Blockchain Publishers Bypass Industry Gatekeepers

Small indie book sellers are finding high-tech ways to reach readers directly.

Why Blockchain publishing technologies?

“As a small publisher, it doesn’t really pay to sit back and allow a few giant centralized players to dictate terms and control the market. Authors have to do everything themselves anyway, even many times after landing deals with established houses. Thanks to today’s technologies, indie micro-publishers can really experiment with what works best for them and their audience, and cut out the middle-man as much as possible.”

“For more conventional buyers,” says the publisher, “we used PublishDrive, which is an aggregator that enables micro-publishers to push their eBook out from a central hub to platforms like Amazon, Apple Books (iTunes), Barnes & Noble, Rakuten Kobo, Scribd, and eventually others, including maybe some Chinese publishing sites.”
