voting is a way that can be done to find out how much the community accepts and uses blockhcain technology, but how can that vertification be done honestly and safely because this is until now a scourge for some people

Block chain now has become a new era and Japan has done a great work by using it. But I have a concern that Venezuela might not be the next one to create new invention using it as their government don’t support it yet. They might do it but it will take a long time

That's a great news. Blockchain technology is now being implemented on every sectors of our lives. Tsubuka has recently experimented voting system by blockchain technology. The results were successful. I think if we implement blockchain Technology correctly, it might bring revolutionary changes in our lives.

Chances are low for Venezuela for making it as the next cut because crypto are banned in that country still. Russia might have a chance though because they do have high participation from their end. And they do have good teams and good funding too.

Would they? what if the network is being controlled by the goverenment it self? 51% attack would be an easy way for them to manipulate the results... Unless they use a 3rd party blockchain like ethereum. There is nothing stopping them to manipulate the results.

Ethereum's blockchain in no shape or form offers any decentralization, especially with how you only need to make sure you catch Vitalik and you're pretty much good to go as government.

Ethereum has rolled back the chain already to save investor funds, and that with a minority agreement! In other words, Ethereum is pretty much the last blockchain you would want to use for these purposes, especially if you take into consideration that Vitalik recently admitted to write a fork in case he's forced to do so. It's a complete lunatic.

Voting itself is and will always be prone to some extent of manipulation, even on the most decentralized network as the one from Bitcoin.

I think not only Japan, but also every other countries should use blockchain system. Because the old bank vault sytem to store datas are very unrelyable. It can change a developing country by eradicating the risk of data manupulation.

It is not only in Japam or Venezuela, many people see the positive and advantages of Crypto. It is because Crypto uses the blockchain technology which offers simplicity and transparency system.  I think it might be use for government in many instance or agency.

This is a sign that Japan is strong in search of transparency, accuracy, justice, innovation and speed. Presently now blockchain is the only  technology that can offer it in a system. All the countries need blockchain in their electoral system in order to ascertain a high level of free and fair election.

Tsubuka, one of the cities in Japan was chosen by the Japanese government become a city of science, and a few days ago, the city government there conducted an experiment to implement a voting system with blockchain.
and the experiment was successful, the voting used identity card verification in a decentralized network typology.

this is an example that blockchain will become part of our lives. blockchain will have an important role now and in the future.

in my opinion, next is Venezuela that will create new innovations and changes in the crypto world.

Blockchain might be an effective and efficient way to use in voting. As we know that even though some people say that it has high risk due to the free framework whereas people might access freely. However, the transparency system and principle of blockchain technology makes it proper use as the voting system. Blockchain will be more worth in future and I think others countries can adopt Japan.

Its good to see that what we talked in this forum will be implemented today. I knew that blockchain can be a tool to use to provide decentralization and transparency throughout the world. Making it as an equipment on voting is a good idea because it will prevent those candidates that manipulates the election. No more biased and officials that will be elected will come to the hands of majority.

Japan perhaps see and notice that Blockchain technology is positive and proper to use for voting. It is nice sound to hear from Japan, I am waiting for other countries and specially my own country use blockchain in any instances. It might be good because blockchain technology provides transparency and accuracy. It can minimize and prevent manipulation of data.

Venezuela is a dictatorship. Blockchain doesn't work well in a dictatorship because autocrats want control and decentralized systems cannot be controlled. Venezuela isn't going to adopt blockchain in any official capacity and the government will repress any attempts to adopt any type of crytpo currency. Control is far more important to them than lifting the country out of poverty because even when the country is poor the dictator is rich.

Blockchain can actually be used for voting due to its transparency. But I doubt if most corrupt politicians would want to use it in elections voting. I fully support this blockchain technology for electioneering processes.

This actually would bring total transparency during an election. But do you think people are ready? Do you think they will understand the technology required for voting? Are they actually ready or will end up hesitating to vote? Too many questions, one answer: They will need to be educated about the technology before these are implemented.

Well for Japan its a yes, they are always open for innovative ways to improve their daily lives and that is what I admire them the most. They are not afraid to try new ideas and they just test them out just like what is stated by OP. People can now thrust blockchain in election because of this move by the Japanese People.

Lol, Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do with Ethereum. Believe it or not, I haven't even looked into what plasma is and how it functions, All I know is it will solve the scalability issue of ethereum.

How and Why? I can't think of a way to manipulate results if every single voter is securing the network. Even if you have a two party system and supporters of the majority party collaborate to do a 51% attack. But why would they do that, if they are the majority? It doesn't make any sense.

The initiative taken by Japan is a good thing indeed given they have a stable economy. But cannot be adopted by Vanezuela because they are going through high inflation, so they have other things to worry about at the moment

I think there's a solution to clear that confusion, I think the government need not to explain one by one how the Blockchain works they but should simplify the process and the Blockchain will take care of everything on the background. Blockchain is a good help in government processes and transactions to keep everything recorded and tamper proof.

Givent that it is Japan that we are talking about who has a stable economy, it is alright for them to take this initiative. But Venezuela is not in the same position as Japand and they have other things to worry about right now.

The technology brought by blockchain is one of the most significant development in the modern era. The potential if decentralization is highly anticipated. Though, there are drawbacks and limitations in this technology, they'll just need to improve to make it suitable with the different systems.

Venezuela is unlikely to prosper as long as Chavez and his men don't stop thinking about their own personal interests. Nothing will change the scenario there. But, for Japan, I am very hopeful. Their financial service agency is working very hard to implement cryptocurrencies into their financial system and now this news of utilizing blockchain really gave me hope.
