The Vision “Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.” -Barbara Tuchman
The exponential frequency at which newly generated content is on the internet is astounding and serves as a reminder of how intricate and delicate the relationship between content developers and their audience is. Every second, millions of pieces of content are both created and consumed across various networks with limited amounts of interoperability. There’s both a lack of an epicenter and connectivity among platforms and audiences. As time goes on and as more individuals adopt emerging technologies, the ecosystem is expected to continue to expand and experience a form of scattering. Publishing content online grants content creators access to a broad and distributed international audience. The problem is, how can the success of a content creator be accurately measured against the masterful content they create while buried amongst the clamor? Blockchain technology has become a popular commodity in the attention economy due to its ability to remove a growing inequality between hosting services and content providers. Curators and artists are left fending for themselves while larger corporations bury them under the noise and benefit from their backbreaking. As a videographer or a writer pours their soul into their masterpiece, the vessels in which their content is delivered are plagued with gatekeepers that wish to strip them of what they’re rightfully owed.
At iShook, our goal is to connect content creators and audiences while leveraging the blockchain technology and of course to ensure rich content is delivered to end users. What began as a vision and successful platform that enables publishers and booksellers to distribute their works to millions of users are seeking to break those limits and move to all forms of content. iShook will be a refuge for all inspired content creators seeking a platform, a community - a home. This is the revitalized content economy - this is iShook.
A Growing Content Ecosystem “He who learns but does not think is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.” -Confucius
Though the 21st century has seen technological innovation at exponential rates unseen by any prior generation, it has brought with it a breakdown of brand communications and authorial reach. General information has become ubiquitous, but how it is accessed have become overbearing, overwhelming, and more often than not end up diluting messages. Almost every second, millions of likes occur on Facebook, thousands of tweets occur on Twitter, millions of likes occur on Instagram, and hundreds of hours of videos regularly uploaded to YouTube. With billions of users spread across dozens of social networks, these types of numbers don’t come as a surprise. Content consumers have a tough time connecting with content creators due to a lack of proper targeting, especially concerning authors and readers.
1. Ecosystem Problems “If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.” -Bruce Lee On the authorial end, authors are considerably spread thin between writing, distribution networks, and social networks for their promotions. Self-publishing and the establishing of “hybrid-authors” have become commonplace in this new form of content economy. Part of promoting one’s work involves targeted metrics which might be difficult to measure when accurately gauging an audience. Social media networks not only contain non-readers but advertising solutions that may be costly, even though they’re not targeting the right individuals. Monetization is also a significant pitfall for content creators, as they grapple with multiple platform inputs for royalties, and outputs for advertisements and promotions. As the negative environment of traditional publishing slowly shifted towards electronic publishing, content creators still struggle finding reasonable, easy-to-manage monetary outputs to keep doing what they love.
On the user end, readers are plagued with a multitude of management channels that exist to handle the exponentially growing amount of content and information that exists. Individuals are buried beneath the tumult, and both content creators and consumers can’t seem to find the right ecosystem to manage all of their needs.
2. The iShook Solution â€œIf we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost the future.â€? -Winston Churchill
iShook is seeking to enhance its singular network to facilitate and host digital content and increase content creators visibility. Rather than have content creators lost under a multitude of distribution networks and social media channels, iShook provides a singular social network gateway between authors and their audiences. For example, an author on iShook can self-publish for a minimal fixed yearly fee rather than a fee for each work, and the author can then monetize their work, and then reach a dedicated audience directly on iShook platform. A reader can then consume content directly from authors, and share their thoughts and insights straight through a social networking platform containing like-minded individuals. iShook is for the social reader who searches for better access channels to their desired content. Âˇ
iShook is for the note takers who wish to share and access their notes directly from content creators and other readers. Âˇ
iShook is for the content creators looking for a single network channel in which they can publish, monetize, and market their content. Âˇ
iShookâ€™s future goals include a content ecosystem in which any medium of creativity can generate a profit. iShook plans on being a platform not just for facilitating publishers and readers, but also artists, musicians, actors, and any content developer seeking a better way to expose and monetize their material globally.
