Joseph Nassise, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over forty novels, has made his mark on the NFT book platform Book.io.
On October 20th, the author sold 2,746 NFTs of its book The Heretic, the first book in his Templar Chronicle series, in 45 seconds on Book.io. Each NFT book was priced at $18, resulting in a total sale of around $50,000.
NFT books would allow authors to collect royalty payments for books that are resold over and over again.
“We believe readers should own their digital books, not just license them as they do from centralized retailers. The blockchain has unlocked the promise of the internet- that we can own and resell the digital goods that we buy,” stated Joshua Stone, CEO of Book.io.
In this regard, the Book.io platform claims its ambition to transform the way users enjoy their reading experiences and engage with authors. Recently, the platform received an investment from Ingram Content Group, one of the top service providers in the American book publishing sector, which will supply its digital and physical infrastructure, allowing it to expand and strengthen its offers.
