Book publication using blockchain

Help wanted.

Raw idea, very brainstormish:

Book publication using blockchain

– integrity of a story
– the “checksum” mechanism is based on entropy of Finnish language
– the story will be complete, when all its pieces have been delivered
and reassembled
– since the book (Teknovelho 1) is about Damocles, it is a nice
trick to demonstrate also the technology described within as
the delivery mechanism of the book

algorithm of damocles in delivering a eBook (a natural language story)

– basic data unit = 1 line of text
– variable length lines
– max. line length = 80 (arbitrary limit)
– the original text is split into chunks
– the “whole book delivered?” boolean is calculated by using
verification algorithm

– first encrypt the book from orginal text
– deliver the fragment to recipient
– recipient knowing the
– algorithm used
– can decrypt (verify) their own version of the book
– story cannot be altered
– the writer can stream the book “interleaved” if necessary
– encryption does not mean enciphering, but merely that
the whole story cannot be claimed to be received

encryption of the book

– use chaining algorithm
– is a key needed, or NOT?
– if key is needed, author has the encryption key
– make the enciphered text using algorithm E(p,k)
– the original corpus needs to be complete before encryption can happen

decryption of the book

– get all cipher text blocks
– assemble the book by verification
– calculate the checksum of the whole assembled (candidate)
– looks exactly like Damocles described within the book
