ETH BOOKS IS THE BEST

EthBooks is an e-book store focused on cryptocurrency topics. Publishers are able to upload their work for free in appropriate sections of the store.

Buyers on the other hand can search, review and purchase ebooks related to their subjects of interest.

The EthBooks store will be a one-stop shop for people looking for sufficient, detailed and quality information on various cryptocurrencies.

The platform uses blockchain technology and a personalized token (EBK) based on Ethereum’s smart contract eco-system for transactions on EthBooks.

The store will be web based as well as app based. The app will soon be freely available on Play Store, Apple Store and Windows Store.

EthSquad will also be incorporated, a system built by the EthBooks team to help in protecting published crypto e-books against piracy.

We also plan to introduce our very own EthReader that will deliver the best reading experience.

The price of e-books on EthBooks is decided by the publisher.

Publishers will be entitled to an 85% royalty on each successful sale. EthBooks will make 15% on each e-book sale. This will help in the expansion of EthBooks, marketing and staff remuneration.

According to Statista data on ebooks, a whooping 1.35billion ebooks were sold between 2010 to 2016 in the US alone, with 221million copies sold in 2016.

We are targeting a sizeable market share in every country. With the growing interest in cryptocurrencies, the sale of e-books on EthBooks is bound to explode as more people search for quality information under one roof.

Introduction

In the last few months, the world of cryptocurrecies has become very exciting. Interest in cryptocurrencies has reached an all-time high as people around the globe become aware of the crypto world. Major exchanges have reported exponential growth as thousands of people flock to their platforms. When it comes to the future of money, there is a growing consensus that cryptocurrencies are set to play a major role.

Demand for quality information on cryptocurrencies has soared over the past few months. The thirst for this kind of information can be attributed to the fact that the public has never been able to put their money directly into a technology that has so much potential but is still developing. For example, a technology enthusiast in the 1990s may have foreseen the rise of the internet, but had no way to directly take a stake in the technology. The idea of applying cryptography to the storage and transmission of data is still very new. And the fact that anyone can directly buy the currency that powers these cryptographically secured blockchains is much like the public actually getting a chance to invest in the internet during its infancy.

Google Trends

According to Google Trends, the third week of May saw a record number of Google searches for Bitcoin.

Google Trends refer to the search engine’s public web facility which is based on Google Search. It indicates how frequently a specific search term is entered with respect to aggregate search volumes across different regions and languages worldwide.

This kind of trend shows that virtual currencies are generating more interest than before. In fact, this has reached an all-time peak which is surely an upbeat development taking into account the previous high was during the Mt. Gox drama in 2013. In other words, more and more people are getting to know about crytocurrencies.

The Opportunity

On the other hand, there are enough people who got in early and who possess massive knowledge on cryptocurrencies. This is where EthBooks comes in, the world’s first crypto-centric ebook store that is anonymous and decentralized. The platform uses blockchain technology and a personalized token (EBK) based on Ethereum’s smart contract eco-system for transactions on EthBooks. It is quite interesting that a big margin of interest in digital currencies comes from China, South Korea, Russia, Canada and the United States. Nonetheless, other countries like Australia, India and the United Kingdom are fast catching up. Cryptocurrencies are beginning to obtain a foothold and trends indicate there will be no deceleration anytime soon.

EthBooks Token

EBK Crowdsale

The EBK crowdsale is scheduled to start on 18 st September and end on 20th October or when the hard cap of 42,500 ETH is reached. Whichever comes first.

A maximum of 100,000,000 EBK tokens will ever be generated. A total of 85,000,000 EBK tokens will be sold during the crowdsale. 10,000,000 of those will be kept as reserve. They will be locked up for 2 years. 5,000,000 EBK will be set aside for the bounty program, advisors and supporters. Any remaining/unsold tokens will be burned after the ICO is over.

Example: If 60,000,000 EBK are sold during the ICO, then the remaining 25,000,000 EBK will be burned.

Royalty & Monetization

Publishers will be incentivized with EBK tokens after a successful sale of an ebook. The tokens can be withdrawn to any Ether based wallet and later on traded for Bitcoin, Ethereum and other currencies on major exchanges.

EthSquad Anti-Piracy System

EthSquad is a system built by the EthBooks team to help in protecting published crypto e-books against piracy. e-Books piracy has for long been the most dreadful thing to a publisher. Our aim is to tame piracy through our unique and powerful system.

All submitted ebooks are quickly scanned by EthSquad before going live on EthBooks to ensure they are authentic. The system then stamps the material with a unique digital watermark. EthSquad also helps protect publishers’ content against piracy by scanning over 13 billion online pages and removing the infringing links.
