Financial security and decentralised savings

On 4th Pillar decentralized blockchain system every holder is in control over their own crypto savings, rewards and earnings. We are proposing a system, which enables employers to reward or transfer FOUR tokens directly to their employees without any intermediaries, saving time and costs. The challenge is to build a self-managed 4th Pillar decentralised personal savings fund, which is funded by the individual’s work organization.


John, paper producer

John has a paper production company headquartered in Germany. His company has small factories in different countries around the world. Every month John wants to send a reward to his employees. To everyone at the same time. But payments to other countries, especially outside Europe, are expensive and can take a lot of time – Even up to a few days. Then John started using the 4th pillar platform. Instead of standard money transfers he now makes transactions using FOUR token. That saves him more than 80% of transaction cost… within a click of a mouse. And it gets even better. The more transactions he makes the more money he saves. The 4th pillar platform gave John a quick and cost effective solution in the field of financial transfer.


Peer-to-peer documentation distribution

The 4th pillar enables you a more elegant possibility to securely send valuable documents directly from employer to employee.

Then – Alice decides to change jobs. By using the 4th pillar mobile app she easily promotes her work and share her professional identity with potential employers. She doesn’t even have to worry about her CV anymore. All of the provided information, was verified by of her past employers. The 4th pillar simplifies the way Alice can search and change jobs.

Ecological benefits of The 4th Pillar platform

Forests cover approximately 30% of the planet and the ecosystems they create play an essential role in supporting life on earth. They account for 75% of the gross primary productivity of the Earth’s biosphere and contain 80% of the Earth’s plant biomass. However, deforestation is clearing Earth’s forests on a massive scale.

Companies send documents and pay slips to each employee monthly. If we take for example a company with 950 employees. When sending pay slips, memos and contracts the company would use more than 1.300 envelopes as well as 3.000 sheets of paper strictly for transaction purposes. This translates to 120 trees per year and more than 8.84 tons of CO2 emissions. To better comprehend the scale let us compare this to a company with 10.000 employees. They would need 1.273 trees every year solely for document transfer and employee payments.

The 4th Pillar platform is based on blockchain transactions and digital communication. DAAP (decentralized application) will enable transfer and management of FOUR tokens, working blockchain HR database and peer-to-peer transfer of pay slips and work-related documents. With this technology, we will revolutionize the HR industry not only by implementing a cost-effective digital system but also by thinking green and by reducing the carbon footprint in businesses around the world.
