As you may have read in the title, we have been mentioned as a leader in blockchain and decentralized voting systems on Crypto News Day. Crypto News Day is a website and a blog that covers the top Bitcoin and cryptocurrency news of the day. This includes anytime someone uses the technology behind Bitcoin (blockchain technology).
The article that Follow My Vote was mentioned in was covering a new Australian political party called the Neutral Voting Bloc. This political party is going to be using blockchain technology to register and retain the history of opinions for its members. Those members and their voices will then be represented in the Australian parliament.
We are excited to see blockchain technology utilized in the political spectrum. Follow My Vote is pushing for provably honest election and decentralized voting in legitimate elections around the world. We have also envisioned companies and political parties gauging consensus within their respective organizations with blockchain technology. It is a great feeling to see others pushing for these same ideals.
The following snippet is from the article where Follow My Vote and our decentralized voting system was mentioned. Crypto News Day also linked to one of our cooler info-graphics on blockchain technology which can be seen here.
Blockchain technology lends itself well to use in voting systems. By providing a secure way for each person to register their vote on a public record whilst still maintaining the option for users to remain anonymous, and with little possibility for anybody to tamper with those votes, the blockchain is able to offer significant improvements over current systems in terms of security and transparency. Several tech start-ups are aiming to provide off-the-shelf solutions for blockchain voting, such as FollowMyVote and BitCongress.
