• What if you want to read a new book without paying for that one?
  • How to meet and interact with other bookworms through an e-commerce platform?
  • How can I try out fresh genres from people who have loved their books?

What it does

  • Enables users to trade books in an e-commerce platform with ease
  • Allows people to handle trade requests by allowing users to send, accept and decline these requests
  • Matches book requests based on user’s preferences

How we built it


  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript

Challenges we ran into

  • Our team has difficulty connecting the middleware to the frontend
  • We faced difficulties in communicating with each other due to time zone differences
  • With the time zone difference, some of us had to compromise by sacrificing our sleeping schedules
  • However, we did not want time zone differences, sleep deprivation and a bad internet connection to hold us back from participating at Atlas Hacks 2020

Accomplishments that we are proud of

What we learned
