Sagewise Releases Alpha Version of Blokusign, First Gmail-Integrated Blockchain-Powered Electronic Signature Tool
LOS ANGELES – SEPT. 17, 2018 – Sagewise, a leading technology company focused on building a safety net for smart contracts to enable the efficient resolution of disputes, today announced its plans to release Blokusign, a blockchain-powered application for digital signatures. The product combines electronic signature technology, which has become the new standard in documentation due to its ease of use and convenience, with the benefits of the distributed ledger. Blokusign offers the same frictionless experience as existing electronic signature applications while providing better authentication and record keeping via blockchain technology. Blokusign is the first-ever tool of its kind to integrate directly into Gmail as an add-on application.
“Gmail integration was paramount for the launch of Blokusign, as we wanted to make the experience as user-friendly as possible,” said Amy Wan, co-founder and CEO of Sagewise. “By leveraging a platform most people are familiar with and making our interface intuitive, consumers can use Blokusign without having to learn any new behaviors, making mass adoption much more likely.”
Incumbent electronic signature systems rely on centralized organizations to maintain, manage and authenticate documents, which is an unreliable, time-consuming and potentially expensive process that leaves parties at the mercy of e-signature companies which may be unresponsive or unable to locate records. Blokusign decentralizes all of these tasks, allowing users to authenticate and prove the providence of a signed document immediately.
Founded in 2017, Sagewise is a technology company focused on the efficient resolution of disputes involving smart contracts.

The company’s proprietary SDK, released in April 2018, provides the tools and infrastructure needed for the effective handling of disputes at any stage in the development and execution of smart contracts, freezing contracts in place while they are being resolved. Sagewise’s mission is to provide peace of mind to all parties to a smart contract, ensuring that the outcome of a blockchain endeavor is consistent with the parties’ true intent.
