The 4K Protocol — A Decentralized Coordination Layer for the Physical World
We're building a new Web3 primitive, transforming the way physical assets can interact with the blockchain and enabling humanity to transact in trustless, permissionless, and never-before-seen ways.
Imagine a network with thousands of nodes, each responsible for ensuring that a physical asset stored on the blockchain is legitimate, accessible, and protected.
Guardians are nodes on the network that store physical assets and approve minting of physically-backed NFTs.
Guardians supply proof on whether an asset is truly backing a physically-backed NFT through the audit oracle. These audits are used to hold guardians accountable for losing or damaging physical assets.
Physical Asset Pricing Oracles
Collect data from various sources and update estimated pricing of assets on a time interval basis.
The authentication protocol will coordinate a network of authenticators to determine whether an asset is actually what the original minter represented it to be.
Professionals or anyone the community designates as a credible appraiser for specific asset classes.
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.
