4thtech Project Overview

In 2017, 4thtech proposed and later developed a DLT solution, which leverages trust provided by the blockchain to provide secure, immutable, instant cross-border electronic data and document exchange and eDelivery (i.e. FOURdx). Digital identity mechanism (i.e. FOURid) later followed, which can with the help of X.509 EU certificate standard verify the connection between a blockchain wallet and a person. Notarisation service (i.e. FOURns) is also an essential part of the 4thtech ecosystem and provides unique digital document timestamp and authenticity verification.
