Since purchasing Blockchain Technologies Corporation (BTC), technology-enabled election service provider Global Election Services (GES), (wholly owned subsidiary of Global Arena Holding, Inc. (GAHC)) has completed an initial round of testing of its blockchain voting software prototype, which was designed and built by BTC.
Founder of BTC, Nick Spanos, proclaimed that it was a simple and effective system that would solve the problem of old and unreliable voting machines threatening the democratic election process. During the testing three main highlights were noted. Firstly, one hundred ballots were tested, each one with a common voting mistake, and every vote was identified and tabulated correctly. Secondly, the new system is twice as fast as current methods and is resistant to electronic tampering. Finally, the tests concluded that the system would require fewer employees to administer it as the number of elections increased.
John Matthews, CEO of GAHC, stated that the increased speed and decreased overhead required by the new blockchain voting system would allow GES to administer its elections, currently around 500 per year, with greater efficiency.