Existing Technologies “Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” Joel A. Barker iShook differentiates itself from existing startups, by utilizing blockchain technology on its already existing platform. Thousands of books already exist within the iShook ecosystem, and an immense number of users are already leveraging our existing platform. The social reading experience has already been initiated and is well underway on iShook. Content creators and consumers have both, publishing options and markup abilities at hand only to enhance their experience. The iShook ecosystem doesn’t just include our web application, but a developed mobile app, a news aggregator, and an eCommerce store. Coming soon, applications for Android platforms. See our Roadmap pages 34-35.

1. Web Platform
iShook currently facilitates over 12,000 publishers and over 60,000 ebooks through our partner â€œGardners UKâ€? www.gardners.com. Our platform serves the needs of users who wish to share their experiences across a list of social networks, all while hosting content natively. Our website www. ishook.com is our flagship platform featuring a robust social network and discovery tool for content creators and consumers alike. Our social network is meant to connect members of similar reading interests as well as authors with their potential reader-base. After signing up, users are then prompted to insert their general information to establish their profile on the platform. After that, users can customize their profile with photos, a cover photo, and a bio to let other users know who they are and what their interests are. Users can then add books to their library to start building their content collection on the website. Whenever users decide to share updates, they have a list of integrations to choose from when distributing their content. Once the basic user signup process is complete, they also have the option to sign up as an
iAuthor. This allows content creators the ability to not only publish their works natively on the platform but has a robust social media platform at their disposal for marketing and exposure to potentially millions of clients. This allows the iShook ecosystem to thrive not only as a platform for content interaction but content distribution as well. Sharing content as a publisher also allows a development angle where users can respond to published content and start discussions on how it can evolve for future works and iterations.
2. Blog & E-commerce Store As an extension to our already existing web application, iShook will also feature a blogging platform known as iShook Daily. The platform acts as an aggregator to serve users enticing and engaging content on a frequent basis to add to their daily experience. Content will be served across a myriad of genres to please even the most inquisitive of readers. iShook Daily will serve as a free access-extension to users participating in the iShook ecosystem. The blog will aggregate popular content genres including (but not limited to): 1. Fiction 2. Nonfiction 3. Business Texts 4. Short Stories 5. Self Help 6. Science Fiction iShook will feature the ability for authors to link their products (i.e., Books, mugs, marketing materials, etc.) to an e-commerce store of their choice. But of course, there are more significant
benefits to linking their products (i.e., Books, mugs, marketing materials, etc.) directly to the iShook eCommerce store. The eCommerce store will also offer a more open-ended â€œMini Marketâ€? in which content creators can go beyond providing their books and open up their brands to begin exploring merchandising options and more. These offerings will only compliment the iShook social media ecosystem by acting as an extended feature for content creator revenue streams.
3. Mobile Application Having a mobile application is integral when facilitating a 21st-century community. The iShook mobile demand will play a large part in our userâ€™s lives on-the-go as they not only read but share their intellect and insights to the iShook community. One of the many problems facing blockchain projects is a lack of a dedicated mobile application. iShook is currently not just a web platform, but also a robust mobile application that users can already download.
The iShook mobile application is already available in the iOS app store. The application already features over 20,000 books to purchase, as well as 40,000 books as free downloads and has already reached over 120,000 downloads in the iOS app store. A few of the already integrated features include: 1. Sophisticated sharing features to let users not only share their reading habits to the entire iShook platform but also share their activity on any social media platform of their choice 2. Push notifications to alert users as to any promotional offers currently occurring, author updates, and more. 3. User bookshelves to allow them to aggregate their content, and share their entire collection of what theyâ€™ve been reading with the iShook community. 4. Highlighting and markup features to allow users to add notes and highlight specific areas of books that they found to be captivating.
