Creating NearBooks DAO
- What is NearBooks DAO: It’s a book/magazine publishing community.
NearBooks DAO will be a publishing arm of NEAR. It will publish books, content on a website. (This category includes books, stories, articles, and anthologies written by NEAR members and others from outside the Near Ecosystem.
We have many writers and poets here who have written books and poems, many of which have lately been submitted to an ongoing bounty. We’ll promote and onboard such talented people to the community and other aspiring artists.
We will have our own store on Paras/Mintbase where we can have these books, magazines minted.
The main reason for doing this is that we have a phygital access (a buyer can buy the nft and will get a physical book sent out)
How this works:
Here comes the main fun of working on this project. Since I am already active in this space of books and content publishing, I have access to Amazon Sellers, [https://www.barnesandnoble.com] etc so I can get any books on their system. So a buyer will buy a NFT and we will ship the physical copy of the book to the address. This exclusive offer will be available to the first 100 buyers only. This will create a portal for the new web3 of interested folks to join the NEAR ecosystem. They can buy physical copies and will get direct access to the NFTs and vice-versa.
I have a team of my own and I can manage the entire plan and execution. I have spoken to other publishers as well, but that will come later as we move ahead.
NEARBooks DAO-publishing books in both paperback and digital (ebooks) + as NFTs
We will begin by focusing on authors who are active on the Near Forum. We will begin to onboard new publishing authors to NEAR and take advantage of the benefits of selling on web3.
