The BOOK Web3 Platform & Exchange

Currently when you buy an eBook or Audiobook, you do not own it – you only bought a license to view it. And it’s stuck forever on that retailer’s platform. You can never give it away or sell it. Readers deserve to truly own the digital goods they purchase.

Book.io harnesses the power of Web3 technology to make this possible and forever change digital reading. These are not public NFT images of book covers – they are fully Decentralized Encrypted Assets (DEAs). They are the entire book, fully decentralized and living on-chain forever. For the first time ever, readers are now able to buy and truly own their eBooks and Audiobooks and can sell them on secondary marketplaces. Plus, authors and publishers earn royalties on the secondary sales of their books in perpetuity – rewarding creators for their hard work.

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 treatment.
03

Decentralized

Book.io is blockchain agnostic – so creators can choose the chain that works best for them.
Powering True Creator Economy

In order to build out this entire system correctly with new benefits for readers, authors, and publishers, it takes more than just another cryptocurrency. Book.io works directly with major publishing houses to indie authors to help them create a whole new type of digital book. From mass trade editions to ultra-rare collectibles, DEA’s enable a vast array of options.

Native $BOOK Token

The Book.io platform and exchange is the first of its kind by using reading to “mine” for tokens. Launching soon will be our Read-to-Earn model. In order to obtain $BOOK tokens, users must read the books they purchase. Every 4 hours an allotment of tokens will be equally distributed based on how much you read compared to other readers. Read more, earn more. You will be able to use these tokens to purchase new digital books, receive discounts, unlock exclusive features including content-based book clubs. $BOOK will also be required to create new content from the creator side which generates the supply circulation. A fixed supply of 10 Billion $BOOK tokens were created on June 2, 2021 on the Cardano blockchain. Review the genesis code: https://bit.ly/3KHA07s.
