Blockchain revolution for the publishing economy
Smart contract blockchain
Publica will be a platform for authors, readers, books of all kinds and the people who make them. And for smart contracts to carry all kinds of transactions and exchanges for the publishing economy. We call our organization Publica in honor of the vocative declension of the Latin word publicum, meaning a person or thing of the people. Derived from populus, people. In some languages like Spanish and Urdu publica means the act of publishing. In others like Arabic it’s more evocative of a republic or democracy versus a king or caliphate.
In English it’s the beginning of publication and in Russian it means the people. When the lines blur between publishers large and small, authors and self-publishers, readers and crowdfunders, artists and scholars, teachers and students, and everyone else interested in books and what becomes of them, of the people emerges as a final immutable line of distinction.
The project wants to make it easier and most importantly cheaper and more profitable for writers to publish and advertise their books. The design of the platform looks very good. They provide a lot of information and data and the team looks like proper people to deliver successfully such platform. Worryingly, a slogan similar to Publica's "Blockchain revolution for publishing industry" has been heard couple of times in other ICO projects, yet there doesn't seem to be much noise about these projects. The question now is, have the others failed because of poor development and marketing or just the idea itself isn't ready to be delivered in this still young blockchain world. The problem is, that there are not yet many mainstream users of blockchain applications and general crypto investors aren't interested to be users of such platforms.
