    The team consists of professionals, as well as expert consultants, this is a big plus. Created its own token, there are discounts and bonuses.

    Risks and disadvantages

    It seems to me that the timeframes presented in the road map are slightly stretched, after a year, a more innovative solution will be required.


    The idea of communication between the author and the reader in real time is interesting. This will help to prove yourself to young readers without going to the publishing house.

    Rating of project


    Gilgamesh is a secure platform. With its help, readers will be able to communicate interactively. Thus, the project will bring great benefit to authors, readers, large and small suppliers of publishing services. The ease of acquiring information is another plus. Buy and sell information will be available to all interested participants.

    Risks and disadvantages

    There are no agreements with any publish companies. Strong partners are definitely needed.


    Reading books is quite popular, and the opportunity to discuss these books and reviews on them with like-minded people and even authors is great. I am sure that there will be a lot of users who will be very interested in this platform.

    Rating of project


    The application will unite different people interested in this field. Authors will be able to freely share their books.

    Risks and disadvantages

    will need to ensure compliance with copyright to avoid problems.


    The project has a future. It will be interesting to contact the author of the book in real time. It will also be easier for young writers to succeed.

    Leysan Gilfanova March 20, 2018
    Rating of project


    Makes it much easier for writers to publish books and find services without the interference of the publishers.
    The business model is logical and profitable.

    Risks and disadvantages

    It is possible that publishers could provide more legal assistance to writers that independent platform or servicer, so many authors will seek to have publisher instead of join platform anyway.


    This project deserves existence as a community place for authors, readers and service providers.

    Veronika Arbisman March 15, 2018
    Rating of project


    Will help wide range of people interested in same sphere and already divided on subgroups share their knowledge and be useful for each other.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Questions of plagiarism would be raised up at some point.


    Platform will already unite groups that share the same ideas or are busy in same work fields, what definitely will be quite helpful. On top of that, very actual question of real-time feedback and reviews are brought up. That definitely will help a lot in time, money and nerves saving. As additional plus - great opportunities to young authors to show themselves, as well as to editors to find new talents.

    Gilgamesh Platform

    What is the Gilgamesh Platform?

    At its core, Gilgamesh is a self-governing, knowledge-sharing social network platform powered by Ethereum smart contracts, IPFS and blockchain technology to create a secure, fair, and engaging ecosystem that connects readers, critics, authors, and self-publishing service providers to influence the book industry and remove the role of publishers as the middleman between the flow of knowledge from authors to readers.

    What problem does the Gilgamesh Platform solve?

    There is a gap in the market for a cohesive knowledge-sharing platform that enables book readers and authors to connect and engage with one another. The Gilgamesh Platform will enable readers to not only socialize and explore, but also to find, review, and purchase books. It simplifies the process of sharing and gaining knowledge.

    Authors benefit from a relationship with their readers by gaining constructive feedback while simultaneously encouraging a discourse and cultivating a love of learning.

    Service providers need advertisement space that reach authors so they can make self-publishing an affordable, reliable form of publication.

    Publishers limit the interactions between readers, authors, critics, and self-publishing service providers. The Gilgamesh Platform removes the communication barriers established by eliminating the publisher as a middleman. As a result, the platform gives readers, critics, and authors an opportunity to control the book market.
    Authors can break free of a monopolizing business partner (publishers) and gain full control of their work.

    What's Gilgamesh Platform roadmap?

    Release Plato – Research & Development
    Plato is the earliest version of the iOS application that will be released to the public.

    iOS application were users can socialize, add books to their profile, follow book readers and authors, write reviews and earn GIL tokens
    Please, read our detailed roadmap.

    Why use blockchain technologies?

    For decades authors had to work with their business partners (publishers) to publish and distribute books. Publishers are nothing more than a middleman that overcomplicates the process, infringes on authors' rights, and takes advantage of the power they hold in the market.

