Can someone explain the electronic first curtain? What does 'electronic' signify?

I know there are 2 curtains to a shutter mechanism on the D810...first curtain and rear curtain.

I know the first one opens up first to initiate the exposure, and the rear curtain functions to end the exposure (under regular shooting scenarios).

I'm wondering how this new style of first curtain is ''superior''?
