Advances over the last several years have led to the development of more efficient ways of doing business. Back in the late 1990s, one way that companies sought to address customers’ changing expectations was by incorporating e-signatures into their business transactions. Today, many organizations use e-signature software to encrypt documents likes sales contracts or employment paperwork that an employee, partner or client needs to provide. And companies have reaped the benefits. The number of worldwide e-signature transactions jumped from 89 million in 2012 to 754 million in 2017.

Today, more and more transactions are being handled online across a broad range of categories. Transactions can be Business-to-Consumer (B2C) and Business-to-Business (B2B), local and international, goods and services, and can be settled using credit cards, bank transfers or peer to peer payment networks. While different approaches have been deployed to ensure the safety of data transmission and to verify the identity of the parties, very little has been done to ensure that the transactions are memorialised in a secure and reliable manner.
