14,047 Views
Publica aims to bring the publishing economy into the blockchain revolution. Publica's platform will host book crowdfunding, online marketplaces (ecommerce), apps, ereaders and ewriters doing double-duty as digital wallets. READ tokens represent books you own so they’re property backed by the blockchain. Smart contracts and RIGHT tokens will back the automated performance of agreements like derivative rights for movies, games, sequels etc. Publica’s ecosystem is the multi-sided economy of publishing including service-providers like illustrators, editors, marketers, retailers etc., so they can benefit from the platform’s network effects.

PBL Initial Coin Offering (ICO)
Sometimes called a token launch, Publica will offer its PBL digital tokens in a crowd sale. PBL is the currency to be used in Publica’s ecosystem. Proceeds from the token launch will fund the development depicted on this roadmap as well as Publica’s Treasury for funding new books and other economic utilities.
End-to-end demonstration of Book ICO and READ token system
Publica’s first development project will demonstrate the user experiences and platform systems that enable the public to crowdfund books. A book’s crowdfunding event is provisionally called a Book ICO and people who join it buy READ tokens that also enable them to read the book later.
Inaugural book(s), ereader apps and token exchange
This is Publica’s public debut of the first books to be produced on Publica’s platform, the apps that read them, and the exchange that allows people to exchange PBL for other currencies as well as exchange READ tokens.
Services Marketplace & Community Management
Everyone in the publishing economy can offer their services in book production, marketing, and retailing, sort of like the initial version of Alibaba that connected factories and buyers. Publica’s community managers will lead a service-providers marketplace that includes literary editors, scholarly editors, scientific editors, peer reviewers, copy editors, proofreaders, illustrators, cover artists, book agents, institutions, patrons, critics, social media, advertising creatives, book marketers, book packagers, printers, warehousers, shippers, bookstore owners, teachers, librarians, and yes, readers too.
Print-On-Demand services
Because READ tokens are property, some of them will include the right to print a paper copy of the book. Publica’s community managers will organize a network of printers-on-demand to bring that idea to fruition.
Milestone number of books delivered and WIP
Publica will celebrate a milestone number of books delivered and works-in-progress. This event will raise awareness of Publica’s effectiveness as a platform for the publishing economy and accelerate its network effects for the public-at-large.
Devices available
Publica will develop a supply chain for devices supporting Publica’s ereader apps doing double-duty as a digital wallet device. In the publishing ecosystem, ewriters will be just as valuable if not more so. Readers, editors, proofreaders, illustrators, cover artists, advertising creatives, printers, teachers and others will benefit from being able to make their notes on the page. Sort of like a Google Docs for publishing with rights managed by Publica’s platform because it’s ecommerce.
RIGHTS token system
In addition to books’ READ tokens, the publishing economy also needs tokens to carry their intrinsic value further into derivatives like movies, games, sequels, and prequels, i.e., just about anything that can be derived from a book or story. RIGHTS tokens are subject to a legal framework that Publica is dedicated to working out with the appropriate jurisdictions and standards bodies. RIGHTS tokens will also be managed in smart contracts on the blockchain.

Dafi Protocol
All decentralized economies distribute tokens to users. The problem is that distributing tokens when adoption is low, creates an excess supply & devalues the economy. There is no link between the release of network supply and the network's adoption. This harms longer-term users and only favours short-term participants. Dafi introduces the first alternative since Bitcoin, to use network rewards for building a decentralized economy. Instead of directly issuing tokens for staking & liquidity – Dafi ties synthetics to each network's adoption. This means that the token release & network demand is proportional. Meaning users are still incentivized when adoption is low, but by being rewarded later, not earlier. By linking these two factors, it attracts longer-term users to be incentivized longer, supporting adoption. Dafi enables every protocol and platform to create a synthetic flavour from their native token. This is then algorithmically pegged to the demand of their network and distributed to users. Synthetic dTokens on Dafi can be created by projects and distributed to their users for Staking, Nodes, Liquidity, or even Participation/Bounty rewards. Individuals can stake the DAFI token for governance and collateralize the creation of dDAFI, the first synthetic unit which is tied to network demand. The quantity of the synthetic can increase only as network adoption rises – incentivizing longer-term users.
