Los Angeles, California, October 20, 2017, In this digital age, the written word still retains its high value in the sharing of knowledge and insight. The main players in this arena are: Authors, Readers, Critics and the Publishers. The entire publishing industry is controlled by a handful of huge publishing houses. They control who gets published and at what prices. Sure, any author can self-publish, but that will exclude them from being aided by most agencies, and they will never reach the same potential going solo as if they had played ball with the controlling publishing houses. Well, it looks like that is all about to change, and the publishing houses are not too pleased.
“Gilgamesh” has decided to be proactive and turn everything around. With their brilliantly conceived platform, there is no need for publishers. All the elements of the industry will be represented on the platform without the need for a middleman and their concomitant costs. “Gilgamesh” is going the way of the ICO to raise funds for the operations. This is today’s version of crowdfunding where the token holders become stakeholders and can enjoy the success of the venture. While it is industry specific, it holds a great potential for their GIL Tokens to gain in value. Based on current Pre-ICO interest, numerous industry Analysts are expecting big things to come from this latest ICO.
Industry Analysts not only see huge potential in this platform to reshape the publishing industry, but they also point to the social aspect which is what makes this platform a “game changer”. Imagine, you read a book and can now send the author a message with your feedback, or maybe converse with the critics about the book. Readers can even follow other readers or authors to see what their friends have been reading. Begin a dialog with others on the platform about certain authors, genres or titles to discuss. The idea behind “Gilgamesh” is explained by a company spokesperson: “At its core, Gilgamesh is a self-governing, knowledge-sharing social network platform powered by Ethereum smart contracts, IPFS and blockchain technology to create a secure, fair, and engaging ecosystem that connects readers, critics, authors, and self-publishing service providers to influence the book industry and remove the role of publishers as the middleman between the flow of knowledge from authors to readers.”
As a result, the platform gives readers, critics, and authors an opportunity to control the book market. Authors can break free of a monopolizing business partner (publishers) and gain full control of their work. Gilgamesh creates a level playing field where it doesn’t matter if you have written 3 books or 300, the same resources are available to all Gil Token holders regardless of the amount of tokens held.
Authors can browse the service providers by type, fee, or rating to identify recommended editors, printers, and distributors on the platform. They can directly hire service providers on the Gilgamesh platform and pay for services using GIL tokens. Authors can also use the self-publishing and social platform to create a secure eBook on IPFS & Ethereum smart contracts, register a copyright, or place an in-app advertisement.
