Introducing FollowMyVote DAC, AKA BitShares Vote






FollowMyVote Voting DAC is developed by FollowMyVote in association with BitShares.

In democratic societies throughout the world, elections are plagued with accusations of illegitimacy stemming from all sorts of issues, such as flawed registration processes, inconsistent voter ID laws, cases of widespread voter fraud, non-sensible restrictions, vulnerable voting machine technology, and a general lack of transparency.

We must acknowledge that the key issue that needs to be solved is the lack of transparency in government run elections, in the Unites States and across the globe. If we can properly address this singular issue, we’d essentially solve all the other problems that plague the industry and would have the opportunity to begin hosting accurate elections that result in an agreeable consensus.

With the 2016 U.S. Presidential and Congressional Elections right around the corner, it seems that the time has finally come to leverage the latest technology to develop a voting system that permits the hosting of secure and transparent elections with agreeable outcomes that makes efficient use of taxpayer money.

In today’s world, it is finally possible to host verified and transparent elections in an end-to-end voting system encoded within a Decentralized Autonomous Company (DAC). A voting DAC is the key to solving the transparency problem current electronic voting systems face today, as it provides a valuable service that allows people to vote in elections that are secure, transparent, and free from corruption.

In the near future, Follow My Vote will releasing the first voting DAC in history using the BitShares Toolkit for building DACs, which will be called the VOTE DAC. Development will happen in stages, with the first stage being the development of a proto-DAC, as it will be released with limited features. We will refer to the partial ownership of the VOTE DAC as a VOTE or VOTES, similar to how one would refer to owning shares of a traditional company. Launching initially as a proto-DAC will allow for the trading of VOTES while the remaining features are under development.

The VOTE DAC is a game-changing technology that has the potential to become the voting platform of the future!

Seize this moment. The time is now.

This is really interesting, but obviously something like this is not going to get used for national political elections anytime even remotely soon. Its good to be ambitious, but do you have any smaller example use cases in mind?

Company elections for example, or some voting regarding what yoghurt flavour to introduce in the cafeteria.

Is this DAC a pure public service, or is it meant to operate at a profit?

Can you explain how this one will accomplish this goal?

Seems like a no brainer to me. This is going to make a lot of people a lot of money. Get in while you can, if you aren't already too late  Wink

This is a very interesting idea , however i don't like the idea of a system in which everyone knows who everyone else voted for. Would it not be possible for for someone to win an election and then use this knowledge to hassle people that voted against them.

I thought people could see numbers but not identities. Doesn't this thing use Bitshares' TITAN for anonymous voting?

5 days left if you want to claim your stake in BitShares Vote!

Holding BitShares PTS in your wallet or on Bter/BTC38 is the way to get in on this!

See OP and this picture for more information.
