E-books Whitepaper

Version 1.1

Lore Free is dedicated to bringing everyone access to knowledge freely

What are the problems?

Invalid Resources

The free E-books websites unable to provide valid download links and resources. The websites could not sustain due to the cost and other factors. As the for the data stored on third party servers could not guarantee reliable access as well.

Lack of Transparency

It is quite often for many websites to adapt variety of membership system, but with all the data running on a centralized platform that often lacks of open and transparent mechanism, besides that, it cannot avoid the under the table operation. Also, the databases that keep the membership points could experience system failure, the points could be devalued with excess points issuance by the platform, and poor liquidity with are also common.

Stability Issue

A platform needs the community to participate, engage, contribute and work together in order to build a health long lasting community. Rely on the team of the platform working alone will not make very far.

IPFS Storage Protocol

Data are stored by adapting IPFS protocol that provides distributed storage, each file only has a unique copy, reduce the waste of storage resources, reduce storage costs, the platform resources will never be lost, the site will never shut down. More importantly, it protects the rights and interests of users permanently and effectively.

Lore Free Mission

"Books are not written to hide behind high walls, but to spread to the world, to inspire and illuminate people."Knowledge is not the prerogative of a small group of people, it should be free and smooth flow to everyone who needs it. Lore Free hopes to create a global wide, high-quality knowledge-sharing community through blockchain technology, to makes reading free and knowledge can be accessed freely.

Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves. The world's entire scientific and cultural heritage, published over centuries in books and journals, is increasingly being digitized and locked up by a handful of private corporations. Want to read the papers featuring the most famous results of the sciences? You'll need to send enormous amounts to publishers like Reed Elsevier.

There are two kinds of knowledge: we know the answer to a question ourselves, or we know where we can find the answer to that question.
