The Gilgamesh platform is a knowledge-sharing social network powered by the Ethereum blockchain and IPFS that socially connects readers, critics, authors, and service providers, and empowers all users to become more knowledgeable and information-centric through a cohesive and engaging user experience.
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 technologyю
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 selfpublishing platform will replace traditional publishers, the “middleman”, by employing the marketplace power of Ethereum network, blockchain technology, and IPFS. By removing the middleman, society will experience an increase in the flow of knowledge between authors and consumers since more people (authors) will have affordable, unencumbered access to share knowledge, experience, and expertise with readers.
The Gilgamesh platform is named for The Epic of Gilgamesh, conclusively considered the first written story. The Epic of Gilgamesh dates back to 2000 BC, and is written in the Sumerian cuneiform language
