Discover opportunities to build and learn how FOUR plays a vital part in the future of Web3 Communication.
Welcome! This documentation will help you understand the development behind the 4P (i.e. 4thPillar) project. Here you will find concepts, how-to guides, quickstarts, tutorials, code examples, release notes, and more.

What is 4P?

4P = Community-build dMail & dChat project powered by the FOUR tokens.
Abstract: In the ever-evolving landscape of communication, pivotal technologies have shaped how humans connect. Electrical Telegraph and Airmail once symbolized the reach of reliable global correspondence, while the invention of internet messaging transformed the way we interact at scale. Today, blockchain technology propels us into a new era of secure, non-custodial, permissionless, and decentralized digital communication. Furthermore, it offers unparalleled data ownership, safeguarded by the distributed nature of blockchain, ensuring uninterrupted access and preserving the integrity of your conversations. This new technology can also be referred to as the fourth pillar of human communication, hence The 4thPillar project or short 4P.


Creation of robust Web3 communication in the form of decentralized email and messaging powered by community collaboration.

What are we building

We are building P2P dMail & dChat platform that is non-custodial, censorship-resistant, de-platforming-resistant, permissionless, and immutable with permanent permissionless access.
💡1 email/message = 1 L1/L2-TX

Project Design

The project's design centres around community collaboration to which any community member can contribute. Decentralized email and messaging MVPs (i.e. minimum viable product) will be deployed, and available for community upgrades and development. Open-source GitHub repositories stand ready for anyone to fork and propose enhanced functionalities. A set of smart contracts is set to enable FOUR token RTA (i.e. right-to-access) and conceptual RTC (i.e. right-to-claim) models.
  • FOUR: An technical component in solving RTA (i.e. right-to-access), MTO (i.e. multiple-transfer option), Grants, and Governance models in the ecosystem of Web3 communication.
  • gFOUR: This unique token not only represents a voice in the decision-making process but also signifies a deeper commitment to our project's growth and success.
  • 4thTech: The project which developed the back-end genesis Web3 Communication Protocol v.1, along with the SDK and dMail & dChat white-label framework.
  • Protocol v1: A suite of EVM smart contracts that together create Web3's first on-chain communication framework, that facilitates data ownership retention within peer-to-peer emailing, messaging, data file transfers, or any other form of communication.
  • Encryptor Extension: Communication and data E2E encryption Google Chrome Extension.
