Today, the 4T-DLT initiative, which arose from Leap, digitalswitzerland’s innovation programme, publishes a whitepaper. Broken down into the so-called “4 Trusts”, the authors provide fundamental information on the technical and legal framework to establish and operate a secure, interoperable, reliable and trusted digital infrastructure. The whitepaper is both a navigation guide and a source of knowledge for users, advisors and authorities. Under the umbrella of digitalswitzerland, the approach of a federative and collaborative innovation is followed to create an open repository for the technical and legal information, definitions and standards that will enable a secure, interoperable and reliable Swiss Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) infrastructure.
The flagship collaboration between digitalswitzerland, 4T-DLT and Capital Market Technology Association, with the objective of making Switzerland a world-leading distributed ledger technology hub, brought together 70 people at a first gathering at Kraftwerk in Zurich on 24 March.
The focus was on building the DLT community across Switzerland to enable the ecosystem to connect and exchange on the associated technical and legal standards.
