N/A 2022 / Deployment of the 4thTech FEE tokenization with ERC-20 FOUR staking
4thTech creates value by connecting data senders and recipients into a marketplace, enabling them to exchange sensitive data in the form of data files and instant messages using supported public blockchains. This value is monetized with the help of FEE tokenization and FOUR staking.
FOUR staking enables the FOUR token main utility by providing rewards in the form of FOURdx service FEE margin discounts while enabling the FOURim right to access.
N/A 2022 / 4thTech web platform full decentralization;
(1) separating frontend and backend; (2) deployment of frontend client on decentralized storage; (3) moving public key repository from database to decentralized storage
N/A 2022 / 4thTech decentralized storage research & initial concept development
While exchanging data files using FOURdx, we would like to offer users two choices; (1) existing GDPR compliant temporary cloud storage, and; (2) decentralizes data storage where encrypted data is spread between the network of nodes.
N/A DEV PIPELINE / 4thTech cross-platform desktop client
Developed for more demanding users, the 4thTech cross-platform desktop client (i.e., win, os, linux) will act as a multi-blockchain based digital identity, data file exchange, decentralized data storage and instant messaging software. Developed based on the service demand, enterprise client acquisition and grant funding.
N/A DEV PIPELINE / 4thTech mobile cross-platform app
Developed for mobile users, the 4thTech cross-platform mobile app (i.e., android, ios) will act as a blockchain wallet, data file exchange and instant messaging service. Developed based on the service demand, enterprise client acquisition and grant funding.
N/A DEV PIPELINE / 4thTech AP
The AP (i.e., enterprise access point) will provide 4thTech services access and will serve as a connection point between existing enterprise IT infrastructure (i.e., ERP) and the blockchain network of your selection. Developed based on the service demand, enterprise client acquisition and grant funding.
