Justin Johnson

Justin Johnson is a Seattle-based Web Developer at HelloSign. His excitement around blockchain is rather recent, though he’s quickly become interested the innovation happening in both software and community organizing in the Web3 space. In his free time, Justin moonlights as a sound designer for theater shows, and enjoys creating art that lies at the intersection of technology and performance.


Many eSignature technologies have seen rapid, steady growth for the same reason: digitizing approval workflows creates so much value for the parties involved. But what if there was a way to build even more trust and value with customers into this process? By leveraging the blockchain, it’s possible to facilitate digital agreements with significantly deeper levels of security and transparency. In this session, we’ll explore the topic of writing digital agreements to the blockchain and demo a working proof of concept that writes to the Polygon PoS (Proof of Stake) chain using open source tooling. We’ll have some time for questions at the end.
