# 4thpillar Technologies (i.e., 4thTech) Project Whitepaper

  • 4thpillar Technologies publications Type: White Paper
  • Status: Published
  • Updated: 22.07.2021
  • Europe 2017 - 2021
  • Author: 4thTech Initiative
  • Purpose: Project proposal & overview

Abstract:

The internet changed the way we live, it opened the ways of unlimited communication and revolutionized access to information, but it failed greatly regarding our digital freedom. Instead of providing trust, granted privacy, security, peer-to-peer communication, simplification, and digital money, it evolved into a system of global intermediaries that manipulate our private data and charge a percentage for every interaction. There is a new technology at the horizon called blockchain, which in its core excludes any intermediaries, it brings peer-to-peer communication, online trust, security, privacy, authenticity, identity, synchronized ledger and much more. 4thpillar Technologies or short 4thTech is the next-gen multi- blockchain habitat, platform, cryptocurrency, and a suite of decentralized applications that enable users to exchange metadata, data files and instant messages from wallet to wallet in a secure and decentralized manner. This whitepaper was written as a hybrid addressing the 4thpillar Technologies product benefits and solutions. Over 200+ project whitepaper versions were written before the last published version.

# Blockchain 4thTech e-delivery cross-platform client and enterprise access point development proposal technical paper

  • 4thpillar Technologies publications Type: Technical Paper
  • Status: Published
  • Europe 2020
  • Authors: Dr. Tali Rezun, Denis Jazbec
  • Purpose: Solution proposal

Abstract:

We propose a blockchain electronic data and document exchange cross-platform client (i.e., win, os, android, ios), that will provide electronic data and document exchange with document notarisation and digital identity mechanism between users in a reliable, safe and trusted way. Additionally, we aim to develop Access Point (i.e. AP) to leverage trust and direct blockchain connectivity. The proposed 4thTech cross-platform client is an upgrade to the existing blockchain electronic data and document exchange protocol (i.e. FOURdx), that is currently accessible and operational online. Blockchain eDelivery has significant security advantages, comparing to traditional eDelivery. It is based on a distributed model where electronic data and documents exchange process runs between blockchain wallets, where private and public cryptographic keys are used for transaction authentication. Existing 4thTech solution is capable of; (1) connecting senders and receivers by executing electronic data and document exchange; (2) performing eDelivery based on the current EU guidelines, and; (3) archiving securely encrypted data. After two years of MVP testing, the technical feasibility and its practical potential have been proven, with that, the blockchain cross-platform eDelivery client development proposal has merit. The technical paper was written as a part of the technical documentation CEF Telecom tender package (CEF-TC-2020-1 – eDelivery) submitted to European Commission in Q2 2020.

# 4thTech Layer 1 blockchain instant messaging (i.e., FOURim) Light Paper

  • 4thpillar Technologies publications Type: Light Paper
  • Published: 05.07.2021
  • Authors: Dr. Tali Rezun, Denis Jazbec
  • Purpose: Solution proposal & overview

Abstract:

The internet changed the way we live, it opened the ways of unlimited communication and revolutionized access to information, but it failed greatly regarding our digital freedom. Instead of providing trust, granted privacy, security, peer-to-peer communication, simplification, and digital money, it evolved into a system of global intermediaries that manipulate and exploit our private data. There is a new technology at the gates called blockchain, which in its core excludes any intermediaries, it brings peer-to-peer communication, online trust, security, privacy, authenticity, synchronized ledger and much more. 4thpillar Technologies (i.e., 4thTech) main innovation is the multi-blockchain (i.e., Ethereum, HashNet, Polkadot Edgeware...) digital data exchange protocol, accompanied by a unique digital identity solution. With the development of Solana, the close to real-time blockchain applications are beginning to take shape, with that the idea of the true on-chain instant messaging (i.e., chat) came to life. This light paper was written as a hybrid addressing the 4thpillar Technologies product concept benefits and solutions.

# Document eDelivery and Notarisation Blockchain Enterprise Suite (i.e., DEN-BES)

  • 4thpillar Technologies publications Type: EIC Accelerator Pilot Proposal Document
  • Published: 03.10.2020
  • Authors: Dr. Tali Rezun, Denis Jazbec, Roman Dobrina & Anton Dobrina
  • Purpose: Solution proposal & overview

Abstract:

4thpillar Technologies (i.e., 4thTech) main innovation is the blockchain data eDelivery and document notarisation protocol, accompanied by a unique digital identity solution. Compared to existing systems, the 4thTech solution offers secure cross-border immutable service upgrade. Main protocol technical innovation reveals from the fact that the exchange data is not stored on the blockchain (e.g., storing or sending documents through any blockchain would be unsustainable). The electronic data and documents are stored off-chain. The protocol records links to encrypted files and hashes of the encrypted content on the blockchain. This safeguards the rights of individuals to confidentiality and privacy. Designed and built completely by 4thpillar Technologies, the protocol MVP is fully operational, ready for testing and provides the core technology solution for Europe’s public and private sector.

The overall strategy of the 4thpillar Technologies is based on the implementation and adoption of the project's blockchain digital identity, data eDelivery and Notarisation solutions, to enable the cost-efficient transition to immutable, cross-border and green DLT systems.

# Document Tokenization used for 4thTech Service Value FEE Monetization

  • 4thpillar Technologies publications Type: EIC Accelerator Pilot Proposal Document
  • Published: 27.08.2021
  • Authors: Dr. Tali Rezun, Denis Jazbec
  • Europe 2020
  • Purpose: Solution proposal & overview

Abstract:

Blockchain technology enables an alternative incentive mechanism through FEE tokenization.1 Tokenization addresses the weaknesses such as cybersecurity and disintermediation while enabling advantages such as; (1) 24/7 borderless access; (2); the speed of execution (3) lower transaction (i.e., TX) cost; (5) scalability, and; (6) transparency. As the cost of developing experimental blockchain technology projects is higher, a clear revenue model strategy is crucial. 4thTech creates value by connecting electronic data senders and recipients into a marketplace, enabling them to exchange sensitive data in the form of metadata, data files and instant messages from wallet to wallet using secure decentralized public blockchains. This value is monetized with the help of FEE tokenization.
