What's the chance of using Digital Signatures on Exe files?
The Software is amazing and I believe will increase the reputation of it.

Technically, no problem*. But someone would have to pay for the signing certificates, as they are very expensive.

Note that Microsoft's updates are all signed.

*Do you know about the CCleaner disaster that happened recently? A malware, residing inside a correctly signed executable from a trusted publisher. In other words, a signed file does NOT mean it is malware-free, not in the least. Actually, it's worse, as many AV scanners skip correctly signed (and thus trusted) files.
