What will we provide?

A blockchain based publishing and reading platform which connect writers directly with their readers with the need of publishers or any reselling agency. ReaderNet allows writers to write, edit, publish and showcase their book directly to readers instead of taking the path which is being followed for centuries now. Readers can buy or rent these books directly from writers buy paying them using READ tokens. Writers save on hefty cuts taken by publishers & listing websites like Amazon, Safari, Bookstore etc.

Mutliple Platforms

Mobile Applications would allow readers to sort, search, rent or buy a book. While reading users will be able to bookmark pages, highlight favorite text or convert them to notes all users can search any text in entire book. Verified owners will also be allowed to rate a book or write a review for a book. Supporting all devices such as iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, Chrome!

READ Tokens

These are ERC-20 based tokens minted on a verified Ethereum Smart Contract. READ function as currency for this platform allowing users to transact without getting into hassles of sharing credit card or bank details with the website. Users would be free to purchase tokens from the exchange of their choice or can be traded or converted using other more popular cryptocurrencies like BTC or ETH.

Creator Portal

An advance multilingual writing tool which allows writers to put their imaginations into text. This portal is a combination of WYSIWYG editor, Doodle Pad and Speechto-text plugin. Along with these utilities portal would also host multiple plugins to allow conversion of any document to RD format (ReaderNet File Format), Convert blogs or article websites to a book or even scan physical copy of a book directly to RD format. Writers can also set additional security settings like – Disable Copy or Print etc.

InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)

IPFS and the Blockchain are a perfect match! You can address large amounts of data with IPFS, and place the immutable, permanent IPFS links into a blockchain transaction. This timestamps and secures your content, without having to put the data on the chain itself. Utilised to create a permanent and decentralized method of storing and sharing files across a network.

Magic of Ethereum Blockchain

Ethereum is a distributed public blockchain network. Although there are some significant technical differences between the two, the most important distinction to note is that Bitcoin and Ethereum differ substantially in purpose and capability. Bitcoin offers one particular application of blockchain technology, a peer to peer electronic cash system that enables online Bitcoin payments. While the Bitcoin blockchain is used to track ownership of digital currency (bitcoins), the Ethereum blockchain focuses on running the programming code of any decentralized application.
