EthSign的魅力。EthSign平台由Potter Li和Xin Yan于2019年创立,由Jack X提供电子签名平台。不同于传统电子签名平台所潜藏的数据隐私与安全的隐患,EthSign通过智能合约平台(Smart Contract)、去中心化身份(Decentralised ID)和去中心化储存网络(Decentralised Cloud Storage)等Web3技术,允许用户使用透明化的电子签名服务,安全地访问、编辑和签署任何文件。

目前,该项目的前端为电子协议签名平台,而这其中智能合约平台更能够提供传统电子签名平台所无法提供的服务。它不仅能够作为背书和认证平台、链下资产上链的凭证,还能作为分布式自治公司(Decentralised Autonomous Organization,简称DAO,为一种不受政府影响且拥有公开透明的计算机代码组织结构)和链下世界的交互界面,并且进一步地构建用户的链上身份信用体系。
