Mark Cuban to Release Book as NFT
Mark Cuban's decision to release his book as an NFT aligns with the growing trend of notable figures exploring the potential of NFTs in the publishing world.
Mark Cuban's Unique Publishing Venture
Mark Cuban, the well-known American entrepreneur and TV personality, is embarking on a unique publishing venture by releasing his book as a non-fungible token (NFT). Titled "How to Win at the Sport of Business: If I Can Do It, You Can Do It," the book will be minted on the Polygon blockchain and made available through Book.io, a multi-chain Web3 marketplace specializing in decentralized eBooks and Audiobooks.
In this book, Cuban shares his extraordinary journey in business and life, documenting his remarkable transformation from a powdered milk vendor and a humble guest on friends' couches to a self-made entrepreneur who achieved billionaire status. Readers will gain insights from Cuban's experiences and learn valuable lessons that can empower them to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.
Details of The Book Publishing
The decision to release the book as an NFT arose after Mark Cuban discussed the concept during an episode of the Bankless podcast, subsequently connecting with Book.io to make it a reality.
The NFT book is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, June 6, 2023. Interested buyers can purchase the book for 5 MATIC (approximately $5), with a limited supply of 10,000 numbered eBooks, 385 unique cover designs, and 257 1:1 cover designs. Once purchased, readers can access the book using Book.io's anonymous eReader decentralized application (dApp), offering a seamless and secure reading experience.
Book.io gained significant attention in October 2022 when it secured investment from Ingram Content Group and facilitated the sale of 2,746 NFTs of Joseph Nassise's book "The Heretic" in a mere 45 seconds.
