Today, NooSpace became the first science fiction novel backed by its own cryptocurrency!

The science fiction world of NooSpace is coming real, one step at a time.

In the book, the virtual world is powered by a Bitcoin-like currency called NooCash that’s used to buy and sell goods, services, and real estate in VR.

Now, NooCash is “real.” I have created it as a token on the Ethereum platform. That means that if you have an online wallet that supports Ethereum, you can collect and send NooCash.

And if you pre-order the NooSpace novel, I will send you free NooCash as a reward!

So, I hear you asking, what is NooCash good for?

Not much. Yet.

Frankly, it has no cash value today, and there’s a chance that it never will.

But it’s still worth your while, for many reasons:

  • If you’ve never used cryptocurrency before, this is an easy way to start. Just pre-order the book and I’ll send you free NooCash! It’s not as scary as Bitcoin or Ether. 🙂
  • In the future, you might be able to cash in your NooCash for real stuff, like NooSpace-themed goods, new ebooks, digital downloads, or product discounts.
  • There are grander plans afoot to provide even more uses for NooCash. Watch this space for more news!

In one sense, NooCash is like a reward points system. When you order the book you get points (NooCash) that you could use to select gifts in the future.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Pre-order NooSpace. The lowest tier only costs US$10.
  2. Within a day or so after your order, you will get an email saying how to redeem your free NooCash.
  3. To receive your reward, you will need an Ethereum compatible wallet, such as MetaMask, MyEtherWallet, or Mist. (The email will include detailed instructions).
  4. Reply to the email and provide your wallet’s account number.
  5. Free NooCash will wing its way into your account! You’ll get a confirmation email after this happens.

Your NooCash reward will be based on your order, as follows:

  • Tier 1: Virtual Reader (1 eBook) => 50 NooCash
  • Tier 2: Real World Reader (1 paperback) => 100 NooCash
  • Tier 3: Super Awesome Reader (3 paperbacks) => 300 NooCash

Of course you are not obliged to set up a wallets and get NooCash. It’s just a fun thing for anyone who’s interested.
