Announcement of Strategic Partnership with D-Engraver Limited

Today, we are pleased to announce the Strategic Partnership between D-Engraver Limited and Robinsons, Lawyers.

D-Engraver Limited is a high calibre Blockchain startup founded by HKUST Alumni and professors, with a track record of high-flying success since 2018.

Located in Science Park, the heartland of Hong Kong’s most innovative enterprises, D-Engraver Limited is among the early batches of companies being invested by the HKUST Entrepreneurship Fund.

D-Engraver Limited has helped many businesses in the Advanced Manufacturing and Healthcare sectors to implement cutting-edge IOT solutions that are fully powered by blockchain.

The D-E Chain that D-Engraver Limited developed is up to 10,000 times transactions per second (TPS) of the existing Bitcoin Network but prided on low energy consumption for requiring only basic network, data storage and computing capability.

With pioneering blockchain-based technology, D-Engraver Limited has placed itself at the forefront of Global ESG and Web-3.0 decentralisation, which shall inaugurate the elimination of traditional intermediaries.

This Strategic Partnership between Robinsons, Lawyers and D-Engraver Limited envisages the setting up of a major joint venture which aims to launch an E-Signature platform during early-2022.

In cooperation with Robinsons, Lawyers’ cybersecurity team, this new E-Signature platform will allow users to execute legal documents by digital signatures, which are irreversibly time-stamped and safely encrypted on the D-Engraver Blockchain.

Connecting with the development of online courts across jurisdictions, we shall soon witness the unlocking of a new age and the making of Tomorrow’s Lawyers through this promising partnership.