Blockchain Technology Blockchain technology provides countless possibilities for the registration and distribution of intellectual property, including transactions without intermediaries. Blockchain combined with a decentralized delivery of digital content creates a new paradigm shift in the era of digital management culture. Blockchain technology based encryption and digital rights management (DRM), payments, and transactions are secure by offering a distributed and transparent online marketplace. Verification and proof of identity in the digital service world is a challenging yet critical component to ensure the intentions of providers and consumers. As more and more services move online - and fraud continues to grow - this is of paramount importance not just to individuals, but to the businesses and governments with which they interact. Licenses of Content The nature of copyright-culture creates a gap in cultural participation. At iShook we encourage, protect and give priority to the use of free, shared or owned licenses as a means of helping to facilitate the construction of a cultural marketplace. iShook is working with Gardners UK, which has grown to become a leading wholesaler of books, eBooks, music, and film to retailers around the world. Based out of a 350,000 square foot facility in southern England, their stock represents the most extensive range of physical English language media products in Europe, as well as 1.6 million+ eBooks available for instant fulfillment to consumers.
Payments and Transactions There are a variety of electronic payment types available that reach providers worldwide. Along with Global ACH and wire transfers, PayPal is one of the most well-known methods. When considering how to make payments to affiliates, publishers, developers, or other suppliers, apart from being expensive, conventional payment systems are slowly becoming obsolete. iShook is currently working with coinpayments.net & Parallelpayments.com to accept a wide range of cryptocurrencies including iShook Token, and to provide PSP tailored solutions that allow cryptocurrency payments on behalf of our providers. This means business-as-usual with safety, speed, and security. Smart Contracts iShook Tokens will be minted off of the Ethereum blockchain as ERC-20 standardized tokens. The importance of iShook Tokens adhering to this standard is that they are compatible with any ERC-20 compatible wallet (MyEtherWallet, MetaMask, IMToken, etc.) to ensure our procedures within the Ethereum network are streamlined. ERC-20 standardized tokens adhere to transfer procedures, data accessibility, and full smart contract communication functionality.
These contracts are signed cryptographically between the parties and are intended to provide greater security than traditional contract law. In doing so, they also reduce transaction costs along the process of contracting. iShookâ€™s smart contracts mean a considerable saving of time and money for artists, producers, institutions, organizations working in the content creation and publishing sector.
A connection with the Ethereum Mainnet will be handled using Mist (cold storage) & backup on external hard drives, which will serve as our Ethereum node. This will ensure that our connection to the network is always synchronized, and transactions can be processed and validated fast and securely. A React and Web3 stack will be used as our front end bridge, and interface to monitor all events in real-time.
1. iShook Tokens: A New Digital Economy
Cryptocurrency has been a unique and growing way to not only grow brand awareness, but a way to place power back in the hands of individuals who interact with systems by offering a specific form of valuable utility. iShook plans on harnessing blockchain technology to not only be on the cutting edge of recent innovations and breakthroughs but to incentivize our user base and decentralize a multitude of features already established on the platform. To introduce new and unique monetization models on iShook, we will be leveraging the Ethereum blockchain to create iShook Tokens. iShook Tokens will first be introduced to our web platform in the form of micro-transactions
and peer-to-peer payments for content and network exposure. The tokens will then recirculate through various incentive models deployed by iShook, creating an ecosystem in which users and content creators can transact. iShook will build value for iShook Tokens through the multiple ways in which users can utilize them throughout a multitude of platform functions as outlined in the following sections.
