India’s Election Commission Developing Blockchain System for Voting
The Election Commission of India is collaborating with the Indian Institute of Technology to develop a blockchain system for voting, the Chief Election Commissioner has reportedly revealed. The new system aims to allow Indians to vote even when they are away from their hometowns. According to reports, about 900 million people were eligible to vote in the 2019 elections but only about 300 million people, did not vote largely due to the reason that they were unable to get to their polling booth on voting day.
The blockchain technology is permeating the global market and technology as many nations keep adopting the technology. Remember that the USA Navy now uses blockchain technology too.
