At this conference, MeSince proposed a perfect series of electronic signature service solutions to the Belt & Road countries’ CAs that MeSign service will open to the end users of the European and the Belt & Road CAs for FREE, to utilize the 400 million USB Key certificates issued by 48 Licensed CAs in China, in additions to the 8 million USB Key certificates issued by the Belt and Road countries CAs. The users whose identities have been validated by CAs can directly use their USB Keys to use the "MeSign" electronic signature service provided by MeSince for FREE, to do the online signing of Adobe global trusted and legal effect electronic contract for free. This is a free value-added service for all users of the Belt and Road countries CAs.

All users who have a USB Key certificate issued by the Belt and Road countries CAs can use MeSign service in four different ways:

(1)By using MeSince APP, once you receive the email with contract file attachment, just need to right-click the "MeSign" button, then user can digitally sign the contract for free;

No matter which way that user used for eSigning their document digitally, MeSign platform only upload the hash value of the file to implement the digital signature on the cloud and implement signature synthesis at the client to protect users’ confidential information security and their business secrets on the documents. However, other eSigning service providers require users to upload the original documents to their signing platform on the cloud to do the document signing.