2. Content Creator Benefits
Content Creators will be able to manage their own accounts. In effect they will be in their own silos, with the success of each content creator depending on his own efforts, and not those of other Content Creators. In addition to a standard rate set by iShook in the royalties’ process, content creators will also have the ability to receive additional royalties for their content in the form of iShook Tokens. Besides providing an open publishing platform, we wish to give authors a bonus to help leverage their materials. These can then be spent on advertising through the iShook network to boost a content creator’s presence and assist them with visibility and sales. To help authors gain access to a broader audience, they will be able to exchange iShook Tokens for promoting their content to the entire iShook network. Authors will not only be able to signal-boost their recent works to the whole iShook community but also grant it a paid placement on the iShook eCommerce store through its “New Releases” tab. This will ensure that an author has the maximum amount of exposure for their content and that it doesn’t get lost in the rest of the noise. iShook will also feature dedicated advertising directly on the platform, which will give authors the opportunity to circumvent the tedious process of purchasing ad space and pay iShook Tokens directly for the possibilities.
One of the most significant hurdles as an avid reader is having access to the authors that genuinely make a difference in your life. To incentivize content creators to engage on the platform, they will be granted the ability to facilitate private Q&A sessions right on the iShook platform with their audience, and charge an access fee in iShook Tokens. Content creators will be able to charge both a spectator and engagement fee to be paid peer-to-peer in iShook Tokens. This feature will be hosted directly on the iShook platform, and grant content creators a plethora of multimedia options to utilize when hosting. To recap, each content creator will gain the following benefits (but arenâ€™t limited to these items) through the introduction of the iShook Token on the platform: 1. The ability to also receive royalties in the form of iShook Tokens on the platform 2. Access to an extensive advertising network within iShook for content promotion and exposure 3. The ability to host paid Q&A sessions and set prices on entrance fees
3. User Benefits One of the significant benefits that our iShook Tokens will offer users on the platform are discounts on both contents released by authors and items listed in the eCommerce store. If an author publishes content at a premium price, users will be able to subsidize or receive a discount on the content based on a variable rate of iShook Tokens that the author sets. A smart contract will be deployed to take care of any discounts established by an author and will facilitate the transfer of iShook Tokens. The same discounts apply to items that are to be listed on the iShook eCommerce store. On the content side, iShook Tokens will give users the ability to access an authorâ€™s notes and annotations in their work that they release for a premium price. One of the most coveted areas of knowledge for readers is the potential to achieve a fully fleshed out genetic criticism
through a full form of authorial intent. Aside from content creators, readers will also be able to release their notes on content for a fee to be paid in iShook Tokens. If a reader begins to add copious amounts of thoughtful notes to a work and begins to amass a following on iShook, we wish for them to be rewarded accordingly through our cryptocurrency in peer-topeer transactions that donâ€™t involve any intermediaries. Following on a previously mentioned symbiotic relationship, users will have the ability to pay content creators in iShook Tokens to access valuable private Q&A sessions that they can either spectate or participate in. Authors will set entrance fees for both a spectator pass and an engagement pass. We want to give content creators the ability to allow readers to determine the price of their works. This is why we are also opening up a tipping feature on the platform to let users name their price and have them determine what a piece of content is worth. Content creators will be able to establish a suggested amount for a bit of content, but the feature will enable users to name their desired price for the content and pay authors accordingly. To recap, users will gain the following benefits (but arenâ€™t limited to these items) through the introduction of the iShook Token on the platform: 1. Discounts on both content released by authors and eCommerce store products 2. Notes from both authors and readers to be paid with no intermediaries at a variable rate 3. Access private Q&A sessions hosted by the content creators of their choice 4. The ability to name their price on content when itâ€™s released for free by a content creator
4. Referrals, Incentives, and User Drive The majority of tokens minted outside of the crowdsale will be used to promote the growth of the iShook platform and to grant
benefits for active users and content creators. In iShook’s effort to kickstart its cryptocurrency based ecosystem, bonus incentives will be distributed to both content creators and users in a variety of different ways: 1. Bonuses to content creators will be granted once they sign up as iAuthors on the iShook platform. iAuthor’s won’t just have access to our advanced self-publishing and marketing tools, but will also be granted a significant amount of iShook Tokens which can then be spent on advertisements, promotions, and more. 2. Bonuses for submission milestones will be granted to iAuthors after a certain amount of content submissions are made to the platform. The more active an author is with content submissions, the more they’ll be rewarded by the platform. 3. Bonuses for engagement milestones will be granted to iAuthors that facilitate an extremely active audience. The more that readers engage and critique an author’s submission equates to rewards being issued to those content creators. 4. Bonuses for longevity milestones will be granted to users for being active participants on the iShook platform for set periods of time. Milestones will be reached upon set thresholds by iShook, and rewards will increase over more extended periods of time spent on the platform. 5. Bonuses for signups will be granted to users after fully establishing their profile and meeting a strict set of criteria to verify their identity. 6. Bonuses for referrals will be granted to users who actively seek to expand the iShook ecosystem by referring their friends, loved ones, and communities to join iShook.
