and authors, equipped with smart contracts, will earn industry-high royalties for first time sales, and royalties on secondary sales in perpetuity. This entire decentralized network will be validated and secured by Book.io, the next page in the history of books.

01

Readers

Sell your eBooks & Audiobooks back to an open marketplace as soon as you are finished with them – plus earn $BOOK tokens for every page you read!
02

Authors & Publishers

We firmly believe you should receive more. More money, more data, more tools. Quite frankly, you deserve better than Amazon.
03

Decentralized

Cardano, a proof of stake blockchain technology with smart contracts, makes Book.io possible.
More than a Token

In order to build out this entire system correctly with new benefits for readers, publishers, and authors, it takes more than just a cryptocurrency. BOOK.io will reward readers, mint NFTs for authors and publishers, verify reading behavior for educational institutions, and power the secondary marketplace. It is the foundation for the reading dApps and validating transactions.

The Native $BOOK Token
How to get $BOOK Tokens

The Book.io platform and exchange is the first of its kind by using reading to “mine” for tokens. In order to obtain $BOOK tokens, users must purchase NFT books – and then read them. Readers are ONLY rewarded with native $BOOK tokens based on how much they read. The more you read, the more $BOOK you can earn. These Cardano-native tokens are redeemable on the platform to purchase new eBooks and Audiobooks – and also transferrable from the BOOK.io platform to other compatible wallets and crypto exchanges.

Review Our Code

On June 2, 2021, 10 Billion $BOOK Token were minted as native-based Cardano tokens. This is a fixed supply and no more tokens can ever be created. The source for this is available for review at CardanoScan.io at https://bit.ly/3KHA07s.
