The Authentication Protocol

The authentication protocol gives users the information they need to determine the likelihood that an asset is authentic. A network of authenticators is utilized to determine whether an asset is actually what the original minter represented it to be.

  • Asset authentication experts can join as nodes in the 4K network

  • 4K Protocol governance votes who can be an authenticator

  • Asset owners can request an in-person or remote authentication to be completed by an authenticator
