September 3, 2018
The government of the city of Tsukuba, Japan, has tested blockchain applied in voting procedures. The event took place around a week ago, 119 city residents cast a vote for projects of the city’s further development which they believe to be useful.
The voting system included a decentralized network and identity verifying hardware. So the citizens put their IDs inside the machine and thus were allowed to vote for a project. This being done, the system saved the encrypted data in the decentralized net.
Mid-summer blockchain was applied in elective process for tests in Zug, Switzerland. Moving on, the 2024 president elections in Russia are likely to be held with the use of blockchain.
