Protocol

The 4K Protocol Vision

The 4K Protocol is built with interoperability, decentralization, and composability in mind to support an ecosystem of people, projects, platforms, and communities.


Guardians

Guardians are nodes on the network that store physical assets and approve minting of physically-backed NFTs.

Physical Validators

Physical Validators are nodes on the network that coordinate authenticators and appraisers to determine authenticity and asset value.

Physical Oracles

Audit Oracles keep Guardians accountable by physically auditing the assets stored. Physical Asset Pricing Oracles provide a price feed to enable DeFi integrations.

Interoperability

The 4K Protocol is the bridge that enables physically-backed NFTs to move across multiple L1s and L2s without a working bridge. Even on non-EVM compatible blockchains.
