Gilgamesh is a knowledge-sharing social platform powered by Ethereum smart contracts and blockchain technology. The network shifts the way readers, critics, and authors communicate and connect with one another. Using the Gilgamesh Platform, users can gain and transfer knowledge in a protected environment that encourages widespread learning and education and incentivizes the human race to become more thoughtful and information-centric.
Gilgamesh's purpose is to create a Knowledge-sharing social network platform based on Ethereum Blockchain. Gilgamesh Platform empowers readers, critics, and authors to socially connect and exchange knowledge through a cohesive and engaging user experience, and consume GIL Tokens using Ethereum blockchain technology.
Using the Gilgamesh platform, users can gain and transfer knowledge in a protected environment that encourages widespread learning and education and incentivizes the human race to become more thoughtful and information-centric.
Productive interactions and engagements on the Gilgamesh platform earn users GIL Tokens, on the Ethereum blockchain through smart contracts. They can spend GIL tokens on in-app goods and services, or vote on the governance of the platform.
The platform is a resource for knowledge-seekers to unite and create an organized and infallible outlet that transforms the publishing industry and the way readers interact with one another by using Blockchain technology.
The platform is an accessible, fair market ecosystem that incentivizes readers, critics, authors, and service providers with GIL Tokens in proportion to their contribution through Ethereum smart contracts.
Phase one of the Gilgamesh platform will focus on organically growing user participation through interactive knowledge-sharing and incentives and will meet a need in the market for a social platform that allows readers and participants in the book reading tradition, to share knowledge with one another in an interactive way.
Phase two of the Gilgamesh platform will establish a network that removes the middleman in the publishing industry to garner more financial support for authors and remove the barrier of access for people to transfer and receive information.
The self-publishing platform will replace traditional publishers, the “middleman”, by employing the marketplace power of Ethereum network, blockchain technology, and IPFS.
The Gilgamesh platform shares this vision of transparency and scholarship with a coherent decentralized social media that connects all parties essential in the publishing industry without a centralized structure.
The purpose of the project with examples
The Gilgamesh platform is essentially an open market in which users can socialize, find, buy, review, and discuss books. This gives them direct influence over the publishing industry and allows authors to publish their work directly, giving them full control of their own work.
Through a social app that connects readers, authors, and other knowledgeable people, there’s an incentive to discuss specific chapters, books, and ideas, effectively allowing users to become more knowledgeable and incentivizing them to read more books and embrace new points of view.
The platform also creates an ecosystem that helps service providers aid authors. To do this, it introduces a marketplace of service providers that can get paid for their work. Book cover designers, proofreaders, copy editors, and translators, for example, are all a part of the marketplace.
On the Gilgamesh Platform, authors will be able to browse service providers by rating, type, and fee. Given that they won’t need to partner with publishers to get their books out there, they’ll see higher returns on their work and will be motivated to keep on writing amazing books.
With the use of blockchain technology, the Gilgamesh platform encrypts and stores book contents on IPFS and Ethereum smart contracts, and adds governance to its platform with the use of its own Ethereum-based token, the GIL token.
The GIL token is the platform’s currency that can be used to buy books and ebooks, purchase services from service providers, and to govern the Gilgamesh Platform, as token holders will be able to vote on changes that are to be applied to the platform. Users who meaningfully engage with the platform – by writing a book review, for example – will be rewarded with GIL tokens.
The Gilgamesh platform will be introduced in two phases,
1. Phase One
2. Phase Two
Phase one will deliver the IOS application for the social network platform for users to engage with one another by creating and sharing meaningful content.
Phase two will introduce the self-publishing section of the platform that will give authors and service providers an outlet for safe, secure, and inexpensive book publishing.
