Blockchain will help prevent fraud in elections
Features of blockchain technology will make it irreplaceable in the conduct of elections, representatives of the Australian start-up Horizon State are sure. The developers intend to launch an application on the territory of Indonesia, with the help of which people could take part in the voting.
This project is expected to be deployed on the island of Sumatra this summer. One of the authors of the idea Nimo Naamani said that the main goal of the platform based on blockchain is to ensure the maximum involvement of the community in making important decisions. You can install the application on your mobile phone. Thus, the population will participate more actively in public life, developers consider.

Another undeniable advantage of this approach is the experts believe that the transparency of voting is increased. As is known, elections rarely go without falsifications, which creates many problems. Therefore, blockchain is considered by experts as the final solution of this issue, because technology will not allow interested persons to interfere in an honest voting process.

The authors of the concept will evaluate the implementation of the project in Sumatra, in order to subsequently offer it to other regions of Indonesia. According to the developers, many organizations are already showing interest in using blockchain solutions in their activities.
