Scriptarnica

Quality of books, creators and community in the first place.

A decentralized platform for reading, writing, publishing, selling and buying e-books

Why?

Publishing process doesn’t put writers and the quality of their work first

If you include VAT, taxes, wire transfers fees, fees for cashing checks, fees for converting currencies, your royalties get much less than you planned. Additional earning and promotion options often include exclusive selling rights as well. Interaction with readers is hard (and often impossible) before you finish your book, when it gets too late to take their feedback in consideration.

Research-driven reading
is expensive

Reader has to pay for the entire book, even if she doesn’t need everything from it. Being researcher, scientist, journalist can get very expensive if you have to purchase all books which are valid source for your work.

Writer has to wait for a long period of time to get their income

Digital publishing process made it possible for writers to get paid for their work in two months period. The situation used to be much worse – publishing agencies were paying royalties quarterly or twice a year.

Marketplace is centralized
with middle-men

The number of middle-men between writer and reader varies from 4 to 6, indeed money spreads through reader’s bank, going to vendor’s bank and finally sending to writer’s account. It’s even worse when a writer has a contract with a publishing agency, that increases the number of middle-men, reduces the contact between the writer and the reader and slows the process.

Reader wants to contribute to the quality of the book & read it before it’s done

With all the technological advancements that are making our life easier and faster people became used to the transparent processes and want to be involved in the creation of something new. We want everything almost immediately. However, readers have to wait until entire book is released to the market. Also, field-related books often offer chapters which are independent from each other and can serve for students & researchers as part of their extensive literature. Involving readers in the writing process and asking for their feedback and contribution would affect the quality of the book, form the community of readers and help writer to involve them in the ways she needs (for example to recommend a book, or do a proofreading, or translate it to another language).

How Scriptarnica was born
Founder

What I knew is that I needed some killer app example that shows, not just some, but all the good sides of Decentralized Applications; app that could show to anybody why this decentralization paradigm is so big on its own.
