@louweal Awesome, like old school amazon and kindle? This should hopefully put more money back into creators pockets too?

There are a few in the field such as steemit etc so can you give the main difference between your project and them? as steemit was acquired by Tron so would also have that as competition

Hi :wave:
How are the revenue distributed between writers and the platform?
If it’s a pay per page, should people fill some trx on an account and then it will be deducted or are they going to be deducted from their wallet each time they “turn a page” (which would be very expensive in tx fees :see_no_evil:)?

Greetings louweal! Your project seems to be missing details on the following. Please add them to your project. Thank you!

can everyone be a writer? :person_raising_hand:

Will the platform be built to read out scripts whiles i lie down and listen. Pay to do the hardwork again will be quite tough.

But its a nice concept which will indeed help the content creators. Writers will be making some good bucks with your system.

a very novel idea i’d say

cool concept, just one person did it and it makes it more awesome

Nice concept! We can skip the credits to save some pennies! :joy:

All payments go directly and fully to the writers.

Fictron is only for books, it’s not a social media platform like Steemit

Currently all revenue goes to the writers.
Each book is divided into 50 micro-transactions, which is less than the number pages a real book has on average (the demo books are a bit shorter to make them easier explore).
This approach keeps the total transaction fees relatively low, while it is also easy to use (the TRX is directly transferred from the users’ wallets, no need to ‘pre-pay’ for anything).

Yes everyone can add books :slight_smile:

Cool project, please will the book have an audio version?
If it does how can you cost the number of pages that will be listened to by the subscriber?

Currently you can only read books and not listen to audio books, but adding support for audio books is a awesome idea. I will look into adding audio books! (but that will be released after the hackathon ends, because currently there’s not enough time left to make big changes)
