BlockchainValley (BV) is building a Fourth Industrial Revolution (4th IR) Ecosystem, which will consist of a tokenized e-commerce platform focused on 4th IR technologies goods and services combined with a Universal R&D location in Africa (Stellenbosch, SA) for testing and deploying these emerging technologies.

BV Ecosystem will also include a unique e-Citizenship program and have its own native utility token called 4IR and a sophisticated rewards mechanisms. It will also feature many other interoperable utilities such as a 4IR Jobs platform, 4IR cloud storage utility and 4IR Wallet among others.

Our proposed " Utility '' 4IR Token is currently going through the process of seeking regulated approval in the EU (France).

There are so many powerful and exciting new technologies that it’s hard to keep up. In fact, there are so many emerging technologies that we find ourselves in a societal disruption; the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In this industrial revolution of our time, everything is becoming interconnected.

The digital world (IoT, AI, Blockchain, Big Data) is fusing with the physical (5G, drones, robotics, autonomous vehicles, 3D printing) and most importantly the biological (genetic engineering, CRISPR, nano and biotechnology).

Most of these technologies are evolving and converging at an exponential rate. They can bring humanity to the next stage of civilization, but also pose many challenges for societies.

The New Revolution

The BlockchainValley ecosystem has set out to maximise the positive impacts of emerging technologies on society and individuals by bringing all these technologies together on our unique blockchain.

We want to help solve some of the most relevant challenges of this new paradigm by giving individuals a chance to become part of tech (digital inclusion); empowering people through digital citizenships (eCitizenship) and governance (consensus) and providing earning opportunities via token rewards, participation, data ownership and new opportunities (4IR token).

There are also big advantages for organizations that work with emerging technologies (eCompanies) on BlockchainValley. They can interact with and sell to ecitizens, share R&D with the network, collaborate with other companies and get a physical presence in our technology hub in South Africa.

Building an Inclusive ESG Ecosystem

Unique In The Industry

The 4IR token is BlockchainValley’s unique cryptographic token.

4IR will be used to pay for all things within BlockchainValley, can be awarded to participants who make valuable contributions to the ecosystem and is used to keep our blockchain safe.

4IR enables stakeholder capitalism, which means that everyone involved receives a share of the value created instead of a select group of stockholders.

Through the 4IR token, we want to create an inclusive and global digital micro-economy.

4IR Token

Following regulation

In a complex digital asset industry, from a legal point of view, BlockchainValley has chosen France, a G7 country, in pursuit of regulation for subscribers' security.

France's financial market authority (AMF), the equivalent of the US SEC, created a framework to control and supervise public token offerings. Companies whose digital assets have been recognised as utility tokens and comply with all of the legal requirements will be given a "visa" for six months.

BlockchainValley will apply for this visa and submit all required documents to the AMF for their review in the coming months.

BlockchainValley's KYC/AML compliant onboarding platform for the token sale has been developed together with Kroll who helped us define the procedure and will assist us in the process.

The Platform

Anyone can participate on BlockchainValley. Our goal is to become the central hub for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, for both individuals and any type of organization from around the world.

A Thriving Ecosystem

4IR Token

4IR is BlockchainValley's unique token. This means that all stakeholders have a common goal; to maximize the number of ways for which the token can be used and hence the value of the 4IR token.

Money is a social construct that is being redefined by crypto assets.

By financially aligning all BV stakeholders, we can turn the 4IR token and BlockchainValley into a valuable micro-economy


Aligning every BlockchainValley stakeholder

By requiring all ecosystem transactions to be conducted in the native 4IR, token, value generated within BlockchainValley can be kept in its economy.

Every time someone decided to pay with 4IR, store it in their wallet or accepts it as a payment, the BV micro-economy becomes a little more valuable.

Capturing ecosystem-unique value

BlockchainValley’s tokenized business model and token-based rewards mechanisms lead to natural incentives to promote the platform to others.

Moreover, each new user adds value to the network as a whole, kickstarting network effects from the launch of the ecosystem.

Create network and word-of-mouth effects

Ultimately, BlockchainValley’s goal is to become an independent, inclusive economic system geared towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The token economic model as well as the usage of a blockchain-based payment system allow for the creation of such a global micro-economy, open to anyone from anywhere.

Establish an inclusive micro-economy

The following MVPs are interoperable utilities that will work with 4IR tokens. We have been working and developing these engineered platforms quietly and progressively.

After completion of our future token offering, subject to AMF visa approval, and 4IR token distribution, these platforms will start to operate in beta officially with the token and scale through infinite iterations:

Interoperable applications

Tokenized social eCommerce utility for 4th Industrial Revolution Tech

4IR Wallet

Our wallet that will work for our utility tokens, may they be structured as ERC20 token or on the 4IR blockchain protocol

4IR Explorer

The explorer for our 4IR blockchain protocol

4IR Job

Job posting utility

4IR Cloud

Cloud-based storage utility


Autonomous and permissioned KYC utility


Dynamic data intelligence and data gathering form utility for all kinds of business to consumer purposes


Climate-oriented reward platform for commerce

BlockchainValley will shortly submit its application for the AMF visa, from France's financial market authority.

Subject to approval, the white paper will be made available after their review. All sales conditions and prices will then be disclosed.

The utility token nature of our 4IR token has already been confirmed, meaning that if we receive regulatory approval, the token officially qualifies as a utility token and not a security.

Stay up to date with our progress and get involved.

White Paper



Stay tuned and join our official social media channels.

Blockchain is the next big thing for the internet. A big part of our world is becoming digitized, but the way the internet currently works is not optimal

for most users.

Blockchain is a groundbreaking technology that enables digital trust, transparency, digital business models, optional privacy and inclusivity. It is an incredible tool for the empowerment of the individual and to create a native internet economy.

BlockchainValley aims to deliver to innovations of blockchain technology

such as smart contract solutions, decentralized applications and models

for tokenization to all users of the ecosystem and ultimately, to the global 4th IR. 4th IR technologies such as the IoT, AI, big data, VR & AR and robotics require novel systems for data management, transactions and interoperability.

To meet these unique demands, a customized blockchain protocol is required; the BV blockchain.

The technical white paper for the BV blockchain will be available once it has been approved by the French regulators.

Our 4IR Blockchain will also be geared to help 4th Industrial Revolution Enterprise and Silicon Valley startups who wish to start tokenizing their utility platforms and raise funding through regulated token offerings through France's legal framework or other jurisdictions around the world with such frameworks for utility token public offerings.

BlockchainValley will aim to structure its own 4IR Index of regulated utility tokens.

BlockchainValley's Backbone

Stellenbosch, South Africa

BlockchainValley has designated Stellenbosch in South Africa as the most suitable location for disruptive 4th IR technological and product development, research and experimentation. The smart community ecosystem will be a major asset going forward for several reasons.

- South Africa is one of the most pioneering countries in the world

- Diverse human capital and first world infrastructure

- Strategic location for companies to enter the African continent

- Set of first-class universities in the Western Cape region of South Africa

- Cost-efficiency with regards to real estate and nominal labour value

- Africa's expected population growth 100% by 2050 to 2 billion consumers
