Who are we?

We're disruptive. We're passionate. We're here to change the way you read. Information is meant to be free, but authors need to be compensated. We give information its wings by giving back to the authors using ad revenue.

"Not giving students open access means they’re tested on their CONNECTIONS and STATUS, not their ability to learn."

Kemal Ahmed, Co-Founder

So what does this actually mean?

YouTube changed videos. Spotify changed music. It's time for someone to take back books. But we're more than that. We're tools that help you publish your awesome stuff. We're micro-communities for each category of content. We're a community governed by a blockchain-backed discussion platform.

Not Amazon, not OneClass, not Scribd, not any of the game-changers could balance free and paying the authors. We're the ones to do it. We're the students in your class you copied your notes off of even though you took them yourself. Most of the people we know are published researchers.

Our growing community is constantly helping us achive the way we read.Thounsands of users are already using our old platform to share and gain infromation. We're taking this to another level through Communote and welcoming you to join our community backed by students, teachers and like minded professionals.
