Quebec company Scenarex, specializing in the development of publishing solutions with blockchain, has launched the Beta version of its first solution, Bookchain.

Based on the Ethereum network, Bookchain is an online ebook distribution platform that enables authors, publishers and content creators to publish and sell books on the blockchain. Using smart contracts, the Bookchain platform lets users upload their ebooks and set the configuration of the security, traceability, rights attribution and distribution settings, introducing the optional feature of reselling.

Bookchain, the company explains, brings innovation to the publishing industry by providing a flexible, secure way to manage digital books and empowering authors and publishers to alternatively publish their work while controlling its distribution, adding that the platform is built to be “completely cryptocurrency free.”