Token Generation Event Token generation events have become popular vehicles in which funding is democratized to place power back in the hands of individuals. As we embark on our mission to democratize content, we wish for the community support to be directly linked to our development efforts. As such, we also want to ensure that users are protected throughout the entire process of the sale. As token generation events continue to grow in popularity exponentially, there have been increasing risks of security concerns associated with participation. However, at iShook, security is of paramount importance and will be treated with maximal control. Our crowdsale will be
operated through audited smart contracts to ensure the highest degree of user security. Smart contracts operate as agreements affixed to a blockchain network and only activate once all parameters are met in their operation. To participate in the iShook token generation event, individuals will send Ethereum as a means of payment to the designated contribution address which will be confirmed across all of our official social media channels. Once users submit Ethereum to the assigned address, the smart contract will then execute and grant the sender the relevant amount of iShook Tokens based on their contribution amount. Tokens will be available instantly in user wallets and will be transferrable upon the end of the token generation event.
iShook Tokens will have a complete fixed supply of 1,000,000,000 (one billion) tokens, 570,000,000 will be minted during our token generation event as per the parameters of our smart contract. At no point in time will new tokens be minted after one billion, nor will any other additional unique tokens be minted for the iShook platform. Our fixed supply will circulate solely through the various functions on the platform and will be utilized by iShook users to access features outlined in previous sections
2. Token Allocations
Percent of Minted Tokens
Locked in iShook Wallet
Funding Allocation 30% Scaling E.G. (Content acquisition, content development)
24% Marketing 20% Reserve 18% Development & Overhead 8% Legal
We chose a common token generation event distribution model to ensure that at least half of our minted tokens have the potential to be in the hands of our participants to use on the platform. This will kickstart platform functionalities and help begin to build our community and contributions. The other significant portion of the tokens will be distributed to platform participants over time in the form of incentives listed in previous sections. Incentive distributions will occur over situated periods of time to ensure user growth, participation, and to build our thriving content ecosystem.
3. Sale Economics and Dates In the condition that we have unsold tokens, we reserve the right to either put the tokens in our vendor’s section for platform growth. As the tokens continue to be distributed, a degree of scarcity will ensure which will only boost the token’s value on the iShook platform. Our sale will feature a soft target minimum of 2000 ETH. The reason for deploying this approach is to ensure that we reach a minimum goal to fund the development and marketing of iShook entirely. Once we reach our soft cap threshold, the sale will be deemed a success and will continue until the end-date specified. The pres-sale will begin officially on January 8, 2018. If this date is to change, it will be announced through all of iShook’s official social channels no later than one week from the anticipated token generation event launch date. The last five numbers of the contract address will also be announced for security purposes within twenty-four hours of the anticipated token generation event launch date.
4. Platform Bonuses iShook token holders can use their tokens to make purchases and will be granted a 9% discount iShook prodcuts. Tokens used by the iShook public will be injected by iShook into the ecosystem in the form of user incentives again, creating a cycle that will increase (lower) demand for iShook products and in-turn raise (or lower) the value of the tokens on the platform1.
1 iShook has the right but not the obligation to take a percentage out of the tokens injected into the platform, and place it into the specified locked wallet.
