Well, first of all I'm very curious if there's already a solution on improving the voting system so it won't be easily cheated.  Undecided

The biggest problem that blockchain solves is the problem of trust!

A voting system based on blockchain can provide better transparency and security.

Using block chain technology to vote can ensure that the authenticity of voting can protect voters' privacy!

I believe it will take at least 10 years more to get blockchain fully integrated into the society.

There are some issues need to be solved:
  • System's user can have only one «account» (or «wallet») to vote. Nobody can vote twice.
  • Nobody can't see your vote. To be clear, everyone can see it, but didn't know that it is YOU.

As I know, first issue is hard to implement, without making second one... But it is temporary problem =)

Definitely. Blockchain can ensure more accurate databases. And it can probably support remote voting too, allowing more people to vote. This technology will allow us and the voting process to take place without much physical interaction. It can be entirely virtual. I think this says a lot about how highly digital (and less prone to human errors) our future will be.

Yep, we can see results that won't vary and there's no way for someone to modify the votes that has been cast.  Smiley

It will make elections fair.

i would say that would be the real democracy when you have a voting system based on blockchain, as it assures you can only vote once and its secrecy is maintained.

Bitcoin whale makes ‘enormous’ losing bet, so now other traders have to foot the bill
A trader on Hong Kong-based exchange OKEx made “an unusually large long position order" worth about $416 million and was unable to cover the loss as bitcoin prices slumped last week.
Because the exchange's insurance fund couldn't cover it, other customers will have a portion of their earnings used to pay the bill.
The event shines a light on risks of trading cryptocurrency, even on the world’s biggest exchanges.


The gamble made on OKEx, one of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchanges, was worth about $416 million, according to a company statement and the price of bitcoin futures Friday.
Because of the sheer size of the order and bitcoin's price slump the exchange said it couldn't cover the loss. As a result, it implemented a clawback policy or what it called a "societal risk management mechanism." Users with a net profit will have a portion of their earnings taken back to cover the difference between the liquidated price and the settled price.

The trader, identified only as "ID 2051247," initiated what the exchange called "an unusually large long position order" of more than 4 million contracts on July 31. The exchange said it immediately contacted the client and requested "several times to partially close the positions to reduce the overall market risks."
"However, the client refused to cooperate, which lead to our decision of freezing the client's account to prevent further positions increasing," OKEx said on its website. "Shortly after this preemptive action, unfortunately, the BTC price tumbled, causing the liquidation of the account."


And many think BITCOIN can become a currency    NO CHANCE ..To much up and down   NOW imagine there wasn't that much up and down would people then lose
interest because of not much action ?  BITCOIN good for some bad for others  BUT never will it become a currency  not ever  not enough plus some have so many
that the spread is not fair and would destroy the system  ..

How does it work this blockchain of yours  as in the voting   how will it work ..
Not saying it cannot be done but how will it be done.?

I guess it should promote transparency and responsibility for everyone and, probably, result in better living conditions through better management.

Blockchain implemented into the voting technology could eliminate voter fraud and boost turnout. It will make it more convenient for citizens to vote while abroad, irrespective of the distance and time. It is also a beneficial tool for the election commission to maintain transparency in the electoral process, minimize the cost of conducting elections, streamline the process of counting votes and ensure that all votes are counted.

I agree. Just wanted to add that no other third party can interfere...

Since blockchain technology is decentralized it is very possible that we can used it to solve the problems of voting and our electioneering system.  We are having Alot of issues with the system we are having now and we are not to be able to stop the manipulations.

I believe it can, it should, and it must. I'm looking forward to it. I don't think it'll change our human nature, but, at least, I hope it will change the level of trust, which is also very important.
