The scary truth is that blockchain is taking over the world, it has taken over currency now its taking over voting as well.
An announcemet was made recently which depicts that the City of Denver will implement a mobile voting platform backed with blockchain tech targeting the “active-duty military, their eligible dependents and overseas voters,” who will be able to use their smartphones to participate in the Denver municipal elections. As the article states:
“Eligible voters will be able to participate in the upcoming election by opting in to vote electronically on their smartphones. Voters will fill out an absentee ballot request, complete their authentication with the […] application, and submit their ballot for the election.”
To achieve this goal, there has to be a partnership with mobile voting platform Voatz, technical provider Tusk Philanthropies and the National Cybersecurity Center.
Almost a year ago, blockchain-based platform Voatz was used for mobile voting in the primary elections in West Virginia