    A "standard" book contract does the following:

    Gives the publisher the right to the manuscript, whether published or not.
    Publishers can negotiate discounts on the cover price without the approval of the author, but the author's royalty will be cut
    Publisher can settle lawsuits on behalf of the author but often charge the author for the settlement fee.

    It is time to solve this problem and help authors to take full ownership of their work. IPFS is peer to peer hypermedia protocol and a cryptographic hash that will be used to store critical information such as book files and user information, IPFS is a great match for blockchain based software, we can store large amount of data with IPFS and insert immutable IPFS link into the blockchain transactions or smart contract, this can secure and timestamp our content without having to put the data on the blockchain.

    Ethereum smart contract will be used to create ERC20 standard token, GIL token allows holders to stake their tokens to vote on new features or changes to the platform.

    Ethereum smart contracts, IPFS, and blockchain technologies creates a transparent, censorship-free and secure ecosystem for the book market.

    Will be an android release?

    Yes, we are also considering to develop an android app.
    However, the iOS app will be developed and launched first.

    Gilgamesh Platform Token - GIL Token

    What is a GIL Token and how does it work?

    GIL token is an ERC20 standard token based on Ethereum blockchain powered by smart contract technology.
    GIL token is a utility token that can be used as a unit of account between book readers, authors, critics and service providers on the Gilgamesh Platform.
    The tokens can be used to buy goods or services--such as books or publishing services available through the platform--or can be held by users for voting power to govern the platform.
    There is no promise or suggestion of future performance, nor will GIL tokens hold a particular value. GIL tokens give no rights in the company and do not represent participation in the company. GIL tokens are sold as a utility token or a functional goods. GIL tokens are meant only for experts in cryptographic tokens and blockchain-based software systems. GIL tokens should not be used for investment purposes.

    How will governance work?

    Token holders can stake their GIL tokens to vote on and propose new changes to the platform. Each GIL token represents a voting share. Voting shares will be proportional to the number of staked tokens.
    Voting shares will be used to create consensus on proposed changes and features for the Gilgamesh platform.
    Check Gilgamesh Platform Voting DAPP on Ropsten test network.

    Token Sale Purchasers: 25%
    Skiral Inc. will utilize a token sale campaign to raise money for the development of the Gilgamesh Platform. Token sale purchasers can gain influence in the governance of the Gilgamesh Platform, spend tokens on the platform on goods and services, or maintain their initial status to vote and influence the Gilgamesh platform for future features and changes.

    Retained by Gilgamesh (Skiral Inc.): 20%
    For 18 months after the token sale, GIL tokens will be locked and withheld from the platform and disbursed slowly in order to maintain growth and sustain the GIL ecosystem through platform operations, research and development, product discovery, and expansion.

    Founders: 20%
    The Gilgamesh platform will be built by a core team of developers and programmers over the course of several years. To reward past work and stimulate progress, the founders and early contributors will be given GIL Tokens as a reward and to acquire governance power over the platform.

    Founders will receive GIL tokens over a 24-months vesting period with a 6-month cliff, which means founders will mature 25% of their GIL tokens every 6 months.

    Will there be a lockup period for GIL tokens sold in the token launch?

    Yes, tokens will be locked up for several weeks -- depending on how long the KYC verification takes.

    Token Legal Considerations?

    Skiral, Inc. is working with top law firms in the U.S. After careful and thorough analysis, the legal team believes that under federal common law the GIL token is likely not a security.

    Your purchase of GIL tokens is non-refundable. GIL token holders do not hold any equity position in Skiral, Inc. The GIL token is not guaranteed to hold any inherent or future value. GIL tokens should therefore not be used for investment purposes.

    The application of the Howey factors to the GIL token suggests that the token is not a security.

    Why the name Gilgamesh?

    The Epic of Gilgamesh is the title of the first known written book in the history of the world. Our team sees the Epic of Gilgamesh as humankind’s first attempt to record and disseminate knowledge to the public, so that is how we chose to name our platform. Like the epic poem, the Gilgamesh Platform endeavors to share valuable knowledge but through a social media-based platform.
