China’s first notary utilizing blockchain technology was unveiled in Beijing in April at the Beijing CITIC Notary Office, Cointelegraph reported.
At the ceremony, Director of the Beijing CITIC Notary Office, Wang Mingliang, expressed his belief that the notary service operating on blockchain-based solutions will carry the legal significance of blockchain certification.
Meanwhile, Prof. Hu Jiyu of the School of Business of China University of Political Science and Law, stated that notaries running on blockchain will be able to provide services at a lower cost, while offering more efficiency and stability for customers.
