I have an idea for a silkroad version for Asian comics.

http://kibabase.com/articles/manga-readers

Bug reports and criticism are greatly appreciated. Feature requests are not.

I am poor at grammar and it will take me a while to get real good at writing paragraphs without making a single grammatical mistakes. So I appreciate grammar nazis.

Also, the reason why I won't execute the idea I proposed is that I wrote about the idea without being anonymous, making me an automatic suspect should the enterprise happens.

Saying the "Silk Road" of anything is kind of dumb.  Other then the druggies, no one really likes that aspect of bitcoin here.  We profit from them, but the drug addicts don't tend to mine and build payments gateways,etc... This forum, I'd like to think, is more about people trying to make money by propagating a future for bitcoin.

With that said, I'm sure it would be easy enough to setup any kind of pirate site to charge bitcoin for downloads/memberships.  You'd have to really go over the top though, and appeal to tons of niche crowds.  I personally wouldn't pay for anything pirated.  I still buy my physical copies of mangas.

The whole point of my idea is to align all the interests and bypass anybody who aren't helpful. Manga are left in the dustbin of history, mangaka can't monetize their work, translators only work part time, and so on. Sure, you and others may buy physical copies of the book but it's a hassle. Plus, some of your money also go to printing operations.
