Blockchain And AI: Changing The Definition Of Publishing Authorship


In an interview with Cointelegraph, Booksie CEO Sol Nasisi described his vision of a future in which artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain will empower writers and transform the concept of book ownership. Through self-publishing, authors all over the world are now able to share their work with the public without going through the conventional gatekeepers of the publishing industry.

However, the self-publishing platform Booksie has embraced this and artificial intelligence (AI) as the sector attempts to stay up with modernity. Booksie founder and CEO Sol Nasisi discussed his vision for the future of self-publishing, which is based on the potent fusion of two cutting-edge technologies, in an interview with Cointelegraph. 

Blockchain: Author Ownership And Transparency

It’s not entirely new for the publishing sector to consider using this technology. Blockchain for Books, an awareness campaign regarding the possibilities of this technology in publishing, was started in 2018 by the Alliance of Independent Authors. The outcome was a manual titled Authors and Blockchain.

The shared public ledger at the center of a blockchain network can serve as a tool to help writers take back control of their creations and obtain important information. As more of the conventional web is hidden behind “walled gardens,” it can provide writers with an extra avenue for book sales, according to Nasisi. This gives creators the ability to safeguard their creations and provides transparency in addition to financial gains.
