DYK: You are 7 degrees of separation from anyone on the DocuSign Global Trust Network

September 25, 2017 Chris McMath

Priya transacted with Takahiro—who transacted with Sam—who transacted with Cillian—who transacted with Juliette—who transacted with Rodrigo—who transacted with emea@docusign—who transacted with you.

More than 200 million all-time users have sent or signed a document through DocuSign. 95% of them—through a chain of transactions—are connected to each other.

Of these users, some are more connected than others, but everyone can reach everyone else within 19 degrees. And; almost everyone can reach almost everyone else within 7 degrees.

Here are four samples of the network containing a few hundred DocuSigners. Each line represents a transaction between two users.

While DocuSign plays only a minor role in holding these communities together, there is a slight “network effect”, for three reasons:

  1. More connections translate into more trust
  2. The fact that Priya has adopted DocuSign, makes it more appealing to transact with her.
  3. Even a loosely tied community provides ample opportunity for peer-to-peer sharing of best practices.

Though not 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon, you are likely just 7 degrees of separation from any of the 200+ million users on the DocuSign Global Trust Network.
