Great new article by Jodie Lauren Smith from AllStocks, an Israeli Blockchain startup:
As blockchain technology moves into new spaces, politics is the space where it is heavily speculated to make a difference, but is blockchain the answer?
Election tampering is a huge concern across the world. Election fraud and election tampering directly undermine the foundation of democracy. The vast majority of us want to live in a society where we get to contribute to the laws that govern us and to get a say in the people who make those laws. Allegations of fraud were rife in the 2016 US elections.
Western countries already have an issue with voter turnout. In the 2016 US elections voter turnout dipped to nearly its lowest point in two decades, only 58.1% of the voting eligible population voted. This put the US at rank 28 out of 35 highly developed countries for voter turnout. This isn’t only a problem for the US, but for the UK and much of Europe.
