The service of mutual legal assistance documents through electronic delivery is prohibited by the formal diplomatic approach and not approved by many conventions and regulations in sending documents from one country to another over the past few years.

In the Internet of Things world, the service through electronic delivery is indispensible and convenience. Under the ideas, I want to research the related issues about the service of mutual legal assistance documents through electronic delivery to provide the legitimate and the feasibility.

Council Regulation (EC) No 1393/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 November 2007 had amended and repealed the Council Regulation (EC) No 1348/2000 on the service in the Member States of judicial and extrajudicial documents in civil or commercial matters (service of documents). Expanding electronic service for delivery judicial or extra-judicial documents for every country will be popular in the future.

I boldly proposed in this article that the electronic delivery judicial or extra-judicial documents of mutual assistant in civil and commercial matters through the Blockchain method and take advantage of the Digital signature produced by Ethereum, or similar to this way, providing a digital signature as a reference to protect privacy and to be as the security protection.

Furthermore, this article introduces all of the defects of the electronic service will be improved if the delivery sends on the Blockchain.
