Gilgamesh – Decentralized Knowlegde Sharing Network


The aim of the Gilgamesh project is to establish a truly decentralized knowledge sharing network built using the Ethereum blockchain. This social platform allows for readers and authors to connect in an otherwise never before seen way. Traditionally authors need to have their work published by publishers, diminishing the direct relationship with readers while lowering the author’s revenue. By implementing a wide variety of services, the Gilgamesh Platform allows readers to discuss, review and search for new books to purchase while giving the authors instant feedback. This amplifies the connection between both readers, but also the reader and the author allowing a greater knowledge sharing experience to occur.

The Gilgamesh platform will be of use to many roles in the book- & knowledge industry. Readers, critics, service providers and authors will all have tools available on the platform to execute their specific work. The entire platform revolves around their ERC20 token: Gilgamesh Token (GIL). This token has different features such as being the payment solution on the platform, allowing users to purchase products on the platform such as books, Ebooks, and audiobooks. However, besides being the payment solution of the platform, the Gilgamesh token also encourages users to participate by for example leaving a meaningful review or voting for new features. The Gilgamesh team has made this graphic to further explain in more detail how the entire platform works with GIL.

It’s always important for any type of ICO that the industry they are tackling is of great size. Throughout history books are perhaps one of the greatest inventions of mankind, simply because it allows knowledge to be stored and then later be improved. Therefore, the book-industry has always been a big market and is still today. In recent times as the digitalization of the world has been growing exponentially, books have also become digitalized in the form of ebooks and audiobooks. A truly digitalized & decentralized platform which the Gilgamesh platform is is naturally a great choice to tackle the industry. Here is a preview of what the Gilgamesh platform will look like
