Session: Personal Electronic Voting Powered by Blockchain
Transparency with Personal Electronic Voting Powered by Blockchain
Covid-19 has audited many areas of our lives and one of them is the trust we can put in digital systems for sensitive topics such as how we formally express our opinions, both in governmental democracy and share ownership. At Thrupny we believe that personal electronic voting is safer and can reach more people than postal or in person voting. Our aim is to prove that the conditions are right to implement evoting today.
- The pre-conditions for safe evoting
- The role of blockchain in evoting
- What is “personal electronic voting”?
- Other technologies and processes to make evoting ubiquitous and safe
