It seems like no industry cannot be disrupted by the digital ledger technology. We often hear that the transition to distributed ledgers is improving financial systems, healthcare records, supply chain management, etc. But an operating blockchain based voting system is something that we all probably need most. And here’s why.
Even though it varies from country to country, there are problems of fraud and corruption when it comes to elections. Often, these problems occur during the calculation process after the votes are already submitted. The decentralized ledger allows elimination of intermediaries between voters and elected candidates, ensuring a higher level of democracy and transparency, not mentioning the decreased cost for elections.
