  Our technology

  • WillBits is a web-based application using trusted digital identity verification, encryption, and distributed ledger (blockchain) technologies that enable secure communications between authorised parties and integrates seamlessly with software commonly used by law firms.
  • Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology. This means that encrypted data is packaged as a ‘block’ and distributed amongst a community of authorised users. Each block is linked to the previous block forming a ‘chain’. Authorised users within the community achieve consensus about new blocks and the consistency of the chain creating an immutable and verifiable record of the encrypted data recorded
