Section 13 of UETA states that evidence of a record or signature may not be excluded from being admissible evidence solely because it is in electronic form. Signer Pro affixes an audit trail to every document, which includes a designated SHA256 unique identifier that is stored in Bitcoin’s blockchain for perpetual verification, as well as snapshots of the document to capture every major change by different entities.
