About this app

Publica e-reader app is the official app of the Publica.com platform and is the first app ever to allow users to buy ebooks instantly with the cryptocurrency!

E-reader app is serving double duty as an ebook reader and cryptocurrency wallet.

☆ How Publica works:

Each book available in the e-reader app is represented by a unique cryptocurrency token. In order to access the content, you have to create a new wallet and add some funds or import your existing wallet address. When purchasing an ebook in the e-reader app, users are purchasing an ERC20 token which is representing the access key to a book. It is possible to buy multiple copies of a book and send ebooks to other people (by sending the token from one user to another).

By leveraging the blockchain technology users can now send, receive and purchase books from and to anywhere in the world! All transactions are happening under-the-hood, to make the user experience as smooth as possible.

☆ Main features:

You can buy ebooks with the PBL cryptocurrency and read them on a simple, easy-to-use interface.

In the catalog, you will find a list of books available for purchase. In the future, the number of available books will continue to increase with the ability to buy books published on the Publica platform.

Great app, easy to use and clearly shows the books you have, what's available, how much credit you have of their Pebble tokens used to buy the books and even let's you send books to friends.

Nonfunctional. No categories, books, store or anything load. Either just a current server issue or this app hasn't been updated to most recent standards.
