# 4thTech Governance

4thTech Governance is designed to give the community insight into the most impactful decisions concerning the development and project multiverse expansion. Snapshot is used to enable FOUR token community holders to signal their preferences on the project proposals.

# Governance Token

According to CMC, governance tokens are tokens that developers create to allow token holders to help shape the future of a project. In the case of 4thTech, ERC-20 FOUR token acts also as a governance signal token. ERC-20 FOUR token holders can influence decisions concerning the project such as proposing or deciding on new feature proposals, new chain deployment and similar.

# FOUR Token

FOUR token is a multi-chain asset, a technical component that enables 4thTech tokenization with staking and transaction services fee discounts. Natively an ERC-20 token has a deeper power also as a signalling governance mechanism.

# Voting on Snapshot

Snapshot is a decentralized voting signalling system that allows ERC-20 FOUR token holders to signal their preferences on 4thTech proposals but will not replace the governance structure. Voting on Snapshot is user-friendly and does not cost gas as the process is performed off-chain. 4thTech is using Snapshot to allow users to signal their preferences on the project proposals.

Note:

💡 Snapshot votes are NOT binding, they allow FOUR token holders to signal their preferences on 4thTech proposals but will not replace the governance structure.

4thTech uses the Snapshot platform to take a “snapshot” at a certain block. This snapshot dictates the voting power of each wallet, where 1 FOUR = 1 vote. The platform weights votes by the amount of a given token a participating wallet address holds. Once a proposal reaches public referenda, token holders can vote on it using their own FOUR tokens.
