The Foundation’s mission is to develop and promote Quadrans platform as a global tool for trusted and efficient communication, governance and business. The Foundation will support research and education to foster decentralized protocols and tools that empower innovators to develop future applications and contribute to the creation of an inclusive, accessible and secure public network.

Quadrans will facilitate the creation of global cross-industry standards and provide the digital infrastructure for a new generation of decentralized applications (DApps).

In collaboration with institutions, Government agencies and academic partners around the world, the Foundation will contribute to the development of a distributed ledger technology model that could have the potential to change our lives and the society we live in.

We want to be part of the transformation by building a public and distributed platform to enable an efficient, transparent and trustworthy interconnection that supports traceability of information.



The first version of Quadrans blockchain was implemented in 2012 and has been successfully used to run business operations under the Foodchain brand.

The experience gained by the variety of use cases and the expertise shared by businesses, institutions, government agencies and academic partners have contributed to the evolution of the platform. The Quadrans Foundation has combined the extensive competences of its members with the 6 years of research conducted by the Foodchain team for the development of the Foodchain platform.

Today Foodchain successfully uses the first version of Quadrans blockchain platform for the traceability of supply chains within the Food industry.



Quadrans Foundation dedicates an extensive research effort supported by the contribution of a worldwide team of experts for the development of Quadrans platform. The Foundation conducts constant research efforts that will keep improving Quadrans platform and strengthen its characteristics. Meanwhile, the Foodchain’s digital assets will be gradually incorporated into Quadrans to ensure a seamless and continuous consolidation.

The Foundation will promote Quadrans adoption sustained by donations. The research and 6 implementation effort is supported by public or private organizations that want to contribute in pursuing the Foundation’s objectives. As a non-profit organization the resources and funds will be used to support the growth of Quadrans project and the activities involved.
