Increased Scrutiny for American Voting Systems Using Blockchain Technology
Blockchain Technologies Corp., the New York- based company which aims to bring technology and transparency to the election process, has expand its suite of tamper-resistant blockchain election technology. With the latest addition, voters have the ability to report any suspicious activity or behaviour observed in the election. This work comes amid news of hackers threatening the upcoming election and at least one candidates vocalising concerns about possible rigging, undermining the public’s trust in the election process.
The incident reporting system, which is now live, will allow voters to report any incidents they suspect of being foul play onto a blockchain database from a website accessible via mobile phone or computer. By using the Florincoin blockchain as the means of storage, the reports submitted on the website by voters will become a permanent record that is viewable by anyone and cannot be changed or deleted. The app allows voters to enter contact info if they wish to be contacted for further details about their observations.
