Dive into 4thTech Technology

4thTech is the next-gen multi-blockchain ecosystem, 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 ecosystem diagram serves as a guide for all that are getting started with 4thTech. Feel free to explore by clicking on the blue circles.

Connects wallets when data is exchanged and serves as the public key exchange point between users.

Leverages trust sourced from the blockchain and provides a secure,
immutable Wallet A to Wallet B (i.e.FOURwaL) digital data file exchange.
Leverages the power of blockchain to facilitate
source and time confirmation for data files.
Provides a secure way to connect to the 4thTech
blockchain applications (i.e. FOURid, FOURdx, FOURns & others)
as it contains a pair of public and private cryptographic keys.
Tokenization Service (i.e. TS) enables
the monetisation of 4thTech transactions.
A multi-chain compatible
asset, a technical component
that enables 4thTech
tokenization with staking
and transaction discounts.

Enable end-users to access immutable, data file exchange (i.e. FOURdx)

Enables enterprises to solve important blockchain challenges
within a niche industry of data file exchange and eDelivery
while providing scalable, interoperable, multi-blockchain
solutions.
FOURid prepares and sends WSDL request in a SOAP envelope
via HTTP POST protocol to the government managed automated service
(i.e. the issuer of the X.509 certificate), which replies with the verification.
Onboarding HUB accessed by the end-user via google chrome
or Mozilla Firefox web browser with installed FOURwaL.
Developed Docker containers will be integrated into Kubernetes clusters,
which enables the overall scalability and elasticity of the 4thTech systems.

As 4thTech solutions moved to production, Linode Linux virtual machines cloud server infrastructure was chosen.

Written to facilitate solution unique requirements
such as; (1) saving unique data file ID;
(2) deliver links to data files.
Govern by an Application Program Interface (i.e. API),
the Access Point will serve as a connection point between
existing enterprise IT infrastructure (i.e. ERP) and blockchain network.
4thTech uses hosted Ethereum-node on Infura over JSON-RPC protocol,
to connect to the Ethereum node. In the case of HashNet protocol, 4thTech uses
Tolar Gateway which transforms JSON-RPC calls to gRPC (i.e. universal RPC framework)
calls to connect to the HashNet node. In the case of connecting to the
Polkadot/Edgeware node, 4thTech uses JSON-RPC protocol.
4thTech utilizes advanced encryption standard (i.e. AES),
with a combination of RSA encryption and hash algorithm 256
(i.e. SHA 256) to secure data file exchange.

A local or cloud file repository is used for storing encrypted data files.

A Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox extension,
that supports various chains and the first system on the market
capable of handling cryptographic tokens but also
other assets such as encrypted data files and metadata.

Client App 4thTech Platform

The 4thTech web platform serves as an onboarding HUB accessed by the user via a Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser with an installed FOURwaL blockchain wallet add-on. The platform combines several services and components; (1) digital identity or short FOURid (status: active); (2) data exchange or short FOURdx (status: active); (3) data verification (i.e. notarisation) service or short FOURns (status: active); (4) data encryption service (status: active); (5) off-chain database and repository (status: active); (6) JSON metadata schema (status: active), and; (7) transaction fee mechanism (status: partly active, partly in development).

As a part of the 2.0 update, the 4thTech web platform codebase was rewritten with TypeScript and has overgone the crucial performance upgrade from Vue 2 to Vue 3. New features and functions are embedded, so the user experience can be as intuitive as possible. The 2.0 update includes automatic electronic data verification (i.e. FOURns), while the blockchain network address recognition system simplifies the data file exchange (i.e. FOURdx) process. The 4thTech platform 2.0 enables users to solve important technical blockchain challenges within a niche sector of data exchange while supporting Ethereum, HashNet and Polkadot-Edgeware public and private chains.

1. Build with the Best Technology

4thTech web platform codebase has been written with TypeScript, a superset of Javascript that supports a type system and compiles to plain Javascript. The platform utilises Vue 3, which is high performant. Under the hood, Vue 3 is completely rewritten with TypeScript.

2. Enabling Multi-Chain

4thTech uses hosted Ethereum-node on Infura over JSON-RPC protocol, to connect to the Ethereum node. In the case of HashNet protocol, 4thTech uses Tolar Gateway which transforms JSON-RPC calls to gRPC (i.e. universal RPC framework) calls to connect to the HashNet node. In the case of connecting to the Polkadot/Edgeware node, 4thTech uses JSON-RPC protocol.

3. AES & RSA Encryption & SHA-256 Checksum

4thTech utilizes advanced encryption standard (i.e. AES), with a combination of RSA encryption and hash algorithm 256 (i.e. SHA 256) to secure immutable data exchange. The data are encrypted with a symmetric algorithm (i.e. AES), as the asymmetric algorithm (i.e. RSA) is used to encrypt the symmetric key and initialization vector (i.e. IV) with the public key of the receiver.

4. High End Encryption Design

4thTech encryption design does not allow an attacker to infer relationships between segments of the encrypted message. Secure hash algorithm 256 is used to calculate the file content hash value when executing a data exchange transaction via smart contract.
