Decentralized Digital Marketplace

Codex is a highly decentralized digital marketplace which means authors and readers have the power to revolutionize the publishing world. We even the odds for new authors by bringing a fair platform.

Trustworthy and fair

We place authors at the center of our platform, offering them a free and beneficial environment where their creativity is not restricted and where they will be sure to be fairly remunerated.

Limited copies

As in real life, the books have a limited number of prints. Codex is creating the first digital printing factory where each author can set the number of copies for their books.

Resale books that you owns

Codex is creating a new economy based on resale : digital books bought on Codex are belonging to you, which means you can resale any books you own.

The mission of Codex is to allow each author to be able to express theirselves freely, without financial restrictions linked to the publication, without restriction of a publishing house, without restriction of a sales platform and to be able to manage the marketing as well as the promotion of a literary work on a fair and equitable platform.

As the author, you will receive 80% of the selling price of a literary work, the Codex platform will collect 5% to amortize the cost of operation as well as 15% to amortize development and generate profits.

You will be the heart of Codex, which is why we want to offer you a clear and transparent platform, allowing you to pursue your passion in a community of readers curious about new creative ambitions.

Our marketplace highlights authors from all backgrounds, and we want to promote the diversity and artistic quality of works. Whether you are Mangaka, fan of epic novels or fan of comics, you will find your place within Codex.

Each purchased work will become your property, which you can read, sell and trade. It will be stored in a virtual library in a decentralized manner and accessible to all.

We will make sure that every virtual work on our platform is an original and Blockchain verified work, and therefore you will own every work that you buy or publish on Codex.
