Project Details: People are faced with inaccessibility to books, most especially digital books. The need to register, login, geographical location issues, and lot more. Enlighten is built to

  • Allow users Read and Download Books
  • Allow users Add Books to library
  • Allow books to be uploaded to ipfs and minted onchain as NFTs

Project Milestones:

  • Deploying on Enlighten contract.
  • Search feature to get books quickly.
  • Categorizing books for easy accessibility.

Education should always be free but also decentralized without possibility of manipulation like we saw during the pandemic and also with recent gas lighting in what a recession is.

This should work hand in hand with the BTTC in file storage correct?


Hola, es interesante, además es primordial que todo ser humano tenga derecho a poder informarse e investigar por si mismo en plena libertad y decidir si esa información está acorde en sus pensamientos y forma de vivir.

Will users have to pay a fee for downloading books or only the blockchain gasfees?
If yes, where will the benefits go?

Awesome, a lot of projects head straight for Tron and neglect the BTTC storage and also now it’s own blockchain :sunglasses:

Looking forward to watching this project develop :handshake:
